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 of 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 it 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 together on 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.

Although this book was published in 2005, it's amazing how many of Bill Maher's observations still ring true. Only the names of the politicians and the technology has changed. His skill at pointing out America's hypocrisies and foibles has kept him a household name for years. As Bill says, "Why would you put a McDonald's in a hospital?"
