    Thank you for Smoking - Christopher Buckley

    Nobody blows smoke like Nick Naylor. He’s a spokesman for the Academy of Tobacco Studies–in other words, a flack for cigarette companies, paid to promote their product on talk and news shows. The problem? He’s so good at his job, so effortlessly unethical, that he’s become a target for both anti-tobacco terrorists and for the FBI. In a country where half the people want to outlaw pleasure and the other want to sell you a disease, what will become of the original Puff Daddy?

    This is one of those rare cases where the movie is better than the book. Much much better. The book does have more of the delicious dialogue which made the movie so brilliant but the story is not something I liked. Not really recommended if you've seen the film.
