P.J. O’Rourke is one of the defining commentators and humorists of his generation, and his books have sold over two million copies worldwide.
P.J.’s most recent book, How the Hell Did This Happen?, exceeded sales expectations—going into six hardcover printings and continuing to sell in paperback. The book was featured in Vanity Fair’s Hot Type, was previewed by Richard Johnson for the New York Post, and was excerpted by the Weekly Standard.
P.J.’s signature brand of humor first landed him at the top of the New York Times bestseller list with his takedown of politics in Washington: Parliament of Whores. None of My Business is the business-world counterpart—a lone humorist’s attempt to explain the world of finance (to hilarious effect).
Most chapters have appeared in an earlier version in the Stansberry Digest (400k subscribers), which is very excited about None of My Business and will be actively promoting the book. P.J. has recently partnered with Stansberry to start the web magazine American Consquences (220k subscribers), of which he is editor-in-chief.
P.J. speaks at events around the world and is continually building and expanding his audience as a regular contributor to the Daily Beast and NPR’s Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me.
Two of P.J.’s books have hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, Parliament of Whores and Give War a Chance.
