Ready to laugh so loud you'll fall out of your chair?  

During the course of living (mumble, mumble) years, Dave Barry has learned much of wisdom,* (*actual wisdom not guaranteed) and he is eager to pass it onto the next generation, the generation after that, and, you get the idea...

In brilliant, brand-new, never-before-published pieces, Dave passes on home truths to his new grandson and to his daughter Sophie, who will be getting her learner's permit in 2015 ("So you're about to start driving! How exciting! I'm going to kill myself"). He explores the hometown of his youth, where the grown-ups were supposed to be uptight fifties conformists, but seemed to have a lot of un"Mad Men"like fun, unlike Dave's own Baby Boomer generation, which was supposed to be wild and crazy, but somehow turned into neurotic hover-parents.

He dives into everything from the inanity of cable news and the benefits of Google Glass ("You will look like a douchebag") to the loneliness of high school nerds ("You will never hear a high school girl say about a boy, in a dreamy voice, 'He's so sarcastic!'"), from the perils of home repair to firsthand accounts of the soccer craziness of Brazil and the just plain crazy craziness of Vladimir Putin's Russia ("He stares at the camera with the expression of a man who relaxes by strangling small furry animals"), and a lot more besides.

Dave Barry has been a professional humorist ever since he discovered that professional humor was a lot easier than working.  He has won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary (one of Barry's columns was largely responsible for the movement to observe International Talk Like a Pirate Day every year on September 19).  In addition, he has written more than 30 books, including the novels "Big Trouble", "Lunatics", "Tricky Business" and, most recently, "Insane City". He has also written a number of books with titles like "I'll Mature When I'm Dead", which are technically classified as nonfiction, although they contain numerous lies.
