From the New York Times bestselling author and host of HBO’s Real Time, here is Bill Maher’s latest collection of political riffs and savagely funny suggestions for preserving sanity in an insane world.

New Rule: The next Republican Convention must be held in a giant closet. Every week there’s a new gay Republican outed. I have a feeling that “big tent” they’re always talking about is in their pants. There are so many Republicans in the closet, their symbol shouldn’t be an elephant; it should be a moth.

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 news organization. Sort of like if you were on Dancing with the Stars last night, you’re no longer a star.

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, Bill Maher is an equal-opportunity destroyer. The New New Rules offers Maher’s 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’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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the establishment’s most entertaining critics.”

    New York Times

  • “Pundit Bill Maher courts controversy you say? He calls it telling the truth.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “This was everything I wanted in a book, especially from someone who is determined to be politically incorrect.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “His satire can be surprisingly humane, though he never misses the opportunity to pun, which makes every entry capable of surprise. The fearless and honest Maher remains the best cultural critic since George Carlin, and his most recent effort is as hilarious as it is precise.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Funny stuff for TV viewers with short attention spans.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A Publishers Weekly Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Linda Wickes | 2/20/2014

    " This is a funny,quick read. I recommend especially if you like his show. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Camille Smith | 2/19/2014

    " This book was first, let me say, very funny. It was a sort of amalgamation of a few of the "New Rules" segments from his previously aired episodes along with a few new ones. I watch the show so I've seen many of them and while they are still just as funny, I would suggest to someone who watches his show to bypass picking up this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Richard Thornley | 2/11/2014

    " Laugh out loud funny - but since Bill is a vaccine denialist - you don't have to believe everything he says is true. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by George | 1/22/2014

    " If George Carlin and Lenny Bruce had a child, that child would be Bill Maher. A truly wonderfully irreverent tour of the American (and World) landscape. Maher is a national treasure, who pulls no punches in addressing the hypocrisy of the modern political and religious landscape. I can't recommend this book strongly enough! "
