Editorial Reviews

Review

"Every page has at least one gut buster, lines so ripe you’ll want to recycle them at the next cocktail party." - Jon David Kahn, Breitbart.com
 
 “Not Cool is a wonderful book, but it is also something more. Now that it has joined Gutfeld’s earlier bestseller, The Joy of Hate, a longstanding problem of American writing has sorted itself out….Our only bona fide misanthrope was Ambrose Bierce, and Greg Gutfeld is his heir.”—Florence King, National Review
 
“Read Greg Gutfeld’s new book to vanquish the uncool “cool,” and with it save the country, while laughing, crying and cursing the whole way through.” –Benjamin Weingarten, The Blaze

I love the rantings of Greg Gutfeld!
W. Stater
I admire Greg's ability to say things in unusual ways that make you smile while knowing the truth in each one you hear or read.
Cynthia Stentzel
Greg Gutfeld is very funny in this book.

I have been a fan of the Gutfeld Institute of Rational Brain Activity for several years now. Writing this review will probably be one of the hardest reviews I've written in Amazon. Taken on its surface, Greg takes on just about every form of lunacy, pop culture, crazy Hollywood "stars," crazy dictators, crazy Hollywood talking heads, all of the news networks, several crazy representatives of different cultures which make up our society, fracking, Obamacare, the American society as it stands today, and if I named everything, that would be my review!

I cannot tell you how much I laughed at various phrases he uses to describe totally ridiculous things people who should know better say or do throughout his stories. The Chapter on Hugo Chavez nearly made me pass out.

I know intelligence when I see it. And from the first day I saw Greg on Red Eye, I knew he was a whole lot smarter than he let on. Greg is that very rare person who has the ability to see through all the BS going on around him, ferret it out, and somehow not only make it make sense, but make sense in a way that make liberals blow flames out of their ears and leave conservatives wondering if he's on their side or not.

Nevertheless, his grasp of today's youth, today's average social network surfer, today's COOLness and how upside down society is becoming because of it, is so spot on, it's like he took a million post it notes, somehow put them in order, and actually makes sense how this invasion of the quantity vs. quality social scale came to be. Then, somehow, he uses his snarky wit and crazy/sane verbiage to bring it all together and MAKE SENSE! A dry fact-filled book would sit on a shelf and collect dust.

I used to think Greg Gutfeld was an idiot. That just goes to show you that you should never form an opinion about anything based on friends' comments without learning about the subject on your own. My first real introduction to him occurred when The Five replaced Glenn Beck in Fox's early evening lineup. Gutfeld's participation in The Five proves him to be among the most insightful pundits on the planet.

His unique brand of 'punditry' (especially as evidenced through the pages of 'Not Cool') is down-to-earth, common-sense-based observation, often of those people and events that are simply accepted as being 'the norm'. Gutfeld teaches us that 'the norm' is too often imposed upon us rather than being a part of a natural 'evolutionary' process.

Greg's commentary is courageous in its refusal to acknowledge politics' sacred cows, and his demeanor in informing us lacks the pomposity of so many others on the right. He has the depth of a Bill Buckley without the verbosity. He talks with us as if he were sitting in our livingroom discussing the sorry state of the world, over a beer. And his candid irreverence is endearing.

When I was reading Not Cool in our study (the 'cool' term for what used to be called a 'den'), Gutfeld's quick, dry, sarcastic wit, in virtually every paragraph, had me consistently laughing out loud to the point where my husband yelled in from the living room, 'Are you reading Dave Barry again???'

I am tired of being talked down to by both liberals and conservatives alike. Tired of their condescension and arrogance. Gutfeld isn't arrogant. He's frank. And his microscope is accurate and unforgiving ... exactly what the American public needs at this watershed moment in history.

This is a topical and witty observation of the zeitgeist and the cultural norms today. If you happen to agree with him, you will simply adore this book. If you don't, and you lack any sense of humor you will loathe it. While 5 stars may seem excessive to some and I had my doubts, in the context of today it is a notch above many tomes which bemoan thestate of the culture.

A simple reminiscence of a middle age man, this book enumerates many of the anguishing developments that those with a little sense of tolerance can smile at, even those who are to the left of Mr. Gutfeld should be able to enjoy. Sometimes his rage peeks through the surface and it is at those times I wish he had spent more time polishing his comic wit. Of course, considering he state of affairs in this country today, I feel that even a room filled with Aristophnes, Twain, Swift, Waugh, Menken, Martial, Amis, Angus Wilson, etc. would not be able to satirize the world today.

It is not that these people are cool, it is that they are shallow, intolerant, and unbelievably pompous that makes any attempt to lampoon them to be so obvious. It is like knowing the punch line of a joke before it is told. In the final analysis, an enjoyable few hours for those who take it like it is.

One of the tougher things to do today is to dissect where the fault lines are in culture that have caused American society to fracture as it has. Gutfeld offers his astute analysis in a fashion accessible not only to adults, but to teens and college-age kids who may need it more than the adults do.

As the Second Disco Era draws to a close, I look forward to my kids reading this. Without preening moralization, Not Cool points out the self-destructive behavior that has been idyllized in modern American society, and offers refreshingly simple antidotes to it... while pointing the reader to the ultimate coolness in rebellion: individualism.
