An irreverent alternate perspective on recent world events features whimsical commentary on such topics as the 2000 election, the non-finding of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and the invention of pizza by Leonardo da Vinci.

Dave Barrys bestsellers include his Peter Pan prequels, written with Ridley Pearson; Ill Mature When Im Dead; and Lunatics, written with Alan Zweibel. He is also the author of the two dark comic suspense novels Big Trouble and Tricky Business. A play based on his first Peter Pan book, Peter and the Starcatchers, is currently a hit on Broadway. He lives in Coral Gables, Florida.From AudioFile:
Dave Barry is at his best when hes short and sweet, which is one reason to enjoy DAVE BARRYS HISTORY OF THE MILLENNIUM (SO FAR). Patrick Frederick is the latest in a line of readers of Barrys work, and perhaps the closest to Barrys tone. Frederick lets the humor flow naturally. This is an irreverent, deliberately misinformed history of civilization, unless Peter Minuit really did purchase Manhattan for $64 plus $167,000 a month in maintenance fees. Barry is brutal in his assessment of the Bush administration(s), all of them. But he doesnt spare the Democrats either. This is a perfect dose of Barrys oddball humor, which is great in small doses, say a couple hundred years at a time. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
