Expanded and Updated and More Furiously Funny Than Ever
From Canada's sharpest satirist: a massive eruption of
rants-updated to include all of Season 10 of the Rick Mercer
Report-plus brilliant essays, three of which were written
especially for this book. Illustrated throughout with photos
from Rick's encounters and exploits across Canada.
"A self-described 'rantaholic,' Rick Mercer is our country's
best-known and most-loved satirist. . . . But once again, beneath
his humour, Mercer is seething. You can't read Mercer's rants
without appreciating that we live in a society where
ranting-whether it's about our government, attitudes toward
sexuality, or escalators-is possible. And that, kids, is a good
thing." -Calgary Herald
"[A Nation Worth Ranting About] will make you laugh
out loud repeatedly. . . . Thank goodness Rick Mercer is around."
-The Chronicle Herald
"A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They
always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for
example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times,
I am just severely annoyed-it's an important distinction."
-Rick Mercer, from his introduction
