Breitbart News had a very special opportunity to sit down with Greg for an exclusive, no-holds-barred interview where we were treated to a rare glimpse into the method and madness of the bestselling author’s creative process as well as insight into the themes explored in his upcoming release Not Cool.
We hope you have as much fun reading the interview as we had conducting it.
BN: Greg, tell us what inspired you to write this book?
Greg: It comes out on March 18.
BN: Excellent. How does this book differ from The Joy of Hate?
Greg: It differs mainly in the release date. This new one comes out March 18.
BN: Cool. What themes do you hit and how are they politically relevant?
Greg: Yeah… hmm… that’s tricky… If I had to pick a few, I’d say March 18.
BN: Alright, well this has been great. When is it available?
Greg: I’m not really sure.
BN: Thanks, Greg.
Greg: Thank you.
OFFICIAL BOOK COVER
Notes from the Publisher
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: The Hipster Elite and Their War on You, Greg Gutfeld, host of Red Eye and co-host 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 responsibilities 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.
Greg Gutfeld is the host of Red Eye on the Fox News Channel and author of the New York Times bestseller The Joy of Hate. He is also a co-host of the Fox News political talk show The Five. He blogs at The Daily Gut and is author of The Bible of Unspeakable Truths.
NOT COOL: The Hipster Elite and Their War on You is available for pre-order at Greg’s Official Site, Amazon, iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, and Indie Bound. The book will be published by Crown Forum, an imprint of Penguin Random House, Inc., on March 18, 2014.
