Same nature and format as _New Rules_ (2005), only newer and fatter. I think the most important thing about Maher may be his near-uniqueness as a public personality who acknowledges that all religions are nonsensical and harmful and that Islam is the worst of them. Cutting back on his use of profanity might win more readers over to his many valid points of view; his endless barrage of zingers would still be cutting, caustic, and comical.

As a huge fan of Bill Maher, I must say that this book was a little disappointing but still overall a good read. I say disappointing not that it was bad, I quite enjoy his humor, but as others have said some parts of the book are dated and no longer apply. Despite this, any intellectual should read this book and listen to/watch his standup or HBO show because it brings into perspective all of the things that are causing America to fall behind Europe and Asia in the hunt for global supremacy.

A print version of a monologue segment of his TV show, this second collection dates as far back as the end of the Bush II administration. His targets are largely political or cultural phenomenon, and while still very funny, parts of the book seem a little dated. Not all of the optimism shown ridiculing right-wing nut jobs has quite played out the way Maher (or the rest of the nation) had hoped. But there is still plenty of ammo which to ridicule and scorn conservatives, fundamentalists, and both. And for that, I must highly recommend the book. ( )

If you've ever watched Real Time with Bill Maher, then you are probably familiar with Bill Maher's segment toward the end of each show called New Rules. This book is a collection of New Rules, including both the short ones and some of the longer comedic essays.

Of course, with all things Bill Maher, you have to expect the politically charged brand of humor that he is quite famous for. This book does not disappoint. It is filled with that irreverent, yet informed style that he has become so famous and hated for. There are times when some might feel that he crosses a line, but it is never anything worse than what you could see weekly on his show. And he jokes about people on both sides of the political spectrum.

The book is arranged alphabetically by joke name, so it is easy to keep up with where exactly you are. Most of the names for the jokes give a pretty big clue about what it will be about. The essays are in order of when they appeared on the series, with the oldest ones coming in the front of the book. It is an extremely easy read and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who just is having one of those days when they need a laugh to get through the day. ( )
