Publisher's Summary

Paul Krassner's style of personal journalism constantly blurs the line between observer and participant. Nowhere is this more apparent than this collection of essays and interviews culled from his columns at AVN Online. Whether being interviewed by Susie Bright, or imagining a conversation between Pee-Wee Herman and Pete Townshend about their busts by overzealous cops, or reminiscing about his friend Lenny Bruce, Krassner shines his keen satirical mind on the so-called taboos of today's society and breaks them down to show the hypocrisy of the world's "culture warriors". With a biting wit and tongue firmly planted in cheek, Mr. Krassner reveals the absurdity of our oppressive social mores in this stark, funny, and ultimately thought-provoking collection.

Politics show through in this book. Every male on earth is not a serial abuser, sorry. Not only that, it was tough to get through, very slow. I believe Owen probably wrote most of this book and his father put his name on it for Sales. It was disappointing at best. Narrator was terrible as well.

Hilarious and So True!

Have you listened to any of Max Trendelenberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, to my knowledge I haven't.In my Amazon review I tried to correct this - To no avail.I will certainly look into his past books!

Any additional comments?
Just listening, will hopefully update review.. Hilarious and true thus far & couldn't agree more with Krassner.

Tried to correct in Amazon review, to no avail.
