“As a regular watcher of the Rick Mercer Report, I was confident I would enjoy this book, being as it is a collection of most of the "rants" he does in the weekly TV show. I wasn't disappointed.
Rick Mercer is basically a Canadian treasure! He's smart, he's funny, he's obsessed with politics and he lives to call out stupid people doing stupid stuff for stupid reasons. He's even mostly polite while he does all that - like I said: a Canadian treasure!
Reading all the rants together, instead of just hearing one each week is a good reminder just how smart Rick actually is. He notices things the rest of us should, but usually don't, and he gives us - in the funniest possible way, so we actually remember and can do something about it - exactly the information about something that we need to talk about it, think about it and, hopefully get involved enough to DO SOMETHING about it!
Great fun read, even though if you watch the show regularly you've heard these before. The topics are important enough to bear repeating.”
