WHEN DAVE BARRY IS ON THE LOOSE, NO ONE IS SAFE!

What Dave Barry did for the men's movement in his Complete Guide to Guys and for foreign relations when he did Japan he now does for . . . everything in America. The rapacious observer of Tupperware ladies and leisure concept salesmen sounds off on:

Football--Football is more than just a game. It is a potential opportunity to see a live person lying on the ground with a bone sticking out of his leg, while the fans, to show their appreciation, perform "the wave."

Sailing--There's nothing quite like getting out on the open sea, where you can forget about the hassles and worries of life on land, and concentrate on the hassles and worries of life on the sea, such as death by squid.

Gambling--Off-Track Betting parlors are the kinds of places where you never see signs that say, "Thank You for Not Smoking." The best you can hope for is, "Thank You for Not Spitting Pieces of Your Cigar on My Neck."

"The good news: he's funny as ever. The bad news: the book is only 304 pages."
--Los Angeles Daily News

The good news: he's funny as ever. The bad news: the book is only 304 pages.
Alison Teal
It is gratifying to report that ''Dave Barry's Greatest Hits,'' Mr. Barry's seventh book, is as sparkling and foolish as his others....Mr. Barry is a product of the 1960's and the generation that invented the notion that it's very funny to misunderstand the issue. ''Where did the universe come from? . . . Various weensy particles began clumping together to form stars, planets, saxophones, etc., which is why we refer to this as the 'Big Band' theory''....Mr. Barry is the funniest man in America and we should encourage him. Buy his book. -- New York Times

If you haven't read anything by Dave Barry yet, you are seriously missing out. He gives a whole new meaning to "lol". Pretty much any book of his you pick up is going to be awesome, and this is definitely one of my favorites. It is hilarious and unoffensive and such a good read. The only downside is once you buy this one you are going to want to buy all of his other ones...
