    I recommend this for any one with a funny bone.

    I like to take it with me when I have to wait for anything, appointments, etc. I can read a section in a few minutes. They are mainly just humorous thoughts about life, just like his 60 Minute comments were.

    A reality check?

    In this tome Andy Rooney, a self professed curmudgeon, comments on the foibles of life from a point of view which all of us experience but fail for the most part to note. His commentaries range from the construction of chairs to the differences between conservatives and liberals. The references range from life in general to more personal things such as his rating as a number one napper. Many of the articles are similar in thought to those of George Carlin in his book Brain Droppings albeit without the profanity. For a lighthearted look at life in these United States and a personal reality check coupled with the enhancement of our own observational prowess this book is highly recommended

    Another Comedy Version of 60 Minutes

    If you liked Sincerely,Andy Rooney,you'll love Common Nonsense. Anyone who likes investigative news shows should read this book. You'll especially love how Andy finds out that a breakfast biscuit is imported due to the British spelling

    Funny and Wise

    Like or dislike him, the guy is witty. I love the way he takes humanity and makes us laugh at ourselves. He tackles everything in this book from politics to religion. Mother always said if you want folk to like you not to do that. I'm sure there are those who won't like this book because of his subject matter. Heck, I didn't agree with everything he said. But, I like the way he said it. If your looking for laughs I heartly recommend this book.

    Get the party going!

    Some years ago Andy Rooney walked into Charles Kuralt's CBS News office with a copy of Charles' latest book in his hand. "It's a great book, Charles," Rooney opined. "I read it coming down the elevator." "Common nonSense" takes elevator reading to new heights, quick, opinionated rifts which may leave the reader struggling for a reply. Who, but Rooney, would put forth Disneyland as an enviormentalist's dream because it keeps millions of people from trampling our national parks? Or, have the audacity to believe, "Everyone doesn't have a right to his opinion."? But, if you really want to get the party going invoke his 'capitalism depends on greed' creed. It should take you right up to the witching hour.
