Dan Geddes' satirical creation, America's Most Critical Book, lives up to its title.From the opening satire, "The Seven Habits of Highly Efficient Cult Leaders," to the final collection of short prose you are challenged to use your gray matter to ponder the illusions we are fond of living in.For those who enjoy the thrill of "getting" the humor and revel in being in tune with the inside joke, this book is for you.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.I hate to classify this as comedy but I don't want to add another shelf for this one book. It would clearly fall under humor but it is much more than just a humorous book. It is a high-brow Mad Magazine. It deals with social issues, political issues, religious issues and can't we just say itfe. It is dripping with sarcasm and no one is off limits to its attacks. My favorite article was about turning America's shopping malls into pris [...]
Volume 1 of this collection from The Satirist website manages in just several scores of pages to poke fun at cults, political parties, conspiracy theories, and Disney. Geddes is versatile in his satire, with formats ranging from essays to fictitious movie reviews and obituaries. There's even a self-help quiz.

Absolutely hilarious. I can't wait to show it to the "smart***" in my life!
I received the book for free through first reads.This book is crazy off the wall funny stuff. A must read for anyone with a sense of humor.
Very funny, and very, very witty. This is a definite must for those who don't mind making fun of America.
