Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Yarbrough | 2/19/2014

    " Laugh out funny in places. Stolen articles from his newspaper article in the Miami Herald thrown into a book format but it still was a fun read before sleep. A good book to finish on April Fool's Day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 2/14/2014

    " I freaking love Dave Barry. He is my kind of funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry | 2/13/2014

    " I love all of Dave Barry's books, but steer clear of the political ones. I don't find any political stuff humorous- just boring. This book especially cracked me up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/6/2014

    " If you're going to read the verbal vomit of some man, you might as well read the verbal vomit of a comedic genius. My throat is sore from the laughter snort spasms this book caused. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Duane | 2/5/2014

    " If you're ever needing a good laugh, then you should always pick up any book by Dave Barry. This book is based on his column in the Herald Tribune so the topics change with each chapter. Barry does a excellent job with sarcasm and direct to the point wit, so if you enjoy learning a few things and laughing, then this book is for you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Davecon | 1/25/2014

    " Dave Barry books are always good for chuckles. This was a compilation of articles he wrote several years ago for the Miami Herald which were then syndicated. There were some really funny ones in this collection! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 1/22/2014

    " The book is a collection of his columns, so if you are familiar with them, it may be a bit of a repeat for you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caitlin | 1/18/2014

    " Enjoyed this book much more than the previous one I read (Dave Barry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 rabbitprincess | 12/26/2013

    " Many entertaining columns in this book, including the time Dave got to drive the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. A classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mysterious | 12/23/2013

    " Always full of laughter, I really enjoy Dave Barry's brand of humor "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 12/18/2013

    " This book contains arguably my favorite Barry bit about classical music vs. the song Mammer Jammer. It used to make me laugh hysterically as a kid. A winner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melynna | 11/24/2013

    " I said non-fiction, but that might be a lie. Nonetheless, Justin and I liked a lot of the stuff in here. We had fun reading some of them out loud together. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 10/31/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian | 9/14/2013

    " I remember a time in middle school when Dave Barry was inexplicably hilarious. I find his humor less appealing now, but expect that when I reach my 60s he'll become funny again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 8/7/2013
