Typical Dave Barry and that's a good thing.
I would definitely listen to this audio book again. It is nice to be able to be amused by the short essays and not have to be concerned with a lengthy story line sometimes.
Dave Barry is always good for a laugh but the two serious essays regarding 9/11 are reminders that he can be a very fine, thoughtful, and inciteful author.
