Overview

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Dave Barry has won another informational sweepstake.

His columns get out of the paper and sent around more than those of any other columnist in America. Whether he's running for president, playing Claptonesque guitar in the world's most literary band (The Rock-Bottom Remainders), exploring the outer reaches of answering machine humor, or getting the real scoop on all those UFO sightings, Dave Barry has a knack for giving his readers a few laughs and lots of expensive merchandise (ordered from the Home Shopping Club). We're not making this up.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Barry ( The Taming of the Screw ) is in top form in his latest collection of essays from the Miami Herald. He introduces readers to his teenage son, who rarely leaves his room except to demand new sneakers; to his two dogs, Earnest and Zippy, so fearsome to intruders that Barry had to install an alarm system; to certain Florida UFOlogists, who sound like prospective candidates for psychiatric study. There are several pieces about Barry's contest to pick the worst modern pop song, which drew 10,000 responses, with ``MacArthur Park'' the clear winner. Exceptionally good are the travel articles about China and Bimini. Other topics involve lefthandedness, the hazards of air travel (principally the other passengers) and masochistic consumers. (June)

I could not stop laughing for the first few chapters! Hilarious!! Some chapters are definately no child friendly, but at least get the free sample; first chapter was ridiculously funny.

Typically Dave Barry: Moments of seriousness mixed with a healthy dose of laugh-out-loud humor. Dave is the master of turning everyday activities into laughter. I think I have now read all of his works and I await his next effort.
