We Really Suck
Dr. Denis Leary's Why We Suck: A Feel Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid was HIGH-LARIOUS! He holds absolutely nothing back in this tirade against the American people. What's even more funny is how spot on Leary is, merely saying what everyone else is too afraid to voice. I loved it! Leary touches on everything from politics, pop culture, religion, fashion, the differences between men and women, celebrities, and so on. Really there is no subject that is off limits. He even makes fun of himself, which is refreshing and shows the reader that he knows he's not exempt from the same judgement. Though it's a harder book to review than most, I would highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't take themselves too seriously. If you are easily offended, don't read this book. If, however, you are able to laugh at yourself and view the world with a critical eye, by all means, pick it up and enjoy!
