Overview

From the irreverent star of Fox News’s Red Eye and The Five, hilarious observations on the manufactured outrage of an oversensitive, wussified culture.

Greg Gutfeld hates artificial tolerance. At the root of every single major political conflict is the annoying coddling Americans must endure of these harebrained liberal hypocrisies. In fact, most of the time liberals uses the mantle of tolerance as a guise for their pathetic intolerance. And what we really need is smart intolerance, or as Gutfeld reminds us, what we used to call common sense.

The Joy of Hate
tackles this conundrum head on--replacing the idiocy of open-mindness with a shrewd judgmentalism that rejects stupid ideas, notions, and people. With countless examples grabbed from the headlines, Gutfeld provides readers with the enormous tally of what pisses us all off. For example:
- The double standard: You can make fun of Christians, but God forbid Muslims. It's okay to call a woman any name imaginable, as long as she's a Republican. And no problem if you're a bigot, as long as you're politically correct about it. 
- The demonizing of the Tea Party and romanticizing of the Occupy Wall Streeters.
- The media who are always offended (see MSNBC lineup)
- How critics of Obamacare or illegal immigration are somehow immediately labeled racists.
- The endless debate over the Ground Zero Mosque (which Gutfeld planned to open a Muslim gay bar next to).
- As well as pretentious music criticism, slow-moving ceiling fans, and snotty restaurant hostesses.

Funny and sarcastic to the point of being mean (but in a nice way), The Joy of Hate points out the true jerks in this society and tells them all off.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Gutfeld is like Voltaire if Voltaire were actually funny.” —Dennis Miller
 
“Greg Gutfeld is a sweet, hysterical, evil genius. Liberals fear him because whenever they look down their noses, they see him. Or at least the top of his head. This is a man who would take time out from starring in two daily television shows just to help someone who has fallen down on the sidewalk. Mainly because it would be so funny to watch him fall. Viva Gutfeld!” —Ann Coulter
 
“According to the Internet, Mother Teresa once defined Joy as ‘a net of love by which you can catch souls.’ In The Joy of Hate, Greg Gutfeld continues her mission—in a completely different way. Hilarious, outrageous, and brilliant, this is the best book on how to think about your fellow man since Atlas Shrugged, and the best book on how to deal with your enemies since The Anarchist’s Cookbook.” —Jonah Goldberg
 
“It’s hard to get through a page of The Joy of Hate without collapsing in tears of laughter. With every paragraph, I’d stop and say ‘You won’t believe what he just said.’ The truth hurts.” —Dana Perino, former White House press secretary, Gutfeld’s cohost on The Five
 
“Greg Gutfeld is this generation’s Mark Twain. Or is that this generation’s Shania Twain? What I’m trying to say is he looks great in a skirt. Also, this book is funny as hell.” —Dan Bova, editor in chief, Maxim magazine
 
“Anger is like sex. It feels good but it’s exhausting—and we often think it’s better if we include more people. But as Greg Gutfeld aptly illustrates, words of outrage should be saved for things that truly are outrageous, or you will ultimately lose all your friends and drive yourself crazy. I, for one, cannot recommend this book strongly enough, and it has nothing to do with my relationship with the author.” —Greg Gutfeld

    LOVED IT !

    Amazes me that someone would take the time to write a negative review! I never miss The Five... and watch Red Eye when I can stay awake. In another life Greg was probably my son. Either you "get him" or you don't. Hes an expert at using sarcasm to point out the pathetic truth of the "tolerant" who are the most intolerant critters since man stood upright. The tolerant among us have no patience with anyone who disagrees with them..... and they are angry if you dare to have a different point of view. Makes me wonder if their need to be cool and "with it" supercedes common sense and at some level they know it , and know that we know they know it. Rather than admit it they use anger and labels to distance themselves from us.

    Greg makes some valid points

    Author points out how ridiculous liberal arguments are. They are so asinine that I do not see how people can support many of the things liberals say with a straight face. Because of this, the book is very funny and oh so true. Keep it up Greg because I think we all need to laugh and who better to laugh at than liberals who think they know it all.

    I am so fed up with conservatives pissing on liberals and liberals pissing on conservatives because your average good American gets lost. Neither side really cares about us although they pretend they do care. I am tired of the ideology spewed from the far right and left. We need more concern for the average American.

