Troublemaker P.J. O'Rourke pokes and prods at everything that makes up this crazy world. I enjoyed this book.

Hillarious! O'Rourke is a magician with wit and sarcasm. Edgy take on the anxieties of modern America.

Keep in mind this is not politically correct, nor seeks to say things to make people happy and you'll enjoy this off the wall writer.

highly entertaining... I loved O'Rourke's dry wit and his analogies are hysterical...

This is a very funny book by a very funny man. He takes a rather acid approach to the problems that plague us, or seem to plague us. Easy read, light and funny. Keep your sense of humor intact however, if conservative types annoy you.

Well, he goes to some interesting places and has some interesting insights. However, he seems to think that everyone is stupider than he is.

This is a paperback, not hardback edition.
I found that O'Rourke does a good job of making complicated issues understandable and funny.
