“Sure to be one of the year’s most entertaining political books.”
“The book does an admirable job balancing each party’s perspective…As stereotypical party associations and extremism boil down to a genuine concern for the future of America, the result is surprisingly heartfelt.”
The Advocate, July 2012
“[Michael Ian Black is] so cool we believe the publisher when they call it Chelsea Handler meets Hunter S. Thompson.”
“[McCain] uses the debates with Black to re-examine her relationship with the Republican Party. Along the way, a few political figures come under fire from the outspoken daughter of a former presidential candidate—including Clinton.”
“A serious (albeit comical) look at America’s people and politics…A highly funny and empathetic endeavor that will leave the reader with a better understanding of American politics…America, You Sexy Bitch proves that Republicans and Democrats can find common ground.”
“[Black] knows how to make you laugh; and yet, through his humor, he was able to convincingly communicate his liberal rationale with ease…Presents some interesting thoughts about politics and culture.”
Tucson Citizen, 7/3/12
“An enjoyable, often funny little travelogue…An entertaining bipartisan road trip diary.”

I was very intrigued by the concept of this book, but when I started listening to it, I still wasn't exactly sure what to expect. Overall, I was surprised in both good and bad ways. I found myself laughing out loud at certain parts. Rolling my eyes at some. Getting a little bit mad at others. I didn't love the section about strip clubs. I didn't love the section about Little Rock. But what I did love was the overall message of the book and the honest discussions that Michael and Meghan had about the most controversial topics that our country faces. While I found myself, for the most part, leaning towards Meghan's point of view, I did find Michael's interesting to hear about in greater detail. I didn't always agree or disagree with either one of them in particular and I found that interesting.Read more ›
Michael Ian Black, comedian, atheist, and East Coast liberal travels the country with Meagan McCain, super smart, funny and talented Christian Republican. Together they talk to Americans and try to figure out how we all got so screwed up.
Democrats and Republicans aren't the enemy. Bumper sticker politics and the extremist voices of the 24-Hour News Cycle are. This book is important - So it's a good thing it's freaking hilarious too.
I am 42 years old, and have been a "registered Democrat" since my 18th birthday, and have voted in every Presidential election. However, I've only voted for a Democrat once in that time. I've never really followed politics, nor have I ever given it [too] much thought. I followed it enough to be able to follow a conversation, but never considered myself as a member of a specific party.
I found this book purely by accident. I was a passenger in a car whose driver was listening to the Mac & Gaydos show on the radio and, as such, I had no control over which station we were listening to. They had just welcomed Meghan McCain on as a guest speaker, which she apparently does on a weekly basis. I knew nothing about her, other than that her father was the senator of the state in which I live. (Embarassing, but I already explained I don't follow politics.) After listening to her for a couple of minutes, I was intrigued enough to download a sample of 'America, You Sexy Bitch.'
I didn't realize until I found the book online that Michael Ian Black was even the co-auther. During her chat with Mac & Gaydos, Meghan McCain only referred to 'Michael.' I was pleasantly surprised that it was MIB, as I really enjoy his flat, cynnical humor. Needless to say, after reading the 24-page sample, I HAD to get the entire book!
I loved the format of it.Read more ›

Basically a diary. There are no interesting insights into American politics.Published 9 months ago by Avid Reader
Like Meghan McCain so thought I would enjoy the book but it was just a whiny book about two people who didn,'t know each other with different political views. Kind of boring. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Hawaii Shopper
This book was not very informative. Instead, it more-so a travel journal and less dialogue on American politics. Read morePublished on January 4, 2014 by Holy Conscious

Not an overwelming page turner but a fun read. I appreciate the journey and the struggle these two face to find common ground. I wish more folks would try to do that.Published on November 1, 2013 by Christiane Noll
