Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Greg Gutfeld, the host and ringmaster of Fox News' Red Eye has had it with America's hipster elite. He's tired of the self-anointed know-it-alls who preside over everything from politics and media to fashion and what we teach our children. In this collection of trenchant rants, he takes aim at all these ingrates who, he says, don't get America at all. Entertainment for his conservative and libertarian fans.

From the Publisher
"Every page has at least one gut buster, lines so ripe you’ll want to recycle them at the next cocktail party." - Jon David Kahn, Breitbart.com
 
 “Not Cool is a wonderful book, but it is also something more. Now that it has joined Gutfeld’s earlier bestseller, The Joy of Hate, a longstanding problem of American writing has sorted itself out….Our only bona fide misanthrope was Ambrose Bierce, and Greg Gutfeld is his heir.”—Florence King, National Review
 
“Read Greg Gutfeld’s new book to vanquish the uncool “cool,” and with it save the country, while laughing, crying and cursing the whole way through.” –Benjamin Weingarten, The Blaze

    Gutfeld is glorious!

    Greg Gutfeld is one of the best, brightest, and funniest writers of our time. Screw the "cool" elitest hipsters that have dragged our country down. Lucky for us to have Gutfeld who is not cool, just smart and insightful.

    Who is this guy? Worst book ever - found it in an airport and wishing I hadn't read it. Loser with a chip on his shoulder about how poorly he's done in life. All he can get is a gig on Fox News, the home of Lawyer Barbie, Newsreader Barbie, Doctor Barbie.....you get the picture.

    Not Cool

    A great read. Chapter to chapter senarios that explain various ways the public is being duped by government, movie stars, sports figures, last but not least by our vision of self worth. Lots of laughs and my most favorite chapter was about DDT and bedbugs.

    Greg doesn't sugar coat or go the way of PC. He hones right in on the poo we all see everyday and he calls it poo. Refreshing and strangely uplifting! Thanks for the laughs and enlightenment, Greg!

    Enjoyable....if you like Gutfeld on The Five, you'll like the book!

    The book is fun to read because Gutfeld writes like he talks. His examples are current and factual but written when added to his silly and sometimes sarcastic comments, he drives home a point without being dull.

    Greg Gutfeld exposes the phonies of the liberal party and their backwards logic with his side splitting humor. I could not put this book down for a moment. This book is a wonderful read for those who have common sense. Way to go Greg, you're cool in my book.

    Great book.  Gutfeld tells the real truth of how we're all being screwed by the government and all the "cool" people who bow down to
     their socialistic ideas.  All with just the right amount of humor to help make a depressing subject a little bit funny!  This book just
    might wake up some "cool" folks if they have the balls to read it.

    This book is spot on in its analysis. I found myself laughing in agreement throughout the book. Gutfield's wry humor is great.
