After September 11, when Bill Maher offended easily-offended people with a widely (and in many cases, deliberately) misunderstood remark, Ari Fleischer said that people need to watch what they say and do. In this very funny but ultimately serious, provocative but truly patriotic book, Bill prescribes what Americans can do to defend our nation. And please put this blurb as far away from Ann Coulter's as possible. - Al Franken

Bill Maher has inherited the mantle of Mark Twain and Jonathan Swift and he wears it with aplomb. If he were living in any other time or in one of many other countries he would truly be in danger of being put to death for his legendary ability to say the unthinkable and say it better (and before) anyone else. When You Ride Alone You Ride with bin Laden is destined to be the most talked-about book of the year. - Larry King

Bill Maher rides alone daily but it is a hilarious, incisive trip. Maher versus bin Laden? Take Bill, give the points! - Bill O'Reilly

Bill Maher has the courage to speak his mind - no matter what the consequences - something you can't say about most people these days. And he's damn funny! Now, more than ever, the country needs his outrage. Agree or disagree with him, there is no question that what he has written in this book should be front and center in the great national debate and I, for one, am thrilled that this cantankerous s.o.b. is still there doing battle for the republic we all love. - Michael Moore

Bill Maher loves America, hates conventional thinking, and, despite his curmudgeonly image, has a heart of gold. In the war on terrorism, we could use a little less tolerance and sensitivity and a little more manly anger. In this book, Bill leads the way hilariously. - Ann Coulter Download and start listening now!

    " Agree with a lot, disagree with some, and I'm led to think about most of it. Great posters. Wish there was a way I could reproduce them from time to time and put them up here and there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darusha Wehm | 2/8/2014

    " While this is somewhat out of date now, most of the suggestions are excellent ones that people should be paying attention to, war or no war. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex Norcross | 1/25/2014

    " This book is a little dated, having been written after 9/11, but before the invasion of Iraq. Maher is spot on with his criticism of American consumerism, ignorance, and obsessions with things that don't matter. A lot of the things he discusses are problems that should be addressed and sadly still remain untouched and rarely examined by our leaders. Some of his arguments, however, are extremely biased and short-sighted. Maher writes that "Taking literally ancient parables from thousands of years ago is much more dangerous than playing with a loaded gun." No, its not. Maher's prejudices and arrogance, particularly in matters relating to religion versus rationality (two ideas that are not necessarily opposites), keeps him from making a holistic argument and realistic representation of the world. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz | 1/24/2014

    " This book has a neat premise - Maher takes World War II propaganda posters and updates them for the Iraq War. It started out all right, but then I realized that Maher didn't really go much past the surface of the issues that he was exploring. Although he makes a few good points, his analyses of the issues are pretty weak. The original posters are more interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Talmadge East | 1/21/2014

    " This is the second book of Maher's I have read, but unlike "New Rules," I really didn't enjoy this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Architeuthis | 1/9/2014

    " Funny a little of the time, serious a lot of the time, thought-provoking throughout, and very relevant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 1/9/2014

    " Very good book, I love when they're read by the author, it's delivered as it was intended. Although I don't agree with everything Bill Maher says in this book or otherwise, he makes some outstanding points and really knows what he's talking about. I strongly reccommend this to anyone into politics even in the slightest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 1/4/2014

    " He's certainly honest and upfront about his views. You can see why he'll never be elected to public office. He does NOT pander to popular public opinion at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 12/29/2013

    " Parts are funny, but honestly, Bill Maher hates women. I kind of want to hate him right back. He is terribly smart and clever and all that and I laugh at his jokes, but then I get to a part where I realize once again, he hates women... and any enjoyment is over for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nazish | 12/20/2013

    " Well, this shit takes about one hour to read. If you're in the mood for listening to 'New Rules' crap from an american who can not think out of his circle and perhaps doesn't realize there are people who don't follow his religion i.e. Americanism, you must definitely read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christie Seagren | 12/13/2013

    " I like Bill Maher, his opinions are generally well reasoned. Though this is a fairly old book it is still very relevant for 2012. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 12/5/2013

    " Much better than I expected, and quite even-handed. Maher gives liberals and conservatives alike a heavy dose of sarcastic yet well reasoned common sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill Littell | 10/21/2013

    " This book is full of refreshingly honest essays about the post-911 era, and its derivative artwork is really impressive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colin | 6/3/2013

    " Funny, self-serving, thought-provoking, smug... all this and more... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 lindz | 5/13/2013

    " This was one of his more boring books, IMHO. While always biting and sharp, this one wasn't as engaging or smartly written as his other ones. Still an unabashed Bill Maher fan, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Wong | 2/23/2013

    " Funny. Insightful. Mostly funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 11/14/2012

    " Some of the points are a little dated, and Bill Maher says some crazy stuff, but this book is overall a good read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julien V | 6/11/2012

    " The less is said about this piece of paranoid, islamophobic crap, the better. To think I sorta liked Bill Maher before - despite the douchiness and all the zionist apologetics. To add insult to injury, this pamphlet isn't even funny. Not once. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 5/31/2012

    " Different than what I expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 5/11/2012

    " Quite funny. Many good points for both sides of the politics spectrum. Not overly partisan. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mel | 5/5/2012

    " Ugh. Am I the only person who finds Bill Maher just a bit too smug? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom Landry | 3/11/2012

    " This book was a lot of common sense stuff. It seemed even handed politically for the most part. I'm sure everyone will find things to agree and disagree with. It was an interesting and sometimes thought provoking read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 2/21/2012

    " I'm a little late to this party, since it was written sometime in Bush's first term, but there's a lot here that we STILL don't do or pay attention to. Should be required reading for all Americans. I'd love to see an update. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 10/21/2011

    " Looks like a coffee table book, but is actually informative. Even if Bill Maher is a douche. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claudia | 8/20/2011

    " never got to finish it! but got the point. ? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arnab | 6/26/2011

    " Bill Maher was always the witty and honest political commentator. This book is reflective of that. Meant for the Americans, and not necessarily for the rest of the world, this can be quite an interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 12/11/2010

    " This book is full of refreshingly honest essays about the post-911 era, and its derivative artwork is really impressive. "

    " Quite funny. Many good points for both sides of the politics spectrum. Not overly partisan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 2/27/2009

    " Negatives: acerbic, bombastic, negative, anti-religion

    Positives: funny funny funny, truths about our self-indulgent culture, refreshingly politically independent

    3.5 stars. I Did the audiobook and it was fun listening the Maher do his own humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joette | 1/16/2009

    " Uses historical posters to make some modern points "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 1/15/2009

    " Much better than I expected, and quite even-handed. Maher gives liberals and conservatives alike a heavy dose of sarcastic yet well reasoned common sense. "
