Book Review: Not Cool

Not Cool
The Hipster Elite and Their War on You
By Greg Gutfeld 

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. 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? 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 want. Not Cool fights back against the culture of phonies, elitists and creeps who want to take your soul. It's not a book it's a weapon and one you should be armed with at all times. 

Verdict: I have mixed feelings about Not Cool. I love that it's saying that you shouldn't go with the flow and do what others want you to do, but it seems like Greg Gutfeld has a huge chip on his shoulder. A lot of his writing although inspirational it is too often hateful. Very much rightwing and against anything on the left side, this is a good book to read for a different perspective but other than that... I'm not sure.
