Rate this:
In eighteen hilarious pieces, Dave Barry tackles everything from fatherhood, new fatherhood (?Over the next five years, you will spend roughly 45 minutes, total, listening to songs you like, and roughly 127,000 hours listening to songs exploring topics such as how the horn on the bus goes?), self-image, the battle of the sexes, celebrity, and technology (?In the old days, the closest you could get to Twitter would be to mail dozens of postcards a day to everybody you know, each with a brief message like, ?Just had a caramel frappuccino. Yum!??), to parenting styles, reality shows, certain medical procedures.

I haven't read the whole book, still working on it but it's so disturbingly true and funny. A nice read so far!

Still funny, though perhaps less manic and with depth and complexity added in.

I could write the same comment for any Dave Barry book-he is hilarious, and almost always makes me laugh so hard that I cry! When you get to the part about him doing "The Alligator" (a dance move) you will agree with me.

A long time ago Dave Barry wrote a book called "Dave Barry Turns 40." It was very amusing. A not quite so long time ago Dave Barry wrote a book called "Dave Barry Turns 50". It was also very amusing. Then Dave Barry turned 60 and wrote a book called "I'll Mature When I'm Dead." It is somewhat amusing. Hey, he can't be hilarious all the time.
