Rachel Maddow has distinguished herself in the sea of cable-channel talking heads by basing her opinions on common sense and reportage. To our knowledge, she’s never cried on camera, badmouthed her network or referred to anyone as a “slut.”

In her new book, Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power, Maddow argues the United States has moved into a perpetual state of war, with little concern for the financial cost and loss of lives involved. It’s a serious tome, but is still infused with Maddow’s signature brand of snarky humor.

NPR’s Ira Glass has said of Drift: “People who love Rachel Maddow will discover that her gift for finding amazing anecdotes and funny, revealing details totally translates to the page. People who hate her may be surprised by how often in Drift she espouses some of the most conservative values: a suspicion of big government and unbridled federal power, a zeal to cut wasteful spending and a yearning to return to the intentions of the Founding Fathers.”
