Comedian and commentator Bill Maher takes snippets from the commentaries from his HBO program and adds them to short vignettes about life in the modern United States and comes up with a very funny and occasionally thought provoking book. In the New Rules segment at the end of each television program, he adds humorous editorials on popular culture and American politics, and many of the more recent ones are included here. The order is alphabetical by topic rather than chronological by date, which can make things seem a little jumbled at times, but the book is more about satire than serious scholarship, so its no big deal. Maher skewers politicians from both sides of the political spectrum and also takes swipes at big business and fatcats of all stripes. While his pro-drug, anti-war statements may turn off people, his scathing wit is often laugh-out-loud funny, and should make this short book appealing to people who don't take themselves too seriously.
