Don't miss more rants.

"Piercingly funny." (People)
Although the content is fairly witty, the book is read in a completely unengaging way. I kept thinking it would be a funny book to read, but listening to it was at times painful. The tone is flat but not deadpan; it is clear the material is being READ, not performed (which a comedy book must be in order to be effective). I thought it was a waste of money
I was a regular watcher of Dennis' show over the years and came to look forward to his rants. For me, however, it's different listening to them back-to-back-to-back. For the most part, each rant is funny. Several taken collectively during a commute is just too much. I got bored listening to them.
Dennis Miller has lost touch and this book must been the beginning of his downfall. Its simply not funny. I was hoping for a couple of laughs and got maybe 3; I was looking for insights and got none. Don't waste your time. There's a reason he's not on TV anymore; he has nothing original to say.
Not everyone likes Dennis Miller, but then again not everybody understands much of what comes out of his mouth, as if you need a Masters Degree in arcane literature. For example, he makes reference to "Fitzcuraldo the boat over the mountain" (spelling?). Nevertheless, his piercing wit is sidesplitting and the rants are especially so because these are the creme of his loquatious crop. Buy it, you'll like it.

Funny, clever and witty, though at times Miller could be a little too witty for his own good. Even still, I enjoyed this listen, Miller does a great job in narrating his own material, making it just like one of his stand-up gigs, and overall, if you're a fan of comedy then this would audio book would be perfect for you.
I enjoyed this. A little obsessed with Bill Gates for some reason. "F" bombs sometimes seem unnecessary and out of place
Miller, the "smart" comedian who alludes, to the astonishment of another reviewer, to Werner Herzog, appeals to the same self-satisfied Thinking People who gather by his friend and fellow NFL commentator Rush Limbaugh's side. At least Miller has stopped trying to make his rants seem unpolitical--two stars for honesty.
This is a must hear! You'll love Miller's insight - no matter which side of the political isle you're on. Get it, listen to it and laugh!
Dennis Miller has always tickled my funny bone. Regardless if you agree with his political or social positions, you have to laugh at the way he presents his unique brand of sarcasm. Some people simply don't get his humor, but he is truly one of the sarcasm comedy masters of our time.
unless you like to hear a comic telling bad jokes and then laughing at them--since nobody else does--don't bother.
