Overview


Andy Rooney's weekly commentaries on 60 Minutes and his twice-weekly syndicated newspaper columns-addressing everything from deceptive cereal packaging to the existence of God-have made him America's best-known critic of the quotidian. As you might imagine, he gets a lot of letters in response to his often iconoclastic views. As you might not expect, he writes a lot of letters, too.

Now Rooney has collected the funniest, wisest, and most interesting of his letters, spanning several decades and addressing issues both momentous and trivial. He responds to complaints from viewers; he corresponds with old friends; and he writes to his children about the things he cares about most. Variously caustic, hilarious, and sage, these unfailingly entertaining letters reveal not only Rooney the iconoclast but Rooney the American Everyman. Sincerely, Andy Rooney is Andy Rooney at his best-and a wonderful gift book that will make readers chuckle and think twice.

    Like a comedy version of 60 Minutes

    For anyone who who watches 60 Minutes or any other investigative news show,you'll laugh,especially when Andy says that there is no Mrs.Smith of Mrs.Smith's pies.

    Typical Andy Rooney

    For followers and fans of Andy Rooney, this book will come as a welcome addition to his many accomplishments. It is written in a manner that perpetuates Rooney's self-serving style. He takes a stand and refuses to apologize because others may find it objectionable. Though he provides prefaces for many of the letters, all of the correspondence is from his point of view. No one is allowed a rebuttal. He combines humor, sarcasm and rhetoric in a way that makes the book hard to put down, literally and figuratively. Though he makes many statements that you may find controversial, you have to admire him for making the statements in the first place. He ends the book with a dissertation on his view of religion(s). I was unaware of this aspect of A. Rooney. He gives a convincing argument for agnosticism. For those who like Andy Rooney, you will enjoy this book. For the rest of the world, probably not. I suspect, though, that there will be very few readers who are ambivalent.
