"Eats, Shoots and Leaves" meets 'Meet the Press' in this hilarious follow-up to the "New York Times" bestselling book "Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar"...Politics is the Shangri-La of comedy. Tom Cathcart and Daniel Klein are in top form in this rollicking - and revealing - analysis of political doublespeak, flimflam and the alternate realities that exist only in the minds of our modern Machiavelli's. With humour as well as an insight or two from Aristotle and his peers, our two favourite philosopher comedians parse the language of our elected (and court-appointed) officials. Who else could analyze Bill Clinton's famous, 'It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is?'?In this endlessly entertaining romp through popular pronouncements, readers learn to unravel the circuitous claptrap of politicos ranging from Caesar to Condoleezza Rice, Genghis Khan to Al Sharpton. They'll learn to identify tricks such as the Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy (Non Causa Pro Causa) and the Fallacy Fallacy or Argumentum ad Logicam (because while it's best to actually understand what the president is trying to say, knowing the Latin name it for it comes a close second).

We based our evaluation of book condition on the following criteria:

New: Just like it sounds. A brand-new, unused, unread copy in perfect condition.

Like New: An apparently unread copy in perfect condition. Dust cover is intact; pages are clean and are not marred by notes or folds of any kind.

 * Very Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged.

 * Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include "From the library of" labels or previous owner inscriptions.

 * Acceptable: A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text.
