Book Review: Not Cool by Greg Gutfeld

Not Cool –  by Greg Gutfeld

The Hipster Elite and Their War on You

Description from Amazon.com: Behind every awful, dangerous decision lurks one evil beast: the Cool.    From politics to the personal, from fashion to food, from the campus to the locker room, the desire to be cool has infected  all aspects of our lives. At its most harmless, it is annoying. At its worst, it is deadly, on a massive scale.  The Cool are the termites of life, infiltrating every nook and cranny and destroying it from within. The Cool report the news, write the scripts, teach our children, run our government—and each day they pass judgment on those who don’t worship at the altar of their coolness.  The cool fawn over terrorists, mock the military, and denigrate employers. They are, in short, awful people.   From what we wear and what we eat, to what we smoke and who we poke, pop culture is crafted and manipulated by the cool and, to Greg Gutfeld, that’s Not Cool.   How do the cool enslave you? By convincing you that:
– If you don’t agree with them no one will like you.   If you don’t follow them you will miss out on life.
– If you don’t listen to them you will die a lonely loser
How do you vanquish the cool and discover your own true self? Read this book.
In  Not Cool,  Greg Gutfeld, bestselling author of The Joy Of Hate, lays out the battle plan for reclaiming the real American ideal of cool–building businesses, protecting freedom at home and abroad, taking responsibility for your actions, and leaving other people alone to live as they damn well please.  Not Cool fights back against the culture of phonies, elitists, and creeps who want your soul. It’s not a book, it’s a weapon—and one should be armed with it at all times.

Reviewed for Citizens Journal by David M. Stewart:

For so many of us who have suffered from the careless effects of those who are the self-appointed royalty of our egalitarian society in which we believed we lived, this book comes to the rescue.  It affirms what so many of us felt in our hearts.  The desperate group of clowns who by virtue of their celebrity believe they are most certainly our betters.  Greg Gutfeld delivers the message loud and clear: Celebrities are mostly very nice looking, certainly famous, self-centered, out of touch with reality, intellectual lightweights whose logic and intellect would fit nicely into a sequined clutch purse.  Fame has absolutely no pre-defined connection with intelligence.  We have dealt with these self-absorbed gangs since grammar school (k-10) and high school and as we all grew up and began pursuing our “mundane” not famous lives.  The not famous provide all the luxuries, media, and access the Cool people so desperately need to display their coolness.

Greg Gutfeld’s own words say it better than I ever could: “From politics to the personal, from fashion to food, from the campus to the locker room, the desire to be cool has infected all aspects of our lives.  At its most harmless, it is annoying.  At its worst, it is deadly.  The cool are the termites of life, infiltrating every nook and cranny and destroying it from within.”

Get the book, you will feel better about yourself, that is unless you are cool. – David M Stewart
