Read Why We Don't Suck Online Free - From the author of the bestselling Why We Suck comes a searing comic look at these divisive times, skewering liberals and conservatives alike with a signature dose of sarcasm and common sense.
Denis Leary refutes the current highly partisan Right Wing Nutjob versus Left Wing Snowflake approach to American politics—where you’re either one or the other, with no gray areas in between. Leading a new protest movement called Gray Lives Matter, he takes equal opportunity aim at the screaming heads we see arguing every night on CNN (the Clinton News Network) and Fox’s Fair and Balanced Republican Report. With a devoted mission to Make America Laugh Again, Denis tackles the topics we all hold close to our American hearts: Twitter, Instagram, and the seemingly endless search for fame and diet vodka.
In a country so gluten-free that a box of jelly donuts is now a bigger threat than Vladimir Fucking Putin—where college kids are more afraid of Ann Coulter than HIV—it’s time for someone to stand up and stop the insanity. Or at least defend the double cheeseburger. With a side order of free porn. Denis is that guy.
He'll answer such burning questions as: when will Hillary run out of pantsuits? And why wasn't her campaign motto Hey America—It's My Fucking Turn! As Denis says in the book "Trump's election gave me faith that even I could be president. Look at his track record: canceled TV show, thin skin, angry tweets and an attractive wife. According to that formula, I'm one bad combover away from living in The White House." We're all in this together and Denis Leary is here to remind us what makes America #7 on the list of Best Countries To Live In—which may sound bad, but means at least we still make the playoffs.

Put on your cynical hat and you’re likely to laugh until you cry. If you’ve been following the American political and cultural wars, however, you’re likely to go straight to tears. For everyone else, which isn’t likely to be enough people to make a crowd, there will at least be some laughs.

I listened to the audio book of this, which was read by the author. It’s always wonderful to have the author as the narrator; it’s them telling their own story and it’s like sitting in a room with them while they tell it. While I didn’t agree with all of his statements, “Dr.” Leary cuts through m...

How, I asked myself when I started this hilarious book, is he going to keep up this bi-partisan banter for nearly 300 pages? Turns out he couldn't (or, at least, didn't). The first two sections were great (and the Tweets by historical figures was a lot of fun), but after that, it was Denis Leary...

I became a fan of Denis Leary through various programs on television, finding him to be a wonderful and funny actor. So I picked up this book by him and it’s more of the same. It’s very much the same, funny and sharp, warm and sarcastic all at once. I’m not a very political person but he nails mu...

Dr. Leary doesn't disappoint! I purchased the audio version of this book in preparation for a trip to Vegas. I'm a big fan of audiobooks while crammed into a bus with wings eating pretzels and drinking shot size Coke. It takes my mind off the always "larger than me guy" who inevitably sits next t...

I have been a fan of Dennis Leery since his MTV days, loved Rescue Me and have listened to other books by him. What makes the audio books so much better is that he narrates them, so you get the full experience.
I often found myself laughing while listening, my co-workers giving me strange looks. I...

This book was an immense disappointment to me in several ways. One, his first book was beyond hysterical. Denis managed to take everything society gets upset about and make it ridiculously funny. That bestselling book, "Why We Suck" had me laughing so hard at the ridiculous things society tends t...

I listened to the audiobook format, which in my opinion is the only way to listen to a memoir, especially one from a comedian. Denis Leary in particular has a delivery that I just can't mimic even inside my own head.
This book is hilarious and smart, too. Leary rips on everyone so don't take it pe...

I really like Denis Leary...but it was a bit too much doom over and over in this one. Not that things aren't the way he says but over and over, almost the same s****.

Did not actually finish. It started to get repetitious.
