P.J. O'Rourke's scathingly funny guided tour of the workings of the U.S. government is uniquely suited to the audio format. O'Rourke's first-person essay is written in the style of a conservative intellectual's stand-up comedy routine and is acerbically captured by reader Christopher Hurt. Hurt drolly translates O'Rourke's marvelously funny diatribe against government wastefulness into verbal delight. Early in this timely and provocative work the listener begins to believe O'Rourke himself is teasing us with his radical Republicanism. This book is easy to digest in small, medium or large doses without losing track, making it perfect for commutes. C.T. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 92]
