Tears of laughter

I am 39 and I thought that at my age I was far too mature to enjoy juvenile political satire. How wrong I was. I started reading this book in the bookstore, and was pleased to find myself laughing and snickering uncontrollably. Sure many of the attacks are unfair and the situation exaggerated, but what else do you expect from a satire? It was still extremely well done and extremely funny. I am outside the U.S. and find it refreshing evidence of a vigorous political struggle going on within the world's superpower; and great to see some American humour which I can relate to, and which can make me laugh.

Funny and perceptive

This book is not only funny but a worryingly accurate portrayal of how those of us who live outside of America and her subversively censored media see your country's immediate future. Those reviewers who believe there are many facts that are `out-right lies' are unfortunately exactly the ones who are being attacked by this book. Yes there are exaggerations but please for the sake of every human being - think for yourselves, and don't be the sheep this book seeks to parody.

A lucid, hilarious view of modern-day politics

Very rarely does a novel capture/skewer the essence of contemporary American politics with the unabashed hilarity and intelligence that Citizen You! does. Between this novel and Fahrenheit 9/11, I finally feel that I can make an informed decision come November.Simply put, today's America NEEDS Citizen You!

Time to sit up and take notice.

This book has a great deal of humor, but the satire contains the frightening truth about what has happened to democracy in America. Intelligent, witty jokes about Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Ascroft and the rest are extremely entertaining, but every page holds evidence that the American people have not been adequately informed about the actions of their government, or the consequences those actions will have for us, our children, and who knows how many generations to come. This book reminds me of my responsibilities as a citizen, and I'm going to make sure everyone I know reads it, and I'm going to do my best to see that each and every one of them votes in November!

Great Satire!

This wonderful work compliments the deluge of Bush and Company books published in the past year. Facts are presented with biting satire to show us what we are up against in November. It appears an easy job (to sweep out the White House) but authors Loew, Garden and Ostrow take nothing for granted.
