To conservatives he’s written off because he is a comedian. To the dull he is just plain long winded and doesn’t look the part, so it must be a bunch of B.S. Though he has had written a few books, I’ve only read his latest one Revolution, which seems like a departure from the previous works.
If you have any grey matter upstairs it is hard to write off the man. His ideas–which he admits are not original–seem fresh with his unique voice. What’s more important is he is a perfect vehicle to deliver his messages to younger/more open audiences. Finally, he is funny.
