New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer
by Bill Maher
In his latest Maher brings his brilliantly conceived riffs and rants to the written page. Appropriately titled New Rules, the book will collect some of the best of the rules derived from the segment on Maher's popular new HBO television show, Real Time and will also contain substantial new material, including some longer form "editorials" with a twist and bite that only Maher can deliver.

Confirmed Bachelor

The son of a retired nurse and an NBC news editor who grew up in River Vale, New Jersey, Maher has remained adamantly single. Friend and columnist Arianna Huffington told People magazine that she has tried to convince Maher to get married. She recalled, "we were at my home having a drink one night, and I said to him, 'Come and see my children asleep.' I took him up to my children's bedroom, and he looked at them and said, 'Oh, my God, they look like drunken sailors.' And I said, 'OK, I give up.'"
