9780060099411: Why We Rule! 101 Great Reasons to Love Our Country

Plymouth Rock meets Kid Rock in Why We Rule! an irreverent and unabashedly patriotic celebration of the United States of America. Inspiring, educational, and almost as much fun as getting high and watching TV!

Why do we love our country so much? We're the home of the free, the land of the brave, and the wacky inventors of everything from toilet paper to People magazine. Join us as we take one giant leap for mankind with lists, stats, and facts on:

  • Rock 'n' Roll
    From Elvis to Britney...the lindy hop to hip-hop!

  • Hollywood
    The best flicks, from Jaws to Deep Throat!

  • Inventions
    The internet, martinis, and the slinky!

  • Medicine
    Pioneers in kidney transplants and breast implants!

  • Eats
    Home of hot apple pie, and hot pizza delivered in thirty minutes or less!

  • Sexy Chicks
    From Angelina Jolie to the Statue of Liberty!

  • #1
    In Nobel prizes, Olympic gold medals, and worldwide production of salt!

If that's not enough, how about celebrating our entrepreneurial spirit, landing on the moon, hot-and-cold running showers, big national monuments, and oh, yeah...a little thing called freedom.

About the Author:

Hailing from the San Fernando Valley, this all-star catcher for Sunrise Little League was raised on hot dogs and apple pie, and always stands up for the national anthem at ball games. Rob attended UC Santa Barbara, where he majored in Religious Studies and would have gotten a Ph.D. in the field had he not found something else to do. He created and published Caffeine, an alternative arts magazine, and edited the Caffeine anthology, Scream When You Burn (Incommunicado). He's designed over 80 CD covers for bands you've never heard of, and has designed & written games for Mattel, including the "Men Are From Mars" game. Rob currently lives in Hollywood with his wife Christine, where he writes books and designs box art for Backyard Wrestling videos.

This former Cub Scout, Little Leaguer and Valley Boy is a devout fan of mac & cheese, and received an "A" in U.S. History in high school. After graduating from UC Berkeley, where he studied nothing in particular, David created and edited the hardcore hip-hop magazine, Rap Sheet, where he interviewed and was threatened by some of the nation's leading rappers. Currently residing in Venice, CA, he pays his bills by writing trite yet award-winning ad copy, and by contributing to various music and entertainment magazines, including Hollywood Reporter, LA New Times and a bunch of web sites that just went out of business. David also writes brilliantly witty books with Rob, and watches a lot of Backyard Wrestling videos.
