4.0 out of 5 stars Quotations From Chairman Ann
IDHAB is mostly another 'Best Of' collection, however unlike 'How To Talk To A Liberal' - which featured complete columns - the format here is individual quotes, one-liners or paragraphs, on a particular subject gathered together in chapters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Garbage
Complete and utter rubbish, so badly written as to be totally unreadable.
Absolutely filled with sexist, racist, homophobic, ant-semitic, anti-islamic, anti-human, nationalist trash.
The entire thing is just so predictably boring, republican, neo-nazi, neo-liberal pseudo-academic tripe.
Nothing is backed up by anything other than Coulter's far right,...

4.0 out of 5 stars Quotations From Chairman Ann, 28 Oct. 2007
IDHAB is mostly another 'Best Of' collection, however unlike 'How To Talk To A Liberal' - which featured complete columns - the format here is individual quotes, one-liners or paragraphs, on a particular subject gathered together in chapters.

There is some original material here, in the shape of the chapter intros, and a splendid opening chapter which recapitulates all the supposedly career ending controversies Ann has been involved in (and it runs to 31 pages).

The rest of the book includes some classic Coulter - with parts every bit as good as 'Godless', 'Treason' or 'Slander' - the only problem is that you then realise that's because they're actually quotes from those books in the first place. Add in the fact that the book is physically smaller than previous works, and it's obvious there's just not that much actually here.

On the plus side, a lot of the quotes are from interviews, speeches and the like, that even avid fans might have missed first time round. Plus, of course, the format allows maximum scope for Ann's zingers. Take her line that 'I think it's useful to see Monica on TV as often as possible, and to remember that President Clinton spent more time meeting with this nitwit hussy than he did with the director of the CIA'. In so far as it combines ruthless rhetoric with a serious point, it's the epitome of Ann's writing.

At the end of the day, if you like Coulter, this is the kind of Coulter that you'll like - just don't expect too much new stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ann Redux, 9 Oct. 2007

M. A. Ramos (Florida USA) - See all my reviews

I do find that most of her books are written with witty and sarcastic humor. And at times she goes a bit to far with her language seeming to rely on shock value to get her point out. Though there are some new sections in this book, it is mainly quotes. This compilation of her previous writings and talks should have been disclosed on the cover. If this would have been mentioned I would not have bought it and waited for the library to get it. In this book you can tell she was writting, compiling, this book of the wuotes she feels have most outraged her enemies. But lets face it that is how she makes her living. If you love to read books by Ann Coulter this is one you can easily miss if you have read the others. Just do not expect all new material and you will not be disappointed. This book is explicit in her desire to cause a reaction from her biting words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liberals Beware: This book will give you "quip-lash", 18 July 2008
By 
Smug Leftists who talk down to the common people must be outraged by a writer/commentator like Coulter who exposes them as the self serving hypocrites they truly are. Well, at least the average "born with a silver spoon in his/her mouth" liberal has enough inherited wealth to be able to afford to pay for extensive therapy after reading even a page of this book !!

This review is from: If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans (Paperback)
Complete and utter rubbish, so badly written as to be totally unreadable.
Absolutely filled with sexist, racist, homophobic, ant-semitic, anti-islamic, anti-human, nationalist trash.
The entire thing is just so predictably boring, republican, neo-nazi, neo-liberal pseudo-academic tripe.
Nothing is backed up by anything other than Coulter's far right, extremist fundamentalist christian belief system.
Please, I am begging you, do NOT buy this book. It WILL make you a worse person for having read it, both in terms of personality and intelligence. Please do not buy this bile.
