In this fourth installment of his acclaimed Rants series, bestselling author, Emmy Award-winning talk-show host, and wisecracking analyst for ABC's Monday Night Football Dennis Miller makes hamburger meat out of society's most sacred cows as only he can, with the kinds of allusions that require high SAT scores -- or at least a smart crib sheet. For instance, in ranting against bureaucrats, Miller notes, "They may bestride the rest of us like some kind of Cubicle Colossus bellowing, 'I am Ozymandias, Clerk of Clerks! Look on my Files, ye Mighty, and despair!' All ye who enter here."
Long before he became America's most-beloved, most-trusted, and most-heckled network football analyst, Miller was an expert commentator on another violent full-contact sport: American pop culture. His gridiron work is merely a sideline, a diversion from his life's mission: to flagellate the fat cats and to punish the puny-minded pundits.
This time around, Miller takes on child stars with rap sheets, women with bigger muscles than his own, herbs you don't smoke, God, and, yes, football. As always, nothing is out of bounds. And don't feel guilty for laughing -- these rants are actually good for you. (They provide your daily irony supplement.) Hilarious, sometimes angry, always insightful, The Rant Zone is Miller's most provocative book to date. With Dennis Miller calling the signals, the comedy always goes deep.

Dennis Miller was the host of his own five-time Emmy® Award-winning talk show Dennis Miller Live. He is currently host and executive producer of Dennis Miller on CNBC.From AudioFile:
If you've seen Dennis Miller on "Monday Night Football" telecasts or his own cable program, you know what you're in for here--sarcastic, profane, comic essays on the contemporary scene. To Miller, the world is a stupid place filled with stupid creatures. Only he and his audience have any sense. Like many other stand-up comedians who have turned to audiobooks, he suffers without a live audience, tending to rush a bit and play at one aggressive level. Consequently, for full enjoyment, the listener is advised to listen in short spurts. Y.R. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
