There's good news for those that rage at the evening news, shake their heads at Washington's business-as-usual, or watch as politicians carom from social crisis to political crisis to economic crisis: Dennis Miller is back, and he means to shake the nation by its lapels.

Miller respects no boundaries. Whether the subject is dope-addled baseball players who can no longer swing their bats, do-nothing politicians who devote their careers to creating meaningful sound bites, or the nation's resigned acceptance of violence as a way of American life, these thematically arranged monologues are funny and angry. More significantly, they shatter the conventions of comedy by simultaneously making us laugh, think, and seethe.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenn Mondry | 2/13/2014

    " I can't get enough of Dennis Miller. I loved this book and all the other rant books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kacie | 2/12/2014

    " I was always a big fan of Dennis Miller's show and looked forward to the rant every week. I still laughed reading through all of these but was a bit disappointed to find that they were all rants he had done on the show - nothing new. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd Beauregard | 2/9/2014

    " In the spirit of full disclosure, I'm a huge Dennis Miller fan. The transcripts from his famous "rants" contained in this book require that you have both a thesaurus at-hand and a healthy knowledge of pop culture or Dennis' snarkiness will make a whooshing noise as it travels over your head at the speed of light and splatters on the wall behind you. I could do with the f-bomb leitmotif but that is what my filter is for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Troy | 2/2/2014

    " Pre-GOP Dennis Miller is pretty hard to beat. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stacey | 1/27/2014

    " I like Dennis Miller. I think that he is very funny in a smart kind of way. The tirades that he goes on are near genius, and I agree alot with what he says. My issues with this particular book was how he said it. I listened to the audio version of this book, and found myself distinctly uncomfortable with his liberal use of the "f" word. When reading a book with a sprinkling of this word can be somewhat overlooked, but hearing it spoken loudly and frequently I just couldn't overlook it. I felt that I was being repeatedly slapped in the face. I did not finish the book, and will not read the others in this series. I didn't mean to get off on a rant, and "this is just my opinion, I could be wrong!" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 1/20/2014

    " one-liners galore..."in my way of thinking, neighbors are like hair plugs, the less you notice them, the better." :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 1/19/2014

    " "Voting nowadays is like choosing between the 2 a.m. showing of Beastmaster on Showtime and the 2 a.m. showing of Beastmaster 2 on Cinemax." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timothy | 1/11/2014

    " Huge Dennis Miller fan both when he was a liberal and now as a conservative. Spoiler he was a liberal when he wrote this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill Carney | 1/10/2014

    " Ah good ol' Denny in his prime. Before MNF, before joining the dark side, before becoming about as relevant as Milli Vanilli. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Randy Lander | 1/6/2014

    " I liked Miller when he was on SNL and when he had his own HBO show... not so much now that he's a commercial-filming conservative sellout. I haven't gone back and read these in a few years, so I'm not sure if I still like them or not. But I found them funny at the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Tuggle | 12/27/2013

    " Genius. Better as standup, but still genius. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 11/16/2013

    " before he went to the dark side "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 angrykitty | 11/14/2013

    " i used to like dennis miller a lot. now though, i think he's just a crank. the thing is, i think that he's probably always just been a crank....you watch an old snl and tell me different.....plus, he's waaaaaaay too smug with himself... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua Embrey | 11/13/2013

    " Classic Miller! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Atchisson | 11/5/2013

    " Miller rocks! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 stephanie | 11/3/2013

    " shut up, dennis miller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott Martin | 6/30/2013

    " Audiobook: Good humor from Dennis Miller...back when he did well enough on his own (before he was mostly known as a regular guest of Bill O'Reilly) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisa | 6/29/2013

    " I friend of mine gave this to me when we were in college and I about pissed myself laughing. Yes, the rants that are in this book, at the time were what was going on.. and were spot on from what I remember. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 6/15/2013

    " I listened to this book on tape and found it to be a nostaligic trip through the 90's. He uses words like Beeper and Clinton like we now use Iphone and Obama. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandie | 4/30/2013

    " I love Dennis Miller and his rants. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 4/26/2013

    " Funny book. I first heard this book in a college English class. It was funny and seemed like something that would be a good read. It makes you think about your own views on politics and the world we live in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gracula | 4/20/2013

    " Back when he was funny "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin | 1/26/2013

    " book was good; however due to his career changes since writing the book and increase in general pussy behavior I am taking away a star... sorry Dennis you're moving down to a "2" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/26/2012

    " He's funny! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 9/21/2012

    " Funny, but less like a book and more like a script for a stand-up routine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 NumberLord | 9/16/2012

    " I love Miller's rants. These are collected from his HBO show Dennis Miller Live. And they're funny--IF you like Dennis and his "referencia obscura" schtick. If not, then this book is probably not for you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 5/5/2012
