About the Author

Michael Savage continues to soar as the No. 1 New York Times author of the The Savage Nation, The Enemy Within, and Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder. His program, The Michael Savage Show, airs on four hundred radio stations coast to coast (including WOR in New York and KNEW in San Francisco) and enjoys ten million weekly listeners, the nation's third largest talk radio audience. A man of the people, Savage has labored as a factory worker, teacher, social worker, medicinal plant explorer, and biologist, earning master's degrees in both medical botany and medical anthropology and a Ph.D. in epidemiology and nutrition science from the University of California at Berkeley. He is the founder and director of the Paul Revere Society, which supports our nation's right to defend and protect its borders, language, and culture.

From AudioFile

Michael Savage truly lives up to his name in this vicious, relentless tirade against the movers and shakers of our world. "The world of politics is filled with uncivilized, snarling, rapacious beasts that, like untrained mutts, raise their legs and urinate on everything we hold dear." Reader Tim Lundeen tries to deliver wit and comic wisdom in Savage's parade of politicos and media superstars and occasionally achieves a balance between the "beasts" and the zookeeper, but he can't keep Savage's cynicism, sarcasm, and unbridled cruelty from his voice. The production is jarred by blaring musical interludes that add a further unnerving element to a distinctly unpleasant listening experience.

I love, love, love this book. Dr. Savage nails everyone of these characters with

wit, incredible humor and facts. His ability to reduce complex issues and thoughts

into concise descriptions makes it possible for everyone to understand.

The fact that he isn't interviewed or asked to comment on all the various political

shows on TV and the radio is an outrage. We need many more who can speak out

like him and tell it like it is without fear of not being politically correct.

A friend told me he can't listen because Michael yells too much. Well I say someone

needs to be yelling about things right now. What do you think Paul Revere did!

Keep shouting it from the mountain tops Michael, we're listening!

The Political Zoo is absolute genius. I have never found a political satire that is so funny, so complete, and so relevent. Savage does a fantastic job of reminding the reader of incidents from the past and the present while connecting them to his naturalistic caractures of people in the media. While blatant in the text, the work as a whole is very subtle (the politicians are listed in alphabetical order like in a real scientific catalog) as are many of the "zoo-keeper's" descriptions of the animals. An instant classic and a must read.

For a political reader of Savage and his cohorts (I hesitate to say cohorts, because he would say he has no equals--but they're part of the scene, let's say)...this is a creative breath of fresh air and for liberal, conservative, or independent alike--if you cannot find something funny here, then you may have either lost or never had a sense of humor....but that, of course, is for the reader to find out!

I'd highly recommend this book--and that you listen to his radio show while he is still reading from it. He alludes to many topics not mentioned here, which are well worth the time to hear about.

If anything here offends you, that is probably a good thing. He does not spare Republicans, and Dick Cheney's ox is well gored...

This time Savage really outdid himself with his latest book of satire: The Political Zoo.

As a conservative and a Savage lover, I could not stop laughing at most, if not all, of the cartoons a write-ups in this book.

As for the 2 or 3 negative reviews that insist on calling Savage by his real, legal name, it is obvious they are just "Red Diaper Doper Babies" who have been paid to post their reviews, clearly have a personal hatred for Savage, or both.

Of course, no liberal is going to laugh when reading this conservative work. The truth often hurts and hurting is never funny for the "hurtee".

Love the book and love the man!!!

BTW, as for the reviewer that claimed they thought that Savage, O'Reilly, and Limbaugh were all in agreement, you obviously have never really heard Savage or even those other talk shows.

Notice how the "Savage Weiner" psychos never attack Savage's positions on current issues, they just attack his name change and positions he supposedly took on alternative medicine 25 years ago? It kind of speaks for itself, doesn't it? They have to attack him on something other than his positions, since he is right on target about them and they know it. They do the same thing to Ann Coulter - "She lied about her age on her driver's license." Yea, so? What does that have to do with her ability to call liberals out on their utter stupidity? It's a small group of radical propagandists who chase Savage and Coulter, creating websites devoted entirely to discrediting them and they go after Savage's advertisers too - I can tell by these posts it's the same group of people with the same tired smears that have been posted online for years. One of them even calls himself "Savage Weiner." He's so obsessed with despising Michael Savage, he named himself after him. I was crashing their message boards 4 years ago - just wait, they will come back and post something about Savage "swimming naked with Allen Ginsburg." I don't care if he married Allen Ginsburg, it has nothing to do with his accuracy as a pundit. Facts are facts, which is why they never attack his arguments, just his past life as a hippie in the 60's. He was amongst them in his early years, which is why he has such an iron grip on how to best expose them and that is why they work day and night to try to discredit HIM, not his arguments.

Notice how aside from only a couple reviewers who didn't like the style or tone of the book, the only critical review that even addressed Savage's arguments in a rational manner was a conservative defending Rush Limbaugh?

Dr Savage, with his brilliant independent mind, brings a controversial and informing novel to one's reading list. In his book, he describes the filth in washington, and he details the failures of this filth. Savage attacks both republicans and democrats alike which brings a non-biased opinion to his novel. I highly recommend this incredable piece of art to anyone with a mind capable of logic and reason.
