Welcome to the world of Ann Coulter. With her monumental bestsellers Treason, Slander, and High Crimes and Misdemeanors, Coulter has become the most recognized and talked-about conservative intellectual in years—and certainly the most controversial. Now, in How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must), which is sure to ignite impassioned debate, she offers her most comprehensive analysis of the American political scene to date. With incisive reasoning, refreshing candor, and razor-sharp wit, she reveals just why liberals have got it so wrong.
In this powerful and entertaining book, which draws on her weekly columns, Coulter ranges far and wide. No subject is off-limits, and no comment is left unsaid. After all, she writes, “Nothing too extreme can be said about liberals because it’s all true.” How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) offers Coulter’s unvarnished take on:
•The essence of being a liberal: “The absolute conviction that there is one set of rules for you, and another, completely different set of rules for everyone else.”
•John Kerry: “A reporter asked Kerry, ‘Are you for or against gay marriage?’ As usual, his answer was, ‘Yes.’ ”
•Her 9/11 comments: “I am often asked if I still think we should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity. The answer is: Now more than ever!”
•The state of the Democratic Party: “Teddy Kennedy crawls out of Boston Harbor with a quart of Scotch in one pocket and a pair of pantyhose in the other, and Democrats hail him as their party’s spiritual leader.”
•Her philosophy for arguing with liberals: “Tough love, except I don’t love them. My ‘tough love’ approach is much like the Democrats’ ‘middle-class tax cuts’—everything but the last word.”
•The “Treason Lobby”: “Want to make liberals angry? Defend the United States.”
In this full-on Coulterpalooza, you’ll find the real, uncensored Ann Coulter. A special concluding chapter even includes the pieces that squeamish editors refused to publish—“what you could have read if you lived in a free country,” says Coulter. How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) is a stunning reminder of why Ann Coulter’s commentary has achieved must-read status.

Author, Lawyer, Political Commentator, are just a few of the titles held by Ann Coulter. She was born in New York City, New York in 1961. She likes to say that she knew she was a Conservative since attending Kindergarten. Her parents were staunch Republicans and brought up their daughter and two sons in a very Conservative household. While other children were reading fairy tales, Ann was reading books like The Conscience of a Conservative by Barry Goldwater.
Ann had the privilege of having varying experiences, such as visiting her older brother in New York City, after her parents had moved to Connecticut. He had her read books on Conservatism, then quizzed her on them. If she passed the quiz, he took her bar hopping with his friends. She was 14 years old at the time.
Ann attended Cornell University where she helped found The Cornell Review......she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in history, and received her Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School, and was editor of the Michigan Law Review. She was also President of the local chapter of the Federalist Society. She later served as a law clerk on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The highlight of her career though has been publishing twelve books that have been on the New York Times best seller list. Her public appearances include television and radio talk shows, and talking on college campuses. She speaks about modern Conservatism, and the hypocrisy of modern American Liberalism. Her books include: In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome; Adios America-Never Trust a Liberal Over Three; How to Talk to a Liberal-If You Must; Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton, and several others.
