About the Author

Denis Leary has appeared in more than thirty films, including the Oscar-nominated Wag the Dog, The Thomas Crowne Affair and Ice Age, as well as the Christmas cult classic The Ref. Leary has also written for New York Magazine, GQ, Playboy, Esquire and many other publications. He is also the co-writer, creator and star of the four-time Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated TV series Resue Me.


Always outspoken (and so-called "Dr."), Denis Leary returns with this hilarious look at sucking; why we suck, how not to suck and how to help others who suck become suck free. Pulling no punches, Leary storms his way through everything from skinny jeans being for skinny people to vegetarians, and never fails to make listeners laugh out loud. Reading in his trademark self-deprecating and hard-nosed manner, Leary plows through his book at such a strong and commanding speed that listeners will think his well-polished rants are off-the-cuff. Leary is almost performing stand-up; his tone is so unrelenting and unabashed that listeners will beg for more. A Viking hardcover (Reviews, Sept. 15). (Nov.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Irreverent, no-nonsense actor/comedian Leary opines here on topics including politics, cultural icons, skinny jeans, and Irish Catholic family values. Narrating the book himself, Leary provides the right amounts of emphasis, indignation, and outrage at all the things he feels make people suck. The language is profane, vulgar, and raunchy in many-if not most-places, so listeners should be warned. Those not easily offended, however, will love this book, winner of Publishers Weekly's Listen Up Award. Highly recommended for all public libraries.
