O'Rourke has three times achieved bestsellerdom with his satirical observations from the conservative perspective; here he collects 25 years of his writing, starting when he was, yes, a leftist-revolutionary wannabe. Then writing for the "underground" press, O'Rourke did the drugs-sex-and-rock-and-roll scene and survived to make fun of it today. Also included in the collection are pieces written for Rolling Stone and National Lampoon and a selection for Automobile and Car & Driver featuring some of the funniest (mostly) nonpolitical of his writing. Public library patrons, and even ex-hippies who appreciate political satire, will very much enjoy this.
