Abstract:

Bill Maher is on the forefront of the new wave of comedians who have begun to influence and shape political debate through their comedy. He is best known not just for being funny, but for advocating truth over sensitivity and taking on the political establishment. Maher's combustible mixture of irreverence and acerbic humor has garnered a loyal following and 18 Emmy nominations, as well as a reputation for being a controversial bad boy. His HBO television show, Real Time, has put Maher more front and center than ever before. Particularly one regular segment, entitled "New Rules," during which Maher takes serious aim, bringing all of his intelligence, incisiveness, wit, and his signature exasperation to bear on topics ranging from cell phones to fast food to the conservative agenda. His new book brings these riffs and rants to the written page.--From publisher description.
