Publisher's Summary

Chairs. Neat people. Ugliness. War. Over six decades of intrepid reporting and elegant essays, Andy Rooney has proven a shrewd cultural analyst unafraid to question the sometimes ridiculous, often surprising facts of our lives. Rooney’s great gift is telling it straight, without a hint of sugar coating, but with more than a grain of truth and humor. His take on America? "It’s just amazing how long this country has been going to hell without ever having got there.” On food? "There’s more dependable mediocrity than there used to be.” Andy Rooney: 60 Years of Wisdom and Wit brings together the best of more than a half-century of work (including long-out-of-print pieces from his early years) in an unforgettable celebration of one of America’s funniest men. Like Mark Twain, Finley Peter Dunne (Mister Dooley) and Will Rogers, Andy Rooney is a classic chronicler of America, a writer for the ages.

A good style

It was sweet and informative and written by a very smart man who seemed a bit vulnerable and worthy of respect.

Rooney, I miss you

I miss very few people but Andy Rooney is one. I appreciate someone who cuts through this mess we call life. He was honest in his writing and today that is a lost art, just watch any news program at 6 or 11.
