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

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Nation Worth Ranting About This is a must read for every Canadian.  Rick's rants in print are every bit as compelling as they are on TV - pertinent, factual, impactful and dialgue-provoking. Underscored by a passion that is inspiring and courageous, they provide an enlightened perspective on major issues.  More importantly, they create awareness of little known events and changes that are at the very heart of what we cherish as being truly Canadian.  Rick Mercer is a national treasure and this book is a Canadian gem.
