What People are saying about this

P.J. O'Rourke
We in the print media are seeing our world collapse around us. There aren't enough newspapers left to line the bottom of a canary cage. Magazines are thinner than my hair. And 'writing' is done only on Wii. But here's Dave Barry, flourishing like never before, with a book that's funnier than ever, greeted with clamorous demand by eager hordes of fans. Let's kill him.
Steve Martin
I'm am so please to have received an advance copy of Dave's book and use most of the material myself. He is truly the funniest man living in the 3 mile "safe" zone off the shores of America.
Carl Hiaasen

Meet the Author

Dave Barry is a humor columnist. For 25 years he was a syndicated columnist whose work appeared in more than 500 newspapers in the United States and abroad. In 1988 he won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary. Many people are still trying to figure out how this happened.

Dave has also written a total of 25 books, although virtually none of them contain useful information. Two of his books were used as the basis for the CBS TV sitcom "Dave's World," in which Harry Anderson played a much taller version of Dave.

Dave plays lead guitar in a literary rock band called the Rock Bottom Remainders, whose other members include Stephen King, Amy Tan, Ridley Pearson and Mitch Albom. They are not musically skilled, but they are extremely loud. Dave has also made many TV appearances, including one on the David Letterman show where he proved that it is possible to set fire to a pair of men's underpants with a Barbie doll.

In his spare time, Dave is a candidate for president of the United States. If elected, his highest priority will be to seek the death penalty for whoever is responsible for making Americans install low-flow toilets.

Dave lives in Miami, Florida, with his wife, Michelle, a sportswriter. He has a son, Rob, and a daughter, Sophie, neither of whom thinks he's funny.
