NATIONAL BESTSELLER
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

Editorial Reviews

"A self-described 'rantaholic,' Rick Mercer is our country's best-known and most-loved satirist. . . . The use of surprise or the unexpected is a trademark of Mercer's humour. . . . 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."
-The Calgary Herald
