Funny, extreme, always provocative essays on the illusions and delusions of America's Imperial Age. There is something in this book to intrigue, amuse, inform, educate, annoy, or outrage just about anyone. Enjoy the spectacle and folly of the War on Drugs, the War on Terror, the War on Education, the War on Sick People, the War on Privacy, the War on Anonymity, the War on Common Sense, and the War in Iraq from the comfort of your barstool or Lay-Z-Boy. O'Boyle is challenging, entertaining and informative on topics you thought you had settled in you own mind. He abuses the shenanigans of politicians without party favoritism while making eye glazing subjects like inflation, licensing, and price controls, as fascinating as gold, guns and dope. You will also enjoy O'Boyle's forays into history ancient and recent. Romans, gods, crusaders, Civil War generals, presidents, slaves and swindlers decorate and illuminate his essays like fashion accessories on starlets. From unique, challenging political commentary to enlightening insights into money and markets to a satisfying reads about cultural and holiday history, there's something here for everyone.
