Bill Maher first came to national attention as the host of the hit Comedy Central and ABC-TV program Politically Incorrect, where he offered a combustible mixture of irreverence and acerbic humor that helped him to garner a loyal following, as well as a reputation for being a hilarious provocateur.

Now, his popular new HBO television show, Real Time with Bill Maher, has put him more front and center than ever. In particular, one of the show's segments entitled New Rules has struck a chord with viewers. It's within his rules that Maher takes serious aim, bringing all his incisiveness, wit, and his signature exasperation to bear on topics ranging from cell phones (I don't need my cell phone to take pictures or access the Internet. I just need to make a phone call. From everywhere! Not just the places it likes!) to fast food (New Rule: No more McDonald's in hospitals. I'm not kidding!) to the conservative agenda (Stop claiming it's an agenda. It's not an agenda. It's a random collection of laws that your corporate donors paid you to pass.), Maher brings these brilliantly conceived riffs to audio for the first time, along with some singularly Maher-ian editorials, editorials nothing like the standard fare found on the pages of the local newspaper!

    " This was awful! I love a good comedian's story, this is NOT one of them. I thought I was a fan of Bill Maher, not anymore. I couldn't get through it...not even after trying in several places. "

    " New Rules works as a segment on Maher's television show but not lumped into a book or audio format with nothing else. Constant "new rule" after "new rule" became tiresome and the tone of the book was rather bitter overall. So instead of being funny, as it is on TV, it was a mad rant from an angry guy who constantly uttered "new rule". Plus, these "new rules" are largely dated and greatly impacted my enjoyment. Overall, if you're looking to have a good mood ruined this may work! I do not recommend it while online shopping, it makes finding a deal that much more unbearable. "

    " I'm a huge Maher fan and find him one of the most truthful and more importantly logical pundit in the media. Unforutnatly his humor can turn many away which is a shame. People need to be less offended when searhing for truth. In any case this book is nothing more than a compilation of New Rules from his show. Nothing new in the book at all. Pretty lame. "

    " The beginning had me laughing out loud, but as the book continued, it just didn't hold me like I hoped it would. That being said, while I don't agree with everything Bill says, I think he has a common sense about his views. "
