Description
#1 "New York Times" bestselling author and radio and tv host Glenn Beck's ultimate handbook for tackling and winning life's most important arguments.
FUNNY. FRIGHTENING. TRUE.
The #1 "New York Times "bestseller that gives you the right answers when idiots leave you speechless
It happens to all of us: You re minding your own business, when some idiot* informs you that guns are evil, the Prius will save the planet, or the rich have to finally start paying their fair share of taxes.
"Just go away "you think to yourself but they only get more obnoxious. Your heart rate quickens. You start to sweat. But never fear, for Glenn Beck has stumbled upon the secret formula to winning arguments against people with big mouths and small minds: knowing the facts.
And this book is full of them.
The next time your Idiot Friends tell you how gun control prevents gun violence, you ll tell them all about England's handgun ban (see page 53). When they insist that we should copy the UK's health-care system, you ll recount the horrifying facts you read on page 244. And the next time you hear how produce prices will skyrocket without illegal workers, you ll have the perfect rebuttal (from page 139). Armed with the ultimate weapon the truth you can now tolerate (and who knows, maybe even "enjoy?") your encounters with idiots everywhere
*Idiots can t be identified through voting records; look instead for people who hide behind stereotypes, embrace partisanship, and believe that bumper sticker slogans are a substitute for common sense.
