This is a collection of his newspaper columns from 2000 to 2003. Most are funny but a bit dated (Remember hanging chads?). His last two are on the 9/11 events and really change the tone of the book, not in a good way. Remember… "Dave Barry" can be rearranged to spell "Brave Yard".

Dave Barry is his usual funny self. It took awhile for his funny side to appear, which is unusual. but finally, he had me laughing a lot. The end was serious, because for some reason his editor(s) or whomever told him to write about some of the 9-11 events, which I feel doesn't belong in a humor book. The book was great, except for that part.
