Presents a humorous plan for reclaiming the real American ideal of cool, from building businesses and protecting freedom at home and abroad to taking responsibility for one's actions and leaving other people alone to live as they please.
"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 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"-- Provided by publisher.

I dislike hipsters as much as the next person, especially the man-bun (I mean really come on.) I picked this book up on a whim even though I understood the writer to be a right-wing conservative I thought it might be funny. But he is not funny, in fact I found him to be a blowhard. I dislike much of what he does, but in trying to make a point is he comes off exactly as those he claims to hate so much. Too cool to be bothered. Ugh.

I had never heard of this guy. I don't even remember what caught my eye and made me reserve it at the library. I gave up on it after half an hour. At first I was trying to read it but soon I was skimming... he is very right wing... approves of fracking...hates Obama...seems to have some odd definitions of cool, where it means anything liberal, which he hates. I don't get it. Didn't entertain me or offer any information. Unreadable.

Love Gutfeld. I love his sarcasm. He tells it like it is, but he's hysterical doing it.

The obvious thing to do is simply ignore them and they will shrivel and disappear
