Dave Barry returns with a new collection of humor essays. Written since his retirement from the humor column business, Barry is allowed to write on a subject for as long as he'd like. And, for the most part, it works. Some of the essays overstay their welcome like most SNL skits, these days, but when Barry is on a roll, he's still one of the funniest guys alive.

His parodies of "24" and "Twilight" are perfect, though it's a bit sad to think we'll not see more of Jack Bauer.

The best essay is one that was previously published about Dave getting his prostate examined. At times hysterical, at times touching and at times thought-provoking, the essay is Barry at his best and makes the collection worth your time.

Jim I used to follow his column & tried reading one of his books. Unfortunately, my sense of humor trips out way too soon for an entire book. One my favorites was the rant against shrink wrap.
