Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Dave Barry is a pretty amiable guy. But lately, he’s been getting a little worked up. What could make a mild-mannered man of words so hot under the collar? Well, a lot of things–like bad public art, Internet millionaires, SUVs, Regis Philbin . . . and even bigger problems, like

• The slower-than-deceased-livestock left-lane drivers who apparently believe that the right lane is sacred and must never come in direct contact with tires

• The parent-misery quotient of last-minute school science fair projects

• Day trading and other careers that never require you to take off your bathrobe

• The plague of the low-flow toilets, which is so bad that even in Miami, where you can buy drugs just by opening your front door and yelling “Hey! I want some crack,” you can’t even sell your first born to get a normal-flushing toilet

Dave Barry is not taking any of this sitting down. He’s going to stand up for the rights of all Americans against ridiculously named specialty “–chino” coffees and the IRS. Just as soon as he gets the darn toilet flushed.

Synopsis:

In a hilarious new compilation of syndicated columns, the author of Dave Barry Turns 50 takes on the dangers of improperly sized brassieres, low-flow toilets, day trading, school science fairs, the IRS, the airlines, pine sap transfusions for tired Christmas trees, and more. Reprint.
