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 their coolness. The cool fawn over terrorists, mock the military, and denigrate employers. They are, in short, awful people.
In Not Cool, Greg Gutfeld, host of Red Eye and cohost of The Five, and best-selling 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.

Severely Biased with some really good points
I liked the relevance and the points Gutfield was making in the context of modern politics, issues, and pop-culture.
He made Gutfeld sound even more like a douche by using exceptionally well-tuned sarcastic, whiny, and other emotional voices. Good work, I think. Just annoying though.
Yes. It is worth getting the viewpoints from another individual who has overlapping viewpoints and different viewpoints as well.
Severely biased and opinionated, Gutfeld goes on some of the Obama is the worst president ever tirades that could have been wayy more educated and well thought out. Don't get me wrong, I didn't vote for him, but I thought his arguments could have been far more plausible if he had used more factual information instead of inserting his opinions. I also think it is ironic that he uses quips, one-liners and mostly bad jokes to fluff his writing. Gutfeld nails it on some issues such as age, and race, but totally misses his mark when he tried to talk about women's role in society throughout the years.
Great book, but terrible choice for narrator
Greg Gutfeld, for crying out loud!! Greg, why didn't you read your own book? This guy reads like some old worn-out broadway actor, with golden toned enunciation. The humor, which is such a critical part of this book is totally lost by horrible reading by Kramer.
