"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

If possible I may even hate them more than hippies (I'm a metal-head from the 80's go figure.)
But I really hate the current trend of disposable celebrity, i.e. Today your as famous as Jesus tomorrow you are a nameless has-been as the mindless trend eaters move on to the next big thing.
Anyway, we are under siege by the cult of cool these days and quite frankly they are spoiling everything the world over. Being cool now over rides, common sense, responsibility and being a good and decent person is NOT cool. Re-catagorizing the mentally ill as merely a lifestyle and not an illness, thus making their atrocious acts some how acceptable just shows how off kilter our current rating system for what is cool. Romanticizing criminals and the weasly creeps as "unique" individuals and forsaking your moral compass to prostitute your dignity is now the new cool because it's all "ironic" - get it?
I get it. I don't like it and thanks to the outspoken, gutsy verbosity of Gutfeld - my Spirit animal - I know I don't have to accept it and I can hopefully help ridicule them out of existence right alongside Greg. If not at least I can be comforted in my no-coolness and re-read Greg's soothing rant on these creeps.
Bonus: Greg writes like he speaks so you get to enjoy his voice in your head while you read. :)
Gutfeld's charge is that these people (he calls them the "Cool," or the hipster elite) offer nothing in terms of constructive thought or leadership. Instead, he says, they just project attitude--a combination of smug superiority, hostility toward American traditions, and nervous, lock-step political correctness.
What we end up with is a class of thought leaders who are reflexively destructive. Rather than offer thoughtful or helpful critiques, they destructively tear down employers, the military, or other building blocks of our society.
Gutfeld compares this situation to some high schools, where a small clique of the "cool" can destructively control the social thought (and self-image) of all the other students, just by projecting willfulness and attitude, and by destroying anyone else who questions the clique's superiority.
(Gutfeld has been an editor of several magazines, and looking over my comment, it probably good use a good editor. I am good at that, but a bit lazy at the moment. Maybe I will come back and edit it later. Maybe not.)

This book didn't make me laugh out loud like THE JOY OF HATE. But it made me think more and realize that the problems we conservatives face in staying uncool are nearly beyond humor. I wish my liberal friends and family had (for whatever reason) to read this book. Gutfeld managed some humor, but in this world of liberal elitism, there is less and less to laugh about. Maybe Gutfeld's next book should be "How to expose the Cool and fix them."
