Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, bestselling author, and Wheel of Fortune contestant Dave Barry exposes the shattering truth. Whether he's splashing with the U.S. sychronized swim team ("Picture a bunch of elegant swans swimming with a flailing sea cow") or reliving the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving ("We've decided to obliterate your culture, but first may we try the stuffing?"), Dave Barry proves that one man can make a difference--by having the guts to answer the questions few people bother to ask:

What makes people want to eat animals they would never consider petting?

Where do the World's Three Most Boring People meet?

Why is Colorado freezing so many human gonads?

And just how does Oprah have the power to turn a 1957 Hotpoint toaster manual into a #1 bestseller?

Synopsis:

Dave Barry was born in Armonk, New York, in 1947 and has been steadily growing older ever since, without ever actually reaching maturity.He attended public schools, where he distinguished himself by not getting in nearly as much trouble as he would have if

Synopsis:

The popular humorist shares a collection of his syndicated columns that discuss his coverage of the Olympics, swimming with the U.S. synchronized swim team, his appearance on "Wheel of Fortune," and other events
