From Publishers Weekly:

In his eighth book, Rooney, of 60 Minutes fame, presents 130 of his syndicated newspaper columns from the past two years, ranging from the vastly amusing to the rather flat. He is at his best as a Connecticut homeowner with his amiable grousing about the frustrations that beset suburbanites. For instance, he bemoans the fact that he is unable to throw anything away, then in another piece tosses away consistency to wonder how he manages to accumulate so much junk in his garage and basement. He laments his inability to find a workman who will make minor repairs, grumbles about the vanishing space in his kitchen as microwave, food processor, etc., take over. On more serious subjects, like welfare families, the federal budget and dishonesty, he comes across as a banal cracker-barrel philosopher. But, since Rooney has a multitude of fans, this one should sell well.

From Library Journal:

This is the fourth collection of essays by the TV and newspaper columnist. As always, Rooney addresses everyday things and occurrencescutting down a tree, new shoes, his old typewriterwith the characteristic individualism and old-fashioned American sensibility that have made him popular. Rooney is positive, optimistic, and upbeat. He is at his humorous best in various pieces about kids and school. The strong, impassioned voice that spoken in previous serious essays is here only rarely. Nevertheless, Rooney's work has broad appeal. Recommended. Annie Davis, Technology Training Assocs., Cambridge, Mass.
