“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

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 have always enjoyed his rants. Love you Rick!
-Good book with some interesting stories and notes
-Would be best for big fans of Mercer's humour (my dad likes him but is more of a silent and serious guy)
-Provides a funny and interesting outlook on Canada and our political landscape
-Lengthly enough to be engrossing without overwhelming
He enjoyed it enough that I was compelled to purchase one of Mercer's other books for him.
Although you can laugh yourself hoarse, you can also read some very interesting material that will make you think. And perhaps rant yourself.
