A New York Times Bestselling Author During the course of living (mumble, mumble) years, Dave Barry has learned much wisdom, he is eager to pass it on -- to the next generation, the generation after that, and to those idiots who make driving to the grocery store in Florida a death-defying experience.In brilliant, brand-new pieces, Dave passes on home truths to his new grandson and his teenaged daughter Sophie. He dives into everything from the inanity of cable news and the benefits of Google Glass to the soccer craziness of Brazil and the just plain craziness of Vladimir Putin's Russia. By the end, if you do not feel wiser, richer in knowledge, more attuned to the universe . . . we wouldn't be at all surprised. But you'll have had a lot to laugh about!

The subtitle of this book indicates Beer is a fast way to happiness. I would have to say the fastest way is to read this book. In this collection of humorous essays, Barry talks about common topics in a manner that tickles the funny bone. Everytime I read a paragraph, I wished I could have said that! Barry is a master of the humour genre.

I so enjoy reading humorist Dave Barry’s collections of his essays or newspaper columns because 1) I grew up partly in the same place he lives and frequently writes about (Miami and Coral Gables, Florida), and 2) it’s guaranteed that at some point I will be laughing so hard I will be gasping for air. In this book, the hysterical laughter was generated by Barry’s essay on home ownership and his husbandly duties of removing, or at least pretending to remove, the lizards that frequently invade his family’s home.
