I rarely pick up a book to read about which I would be 'topically inclined' agree with, but on having finished it wanted to put it in the trash. It is not that I don't think Coulter and her ilk are reprehensible in how they conduct their 'business', but rather the delivery of the goods here by Estrich was uninspired and boring. Too many 'pundits' are long on emotion and short on logic--and that is very appealing to those that want to 'feel good' about their value positions (religion, politics,ethics). And appealing to the emotions is the best way to circumvent the tedium of laying out a case and arguing it effectively.

I'm not saying that Estrich did not lay out a case and argue it effectively. She did--but it felt like tedium--and I was left wanting a little more cogency on the larger issue that the book portends to tackle. Perhaps Estrich's delivery is why why people are more apt to listen to (and enjoy doing so) "the goofballs" than those who (such as Estrich) tediously present a case to us. It felt more like a nice girl yelling nanny, nanny boo-boos along with other personalization (which I found distracting and of little value)the combination of which I found reduced this book to reading at a grade level that I left long ago. As I write this, I believe that one of the reasons that "I don't hate it" is because Estrich gives us a laundry list of the (oft-time goofy) opinions by the right that are stated as fact. Also, I believe that one of the reasons that "I don't like it" is because it is presented in a way that is too simplistic. And perhaps that might be what was needed for the intended audience.

In the wide world of politics, everyone has their favorites - even multiple favorites. I find Susan Estrich to be a most interesting writer whether it is about politics or not, so I looked forward to reading "Soulless." As a kind of help-book for Ann Coulter, I didn't find it to be that appealing, but the points raised about Ms. Coulter's attack style and the questions raised about her literary and conversational skills were provoking. As Ms. Estrich points out quite well, Ms. Coulter's comments/controversies/insults/appraisals often turn into quotes "all about me": how they can further the career of Ms. Coulter by having people talk about the outrageousness of Ms. Coulter. And, if they can take a swipe at her political enemies, so much the better. The real driving point of the book for me, though, beyond the self-promotional abilities of Ms. Coulter, is the question of what kind of culture are we promoting on our news and entertainment shows by having someone of Ms. Coulter's ilk appear on the media when it is known that insults, fabrications and demeaning characterizations will be the order of the day? Why, when we know what to expect, do we opt to go for the lowest common denominator for our news and entertainment? (It's spelled m-o-n-e-y.) Susan Estrich has written a thought-provoking book, as she does with her newspaper columns, and the above points (and many others) have helped to make this a book worth investigating.

As a person who has come to hate the "personal attack" genre of political books starting to fill the shelves, I approached this with extreme caution. Was Estrich going to simply bash Ann, or would she have the willingness and fortitude to dissect the Coulter message? Fortunately for me and my sanity, there was no personal attack of Ann in the book. Instead it is a well reasoned counter to much of what Coulter wrote in "Godless".

Susan Estrich crawls around inside Coulter's head (yeah...I know, pretty creepy) and examines what she truly believes versus what she says strictly for the publicity. She also examines Ann's arguments and points out ways to overcome her shrill tactics.

I couldn't quite understand why the hard right came out so abusively about this book in the reviews until I read the book. This is absolutely the best debunking of Coulter I have ever read, and the hard right is scared people will actually read this book and learn how to counter Coulter. This is a very well written book with an important message for people of all political parties that don't like the use of smear tactics.

Estrich has finally dared to take on whom Al Franken once called the "reigning diva of the hysterical right", and really nails it, exposing her innacuracies, hypocrisy, and general hatefulness...notice how the 1-star reviews on this page do little more than attack the author's physical appearance, deride her for making the title a parody of Coulter's latest attack piece (um, didn't you neo-cons do the same 10 years ago w/"Al Franken is a Buck-Toothed Moron"?), and regurgitate conservative talking points (the book's an attack on GOPers, Christianity, etc.)..if you actually READ the book, you'd see it's actually a debunking of someone who's distorting these values you supposedly hold dear and making your party look bad by assocation. And if you do read the book, I'm sure you'll find it to be a real eye-opener.

Estrich wants to prove that Coulter is a right-wing fringe who spews hate everytime she opens her political mouth. Fine, Etrich, but please fix this book. The typed out transcripts of interviews were tiresome, especially with Estrich's snarky comments in italics. I'm not sure what Estrich was saying about race in the Willie Horton debacle; Ann makes a better point that it wasn't about race, that it was about a VIOLENT prisoner getting released on FURLOUGH and RAPING a woman. Estrich is convinced it was about race, bringing up the point that Horton was black. And then expounding on how we're all afraids of blacks, blacks have a rep for being violent, etc. Estrich also clouds over the abortion issue by saying that most Americans support it. So what if they do, Susan? Is she trying to change the hearts of the pro-lifers (me, Ann, etc.). Ann does a better job of converting pro-choicers by describing a late-term abortion as "sticking a fork" in the baby's head.

Now, Estrich is right about public schools, in the way that Ann condemns, condemns, condemns them. Estrich realizes the problems with public education, and that in the worst of schools, the parents are partly to blame. I thank Estrich for being realistic about the condition of under-performing public schools.

Still, the book is dated. No reason to read it, unless you read (and loved or hated) Coulter's Godless.
