Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessie | 2/20/2014

    " I cannot get enough of Dave Barry. This collection of short stories best belongs in the bathroom for the brief reading pleasure of all your guests. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 2/17/2014

    " Loved the bit on taxes. Very funny! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Schwartz | 2/11/2014

    " This giant compilation of columns is the best way to get into Dave Barry, for those who aren't already familiar with his style. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shraddha Gupta | 2/9/2014

    " I've never laughed this much while reading a book, except for the time when I read his guide to guys. He, like the cliche goes, defines laugh out loud. LOL. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 1/31/2014

    " I used to love reading Dave Barry's column in the newspaper, but the book form was perhaps too heavy a dose. Some of the essays (especially about his family) were quite funny, but a good bulk of the others just felt repetitive. This would probably be a good book to pick up every now & again for a little chuckle... rather than reading it like a novel, as I did. Also, future readers should be warned that this was written in the late 80's. So be prepared for lots of Reagan jokes, and references to historical events that are now (can it be?) two decades old. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandra Spangler | 1/25/2014

    " Dave is so funny! Though he does use some foul language and inapropriate stories/references, this book is too funny! Dave Barry has many other books I love and I would like to recommend them to people who love to laugh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 1/24/2014

    " Reading Dave Barry is GREAT therapy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 1/11/2014

    " How can you not totally love Dave Barry?!?! The people on the bus probably thought I was crazy laughing to myself the whole way home! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 (a)lyss(a) | 12/10/2013

    " Literally laugh-out-loud funny. Dave Barry is so bluntly sarcastic but quirky his writing is incredible. Almost as good as hearing the man tell the stories himself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig | 12/4/2013

    " I love humor columns, and Barry's is one of the best. This greatest hits collection is dated, but hilarious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 11/3/2013

    " King of written comedy in essay format. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bryan457 | 10/24/2013

    " Maybe I just wasn't in the mood, but most of this was sort of meh/whatever. Toward the end I was amused by some of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Malynda | 10/16/2013

    " David and I read this book aloud to one another, well we tried to, between all of the giggling and snorting it was hard to keep up. I friggin love Dave Barry and his writing style. Makes me smile just thinkin about it...... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maurean | 10/7/2013

    " Dave always finds something to make me laugh,and his "greatest hits" was no exception. In this collection, nothing is sacred; from religion, to politics, to football - even the family dog! And its as laugh-out-loud funny! Good stuff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bethany | 10/1/2013

    " Not bad, though it's definitely a book to read in small snippets instead of cover to cover. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 benebean | 9/19/2013

    " maybe i wasn't in the right mood or had too high expectations "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/26/2013

    " I would read this book on the bus to work in the mornings and would be laughing so hard that I would be crying. I had many looks of wonder from on-watchers. Good times!! (perhaps I read the previous edition, not 1997!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 emi Bevacqua | 12/1/2012

    " Ha ha funny even though it's meh dated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 11/4/2012

    " This book is made of articles he wrote over the years. Some were cute, some funny and some just down right riduculous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 11/1/2012

    " little language-another side splitter-dog ones are * "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Duane | 6/20/2012

    " Dave Barry does a great job of making me laugh out loud no matter where I might be reading this book. His quick wit and simple use of words, makes anything he writes a complete joy to read. I just wish I had a fraction of the wit he enjoys. I love this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Wagner | 5/14/2012

    " A bit dated but still hilarious. I listened to it while I was doing data entry at work and everyone kept coming up to me wondering what I was laughing about! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eva | 3/11/2012

    " outdated and some chapters of little interest for non-Americans "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 1/14/2012

    " The whole book: Guffaw! Except the chapter on his dad. V-poignant "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 11/25/2011

    " Anything you read by him will always be funny. I don't want to spoil it for you by writing a silly review. Just read him! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine P | 11/1/2011

    " Dave Barry is funny as always but this one was really dated. Most of the columns are from the late 80s and some of the basic columns on people and family life still held their humor but many didn't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 6/9/2011

    " Funny funny funny. And with my bad memory I can read it over and over -- and it funny every time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/23/2010

    " Funny, as always. Dave Barry's humor seems childish, but his writing - which makes simple, commonplace moments become hysterical - is quite sophisticated. Leave this book in the car or bag for whenever you have five spare minutes and need a laugh. Utterly enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheena | 12/2/2010

    " dave barry does japan was much more good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don | 10/14/2009

    " Quite good; funnier than the last few. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 10/21/2008

    " Dave Barry is so good at what he does that I found it frustrating to laugh so hard and then fail so miserably when trying to retell his stuff to my wife. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 W | 9/11/2008

    " Funny. What more do you want? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Duane | 9/4/2008

    " Another great book from Dave Barry. If you need a good laugh, don't hesitate to pick up this book or any of the other books he's written. A gem of a funny book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 5/1/2008

    " I think Dave Barry is a pretty funny guy, and I really enjoyed this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 2/18/2008

    " This is a random collection of Dave Barry's articles. It's funny and ironically, a great one to keep in your bathroom. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donald | 12/25/2007

    " Humor columnists should not write books. I will admit that some bits were funny, and that was why I picked this up. But I had to drag my cranial wadding through a lot of frivolous drival to get to the good stuff. I could get the same action with a mediocre podcast.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 8/10/2007

    " I remember reading years ago that Dave Barry was the funniest man in America. I believe he still is. "
