9781455807680: Dave Barry Is Not Taking This Sitting Down

Following the bestselling success of Dave's novel, Big Trouble, here is a hilarious new collection of columns from the writer critics have called "the funniest man in America."

What's been getting Dave Barry all worked up lately? What can possibly induce him to rise up—yes, actually out of his chair—in indignation? Well, lots of things. For instance...

The plague of low-flow toilets
Day trading and other careers that never require you to take off your bathrobe
The parent-misery quotient of school science fairs
Pine-sap transfusions for tired Christmas trees
The real skinny on the IRS, Donald Trump, the airlines, and so much more....

From the Inside Flap:

Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Dave Barry is a pretty amiable guy. But lately, he?s been getting a little worked up. What could make a mild-mannered man of words so hot under the collar? Well, a lot of things?like bad public art, Internet millionaires, SUVs, Regis Philbin . . . and even bigger problems, like

? The slower-than-deceased-livestock left-lane drivers who apparently believe that the right lane is sacred and must never come in direct contact with tires
? The parent-misery quotient of last-minute school science fair projects
? Day trading and other careers that never require you to take off your bathrobe
? The plague of the low-flow toilets, which is so bad that even in Miami, where you can buy drugs just by opening your front door and yelling ?Hey! I want some crack,? you can?t even sell your first born to get a normal-flushing toilet

Dave Barry is not taking any of this sitting down. He?s going to stand up for the rights of all Americans against ridiculously named specialty ??chino? coffees and the IRS. Just as soon as he gets the darn toilet flushed.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

Dave Barry has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for commentary. His columns for the Miami Herald were syndicated worldwide, and he is the author of a number of bestselling books, including the recently published Peter and the Starcatchers with Ridley Pearson.
