An accomplished attorney, she has represented clients including Leona Helmsley, Claus von Bulow, and Michael Milken. The author of several books, including The Case for Hillary Clinton and the national bestseller Sex and Power, she is the Robert Kingsley Professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Southern California Law School.

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.
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 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. Read morePublished on September 8, 2010 by Marie Anne A.
I found this book to be a page-turner. Why should liberals be intimidated by Ann Coulter to the point of wanting to ignore or and maybe she'll go away? Read morePublished on August 6, 2009 by Judy V
Please buy this book. Anything that will keep Susan and her voice off TV and out of sight is a good thing.
And I actually LIKE Susan.
