      • bioText: Dave Barry is a humor columnist. For 25 years he was a syndicated columnist whose work appeared in more than 500 newspapers in the United States and abroad. In 1988 he won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary. Many people are still trying to figure out how this happened.

        Dave has also written a total of 25 books, although virtually none of them contain useful information. Two of his books were used as the basis for the CBS TV sitcom "Dave's World," in which Harry Anderson played a much taller version of Dave.

        Dave plays lead guitar in a literary rock band called the Rock Bottom Remainders, whose other members include Stephen King, Amy Tan, Ridley Pearson and Mitch Albom. They are not musically skilled, but they are extremely loud. Dave has also made many TV appearances, including one on the David Letterman show where he proved that it is possible to set fire to a pair of men's underpants with a Barbie doll.

        In his spare time, Dave is a candidate for president of the United States. If elected, his highest priority will be to seek the death penalty for whoever is responsible for making Americans install low-flow toilets.

        Dave lives in Miami, Florida, with his wife, Michelle, a sportswriter. He has a son, Rob, and a daughter, Sophie, neither of whom thinks he's funny.

shortDescription
A brilliantly funny exploration of the treacherous state of adulthood by a Pulitzer Prize–winning humorist.
 
In eighteen hilarious pieces, Dave Barry tackles everything from fatherhood, new fatherhood (“Over the next five years, you will spend roughly 45 minutes, total, listening to songs you like, and roughly 127,000 hours listening to songs exploring topics such as how the horn on the bus goes”), self-image, the battle of the sexes, celebrity, and technology (“In the old days, the closest you could get to Twitter would be to mail dozens of postcards a day to everybody you know, each with a brief message like, ‘Just had a caramel frappuccino. Yum!’”), to parenting styles, reality shows, certain medical procedures (“There is absolutely no reason to be afraid of a vasectomy”), and the ultimate adult, Jack “Damn it, Chloe, there’s no time!” Bauer.

In all, it is an audiobook of pure delight from the man one newspaper said “could become the most important American humorist since Mark Twain” (South Florida Sun-Sentinel).
