In this fourth installment of his acclaimed Rants series, bestselling author, Emmy Award-winning talk-show host, and wisecracking analyst for ABC's Monday Night Football Dennis Miller makes hamburger meat out of society's most sacred cows as only he can, with the kinds of allusions that require high SAT scores -- or at least a smart crib sheet. For instance, in ranting against bureaucrats, Miller notes, "They may bestride the rest of us like some kind of Cubicle Colossus bellowing, 'I am Ozymandias, Clerk of Clerks! Look on my Files, ye Mighty, and despair!' All ye who enter here."

Long before he became America's most-beloved, most-trusted, and most-heckled network football analyst, Miller was an expert commentator on another violent full-contact sport: American pop culture. His gridiron work is merely a sideline, a diversion from his life's mission: to flagellate the fat cats and to punish the puny-minded pundits.

This time around, Miller takes on child stars with rap sheets, women with bigger muscles than his own, herbs you don't smoke, God, and, yes, football. As always, nothing is out of bounds. And don't feel guilty for laughing -- these rants are actually good for you. (They provide your daily irony supplement.) Hilarious, sometimes angry, always insightful, The Rant Zone is Miller's most provocative book to date. With Dennis Miller calling the signals, the comedy always goes deep.
