Description

No one has a gift for telling it like it is like Bill Maher. And nowhere does he do it more hilariously than in the hugely popular 'New Rules' segment of HBO's Real Time . Media, celebrity, Democrats, Republicans, religion, children, marine life, electronics, that couple making out in the next booth - when it comes to lighting up his targets, Maher is an equal-opportunity destroyer. Now, from the New York Times -bestselling author and comedian, comes The New New Rules , a collection of Maher's both new and best-loved observations about the world around us, along with some modest tips for its improvement. Because wouldn't life be a little better if the inside of the office microwave didn't look like a Jackson Pollock painting, or if fathers stopped signing up their nine-year-olds to win free hunting trips? Scathingly funny and relentlessly unafraid of sensitive topics, Maher offers hundreds of New Rules and essays with his patented take-no prisoners irreverence - 'New Rule- If one of your news organization's headlines is about who got kicked off Dancing with the Stars last night, you're no longer a star.' With the 2012 elections looming and a political climate increasingly influenced by weird and wacky real-life characters - it was to Maher that Christine O'Donnell confessed she 'dabbled into witchcraft' - Bill Maher's hilarious brand of realism is more welcome and necessary than ever. So sit back, read on, and enjoy. You may not agree with all his views, but one thing's for certain- if you're listening, you're laughing.
