5.0 out of 5 stars Guilty as charged, 18 May 2011

This review is from: Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America (Hardcover)
Many people, and not just liberal, see red when the name of Ann Coulter is brought up. This has very little to do with the design of her book covers, and everything to do with the perception of her being unduly confrontational and mean-spirited. And yet many of her critics when pressed are seldom able to come up with any particular statement of hers that is outrageous, but rather relay and hearsay and other secondary sources. Granted, she does make many outlandish statements, but they are made as a joke and people who take them too seriously usually don't have very good sense of humor or are unable to appreciate irony. What her critics usually don't hold against her is the factual validity of her writing. Unlike many other pundits with a few books credited to their name, Ann writes and researches all of her books on her own. Despite the healthy dose of humor in her writing, she is not an author of light-reading material. There is a lot of thought-provoking stuff in her books. "Guilty" is no exception. From the opening pages till the end it presents the reader with some of the more outrageous behaviors that have either been neglected or downright praised by the media. The most outrageous of these is the recent cult of single motherhood. As Ann points out, being brought up by a single mother is one of the most significant risk factors for all sorts of problems later on in life. There are many women who with no fault of their own end up raising children on their own, but these are not the women that Ann has an issue with. What's at stake are the women who choose to raise their children with no father around, and these women are increasingly lauded as role models in today's culture. This trend has negative consequences that are already being felt, but are likely only to get worse in the upcoming years. Unfortunately, most of those who criticize Ann for this book miss the point that she was trying to make. This is just one of the examples of the material that is covered in the book. It will inform you, entertain you and outrage you - all at the same time. We are fortunate to have someone like Ann write about these things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here she goes again!, 7 Jan 2009

This review is from: Guilty: Liberal "Victims" and Their Assault on America (Hardcover)
Nobody can say you don't know what you're going to get with an Ann Coulter book, though this is an interesting one because it is being published in the dying days of Bush's administration. The last book was dissapointing, it was merely a collection of quotes taken out of context from her books, columns and speeches, a lazy job which might put people off buying this one.

Well don't let it. I've read an advance copy of this from a colleague in America and she's back to her best. Of course, if you're a lily-livered type who can't bear to hear criticism of Obama and his Democrats this isn't for you.

"Guilty" could not be more relevant right now, the octo-mom scenario proves the accuracy of chapter two. Nothing more can be said, another great book from Ann Coulter.
