I agree with Andy Rooney.
This collection of essays is almost 30 years old, but Andy is still right on about the state of the world both as it is and as it was. With the exception of Hot Weather (he hates it, I thrive in it), Andy and I are kindred spirits. I guess that makes me a 'curmudgeon,' as I have often heard Rooney referred to. If the wisdom, intelligence, and the courage to say something about it that this book imparts make a curmudgeon, then we should all aspire to the moniker.

This is my last book of 2009 and it is a good one. This is a compilation of Rooney's newspaper columns covering 3+ years. If you have seen him on 60 Minutes, you will not be surprised at the wide range of subjects he covers - most of them lightheartedly.

This is another book that I would recommend that everyone read - whether or not you agree with Rooney, he makes a person think about one's own prejudices and deeply ingrained thinking. Let him challenge you.

Did you ever notice how, in the old days some stuff was better? And some other stuff wasn't? In the olden days I had to read Andy Rooney for a laugh, uphill, 5 miles, in the snow.

Not as good as his first book, but who could resist? Still great for its time.

Paperback - gave it away.

Read it in the past, reread most of it. At the time he was the original. People have jumped on the musing bandwagon and some have done it better. Interesting to see most of the issues are still issues and history repeats
