"After September 11, when Bill Maher offended easily-offended people with a widely (and in many cases, deliberately) misunderstood remark, Ari Fleischer said that people need to watch what they say and do. In this very funny but ultimately serious, provocative but truly patriotic book, Bill prescribes what Americans can do to defend our nation. And please put this blurb as far away from Ann Coulter's as possible." - Al Franken
"Bill Maher has inherited the mantle of Mark Twain and Jonathan Swift and he wears it with aplomb. If he were living in any other time or in one of many other countries he would truly be in danger of being put to death for his legendary ability to say the unthinkable and say it better (and before) anyone else. When You Ride Alone You Ride with bin Laden is destined to be the most talked-about book of the year." - Larry King
"Bill Maher rides alone daily but it is a hilarious, incisive trip. Maher versus bin Laden? Take Bill, give the points!" - Bill O'Reilly
"Bill Maher has the courage to speak his mind - no matter what the consequences - something you can't say about most people these days. And he's damn funny! Now, more than ever, the country needs his outrage. Agree or disagree with him, there is no question that what he has written in this book should be front and center in the great national debate and I, for one, am thrilled that this cantankerous s.o.b. is still there doing battle for the republic we all love." - Michael Moore
"Bill Maher loves America, hates conventional thinking, and, despite his curmudgeonly image, has a heart of gold. In the war on terrorism, we could use a little less tolerance and sensitivity and a little more manly anger. In this book, Bill leads the way hilariously." - Ann Coulter

Passionate and Funny
After listening to Bill Maher's New Rules, I thought he was okay, so I gave this audiobook a try. In short, this is a big, big improvement over New Rules. Here, Bill Maher is obviously deeply invested in what he's saying, yet finds a way to make it funny. I still don't agree with everything he has to say, but that's all right. It's just so refreshing to hear someone speak boldly and honestly about what he sees as serious flaws in a country he loves and what can and should be done to fix those flaws. And all this with comedic flair. I'm really glad I gave this audiobook a spin.
If Only They Could Hear This...
This book was, all in all, not as funny as it was truthful. Maher makes a point of pointing out a good number of things that the government probably should have considered after 9/11 and yet, never will. Sure, I laughed, he has a way of making the truth funny, even when the truth is a bit disturbing.
Hilarious and Sad at the same time
Only a man like Bill Maher could point out all the things that are horribly wrong with America while making us laugh about it at the same time. Listen to him. This audiobook is extremely funny, but it will make you think too.
