Overview

Dave Barry Slept Here: A Sort of History of the United States by Dave Barry

"Bary turns his formidable wit to the subject of American history, with a result reminiscent of the Reduced Shakespeare Company: The better you know the original, the funnier it gets."
LOS ANGELES TIMES
This time Dave Barry's subject is history, the way it's never been told before. Every single momentous event and crucial moment is covered, including...The Birthing Contractions of a Nation; Kicking Some British Butt; The Fifties: Peace, Prosperity, Brain Death, right up through the scintillating Reagan-Bush years. If you love to laugh, and you love your country, this is the book you've been waiting for since 1776. Or at least since Super Bowl III.

This is a great book. The more you know about American history, the funnier it is. It may not be for everyone. Dave Barry's humor is very unique but if you like his style, this is one of his best!

If you've ever read Dave's year end reviews (or his millenium review from this past year), you'll have an idea of what this book is like. It's a hysterical mix of facts, fiction, and distortion of events. As always, Dave makes you laugh your tuckus off.
