" So far, my continuing with this book at all is a testimony to what a good writer PJ O'Rourke is. The book is about cars, a subject in which I have no interest. The major secondary focus so far seems to be drinking and taking drugs, two activities that have little appeal for me and don't seem like interesting subjects to nonparticipants. There's also a misogynist streak in the earliest of the essays included here. I will say that the misogyny seems to get milder over time, and that O'Rourke's more recent commentary on that early essay, in which he pokes fun at his younger self, manages to take a bit of the sting out of that early work. At any rate, the man is extraordinarily funny, in many cases laugh-out-loud funny, and I am enjoying the book against all reasonable expectations. "