    Those who can't tolerate the truth whine about it. Greg's observations are spot on! You'll find yourself laughing out loud reading TJOH...unless you're a liberal. Or have no sense humor. Could be lacking in common sense too. Which would mean...oh never mind. You'd have to have to posses both to understand what he's saying in the first place. So you're probably not going to be reading this book. Shame. =) There's a whole lot more people out here thinking what he's saying. Read The Joy Of Hate. And laugh along the way finding out what and why! Thanks Greg!

    Tremendously funny book that sheds a light on all things hypocritical and hysterical about the modern Left. Gutfeld offers charmingly twisted and honest interpretations of today's phony outrage and the way Liberal America uses "tolerance" to bludgeon any form of debate. A must read if you're truly sick of today's mock- incredulity.

    I love Greg. He's awesome on the Five and amazing on the Red Eye. He has many common sense ideas and points out a lot of things that just cracks me up. I am ordering this book and love the reviews. :) If you want truth and no coddling I think Greg's book will be great.

    Really, someone who makes his living on phony outrage, like most

    Really, someone who makes his living on phony outrage, like most shows on Fox, has written a book complaining about it? You want the phony outrage of fake issues like the war on X-mas and accusation of "an apology tour" to stop? Cancel your show and you'll see a instant 10% reduction...but course you cant do that cause that's leaving money on the table of fear and misguidance.

    Fantastic

    One of the best books to come along in awhile. Greg Gutfeld addresses today's issues in a factual and humerous way. And I especially loved the fact that there is not one word that can be construed as that wimpy political correctness. Gutfeld seems to think like me- - the words "political correctness" are not in his dictionary.

    The book is awesome I have laughed my butt off on every page, and the book really hits home on the crazy tom foolery that goes on in this day in age. The "intolerance" that goes on now a days by those pointing the fingers at everyone and especially the media who are moon bat crazy is tiresome. Gut speaks the truth that will not be found on the main stream media nor anywhere else now a days. As we go into the second reign of Obama ... I will read this book over and over to maintain my sanity as more and more of my life gets dictated to me by the "Dear Leader: and his cult members who are ever ready to tell everyone else how to liver their life while their life is a steaming pile of feces....

    Falls short. The joy of hate would be to see the entire body of Congress get paid room and board and transportation
    While in session AND their salaries paid to our men in
    uniform for volunteering to get blown up, dying and being
    crippled,mentally and physically, so that we can keep our
    freedoms, our country's safety and free to elect a President
    who seems to hate America.

    That's my Joy of Hate!

    Greg Gutfeld is one of the rising stars on Fox News channel, and

    Greg Gutfeld is one of the rising stars on Fox News channel, and one of my favorite TV personalities overall. His edgy and snarky humor will appeal to anyone who has grown up with South Park and similar forms of irreverent humor that takes on some relevant current issue. He manages to weave social commentary with irreverent statement that titter on the edge of what can be said on primetime television. 




    In “The Joy of Hate” Gutfeld takes on the notion that the ultimate arbiter of validity of one’s arguments is whether or not it offends any particular group. We’ve come a long way away from the society where we are indeed free to speak our mind, and even the political correctness of recent years is starting to seem mild in comparison to all the “anti hate” rhetoric that we have today. Gutfeld walks us through his own political and ideological transformation in his early youth and explains where he comes from. He is unapologetically libertarian, and many of his more conservative fans will find some of his statements almost as objectionable as do his critics on the let. Nonetheless, it is refreshing and indeed fun to read Gutfeld’s prose and his unabashed criticism of various sacred cows. 




    I watch Gutfeld often on The Five, and while reading this book I could totally hear his voice in my head. The book is a fun and easy to read, but it is mostly preaching to the choir. It is unlikely to convert anyone who is already committed to the narrative of “hate” and the ways that it supposedly needs to be curtailed.

    You have to read this book!

    Greg Gutfeld's incites into the world of the "tolerati" will make you think, seethe and laugh your head off. It's a quick, witty read, filled with head-on collisions with issues dear to liberal hearts. Conservatives and moderates - anyone with with a working mind and a sense of humor, for that matter - will love it. Viva Gutfuld!
