In a time of chaos, the #1 New York Timesâ€“bestselling political humorist asks his fellow Americans to take it down a notch.
Is there an upside to being woke (and unable to get back to sleep)? If we license dentists, why donâ€™t we license politicians? Is your juicer sending fake news to your FitBit about whatâ€™s in your refrigerator?
The legendary P. J. Oâ€™Rourke addresses these questions and more in this hilarious new collection of essays about our nationâ€™s propensity for anger and perplexity, which includes such gems as â€śAn Inaugural Address Iâ€™d Like to Hearâ€ť (Ask not what your country can do for you, ask how I can get the hell out of here) and â€śSympathy vs. Empathy,â€ť which contemplates whether itâ€™s better to hold peopleâ€™s hands or bust into their heads. Also included is a handy quiz to find out where you stand on the Coastals-vs.-Heartlanders spectrum. From the author of Parliament of Whores, None of My Business, and other modern classics, this is a smart look at the current state of these United States, and a plea to everyone to take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy a few good laughs.
â€śTo say that P. J. Oâ€™Rourke is funny is like saying the Rocky Mountains are scenicâ€”accurate but insufficient.â€ť â€”Chicago Tribune
