The hilarious and controversial host of HBOs Real Time with Bill Maher has written his funniest, most opinionated, and most necessary book evera brilliantly astute and acerbically funny vivisection of American life, politics, and culture. Some of the smartest commentary about whats happening in America is coming from a comedianthis comedian being Bill Maher. If you want to understand whats wrong with this country, it turns out that one of the best informed and most thought-provoking analysts is this very funny pothead. The book was inspired by the editorial Bill delivers at the end of each episode of Real Time. These editorials are direct-to-camera sermons about culture, politics, and whats happening in the world. To put this book together, Maher reviewed more than a decade of his editorials, rewriting, reimagining, and updating them, and adding new material to speak exactly to the moment were in. Free speech, cops, drugs, race, religion, the generations, cancel culture, the parties, the media, show biz, romance, healthMaher covers it all. The result is a hugely entertaining work of commentary about American culture in the tradition of Mark Twain, Will Rogers, and H. L. Mencken.

Recensioner i media

"For fans, the book is a welcome reminder of Mahers funniness, his intelligence, his sanity....Mahers observations are often as cutting as theyre well-written [and] come from a place of wit and education and work well bundled together as a book."New York Post "Mahers style...is funny but not hyperbolic, challenging but not confrontational, and urgent but not in your face. That formula has served Maher well throughout his career, and it serves him well in this book."Booklist "His wittiest and most incisive book yet...he writes sharp critiques on American life, politics, and culture. From covering free speech and cancel culture to race and religion, Maher manages to dissect the most controversial of topics in a way that is both funny and digestible."Air Mail The least boring book Ive ever read.John Cleese This book is so funny you may not notice how smart it is. The only thing that will make you want to put it down is to take a moment to tell someone else about it.Donna Brazile I love Bill Maher. Hes often brilliant, occasionally maddening but unfailingly original. Hes the unfiltered, hilarious voice we desperately need during these batshit-crazy times.Katie Couric Whether you agree or disagree with himand I do bothBill Maher had proven himself to be an illuminating force in a world that values heat over light. His is a vital voice, keeping the left honest and calling the right to account for itself before the bar of reason and of decency. Id say thank God for Bill, but he doesnt believe in God. So Ill just say thanks.Jon Meacham
