Product Description

Review

“A self-described ‘rantaholic,’ Rick Mercer is our country’s best-known and most-loved satirist. . . . The use of surprise or the unexpected is a trademark of Mercer’s humour. . . . But once again, beneath his humour, Mercer is seething. . . . You can’t read Mercer’s rants without appreciating that we live in a society where ranting — whether it’s about our government, attitudes toward sexuality, or escalators — is possible. And that, kids, is a good thing.”
The Calgary Herald

About the Author

Rick Mercer co-created and performed on This Hour Has 22 Minutes, created and starred in Made in Canada, and created and starred in Talking to Americans, the most-watched comedy special in Canadian TV history. He is now host of the hugely successful Rick Mercer Report

How can you not love these rants. It's Rick Mercer and no one does it better! Also a great table book,as the rants only take a few minutes to read.

Nobody can rant like Rick.
He doesn't take sides, but tells it like he sees it.
He would liven up the House of Parliament if he were an PM.

I love Rick Mercer and love his rants. This book is just all around awesome! I could literally hear him in every rant. Although I have heard all these rants, I like how he goes in depth for some of them, explaining things from the show and his life. A proud Canadian he is, and I love everything about him. Can't wait for the next book!

This book was really a collection of short stories summarizing various episodes of the Rick Mercer Report. An interesting light read providing Rick's insights into various current events. Very enjoyable.

Among other things, I purchased this book for my boyfriend for Christmas. He had finished reading it by Christmas evening and has recommended it to everyone in his family.

Rick Mercer is both the funniest and the most serious observer of Canadian politics.
Americans should avoid this book --- it might cause gastric distress!!
