From description: In the spirit of his savagely funny and national best-seller Parliament of Whores, Give War a Chance is P. J. O'Rourke's number one New York Times best-selling follow-up. O'Rourke runs hilariously amok by tackling the death of Communism, sanctimonious liberals, and America's perennial bad guy Saddam Hussein in a series of classic dispatches from his coverage of the 1991 Gulf War. Here is our most mordant and unnervingly funny political satirist on: Kuwait City after the Gulf War: "It looked like all the worst rock bands in the world had stayed there at the same time." On Saddam Hussein, O'Rourke muses: "He's got chemical weapons filled with ... chemicals. Maybe he's got The Bomb. And missiles that can reach Riyadh, Tel Aviv, Spokane. Stock up on nonperishable foodstuffs. Grab those Diet Coke cans you were supposed to take to the recycling center and fill them up with home heating oil. Bury the Hummel figurines in the yard. We're all going to die. Details at eleven."

NOTE: This book was wild released on 4/3/07 in Washington D.C. on the National Mall, near the sculpture garden.

Journal Entry 2 by Laketop from Minneapolis, Minnesota USA on Wednesday, April 4, 2007
This writer is amazing so far. I have yet to read the entire thing, but I will read it and realease it at the airport, so it has a better chance to fly away far. So far, this book is hilarious, with biting self critisim to semi-veil and clear attacks on others. His writing style makes me feel as if there are still funny people out in the world, and I just wanted to say that this book is almost older than me! (Some of the reviews are!)
Anyway, this is a great expiremnet, and I expect myself to continue with other books!

Thanks Book Crossing! I got a great book out of this!
