I am a somewhat judgmental and stubborn Democrat, but alas I picked up this book. It had me literally laughing out loud and was a wealth of information and facts. It is rare to read something so thought-provoking. Cupp and Joshpe clearly did their homework and did it well. I hope this gets the attention it "rightfully" deserves.

As someone who resents the intense polarization and "us-versus-them" mentality in American politics over the past 20 years, I found this book to be a surprisingly refreshing take on some common misconceptions about Republicans. I know too many people who are quick to reflexively attach "labels" to Republicans or Democrats, conservatives or liberals, without having the facts to support their arguments. I didn't think that a book with this subject matter could have me chuckling the whole way through, but it did. I'm betting that it's going to change some skeptical minds. At the very least, it'll improve the "quality" of political debates in coffeeshops across America by injecting more factual accuracy into the mix.

Like the authors of the book,I am a conservative living in New York. I find myself facing the many challenges that are expressed in each chapter. The book wittily addresses each stereo-type. Even if you disagree with right winged political beliefs- this book will make you laugh and maybe even remind you of somebody you know.

This is a great read for anybody and I recommend it to all!

Progress of any kind or political persuasion can't come from a denial of reality, a viewpoint shared by NYTimes columnists as well as Ayn Rand. Yet, pursuits of this noble goal often degenerate into simplistic name-calling, and a concomitant spiral into the world of straw-men-bashing and knee-jerk labeling.

Given the frightful prevalence of these narrow-minded specters populating any attempt at intellectual discourse, I was thrilled with S.E. Cupp and Brett Joshpe's attempt to clear some of the air. This book is well thought, well composed, and well researched. One enjoys a humorously enjoyable blend of pop-culture and Edmund Burke, all the while taking aim at those on the left who selectively deny the reality of the beliefs and character of Republicans.

As an Obama supporter, I am nonetheless happy to have read this book because of the broadened perspective it affords my understanding of American politics. If you truly believe that a sober assessment of "the other side" from a quality spokesperson is valuable, Cupp and Joshpe are very capable guides.

With seemingly every pundit churning out mindless political drivel, Why You're Wrong is a breath of fresh air. While you might not agree with the political leaning of the book, you WILL find it refreshing that Cupp and Joshpe have decided to talk about themselves, and not attack others. Why You're wrong reminds you that stereotypes exists for all corners of society, and Republicans, just like other stereotyped groups, deserve the chance to dispel untruths.

As Publications Chairman of the New York Young Republican Club, the largest, oldest, and most active Young Republican organization in the United States, "Why You're Wrong About the Right" has become a great ally in setting the record straight about the Republican Party. My liberal roommates, believe it or not, concede that they were mostly wrong about the Republican Party after reading it.

It is a book that everyone (from middle schoolers to retirees) should read to get around all the false inflammatory stereotypes and get the real scoop, for example, about how we "eco-destroying" Republicans are actually responsible for the EPA, Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, and more.

I cannot say enough about how effectively and humorously "Why You're Wrong..." turns the tables on what media stereotypes want you to believe. I'm passing copies to everyone I know and I'd recommend everyone doing the same. It's a great eye opening read.

I began reading this book because my co-host and I were going to interview the authors on our radio show. Of course I wanted to read the book before the interview so that I knew what questions to ask and I wanted to be able to know what I was talking about. I would have read the book regardless of enjoyment.
But this book pulled me in right from the start, and soon I was reading it not for the interview, but because I just couldn't put it down. I read the entire book, relishing every word. I couldn't help but take notes because the points made were so relevant and I had to make sure I kept them with me.
Not only did I love the book, when we interviewed S.E. and Brett I loved them as people. These young conservatives have such good heads on their shoulders and I wish them all the best in their future projects. People like Ms. Cupp and Mr. Joshpe are the future of America; thankfully.

Joshpe and Cupp do a great job breaking down the major stereotypes of conservatives and they do it in the most enjoyable way. They not only present facts (thoroughly!) but they also incorporate interviews and contributions from well-known athletes, musicians, writers and, of course, those involved in the political field. It's the most inventive and enjoyable take on the subject and couldn't put it down once I started reading. Definitely recommended!
