Review:
The title, as Dave Barry admits, is not entirely accurate. To be sure, this collection of articles does contain what the Pulitzer-Prize-winning author calls "an unusually high (for me) level of factual content." But there is also an abundance of goofy reportage, fart jokes (see "It's A Gas"), and Barry's long-overdue thoughts on natural childbirth.

Book description
Fitness made funny by the humorist Dave Barry, whom The New York Times dubbed "the funniest man in America." This unabridged, irreverent journey through the world of fitness fads, diets, and primitive stone jockstraps takes us on a hilarious adventure with Barry as our guide. Warning: Be prepared to laugh as Arte Johnson reads Barry's inimitable views on every imaginable part of the fitness world, including diets (such as "The Frequent Casual Motel Sex Diet") muscles (the kind people in advertisements have and the kind we have, which look more like deceased baby rabbits) and grooming (including the inner torment of all the "baldy chrome domes" out the...

Review:
Everyone knows Dave Barry as the hard-hitting Pulitzer-Prize winning columnist for the Miami Herald -- but it turns out he writes humor books as well! For thousands of years, women have asked themselves: "What is the deal with guys, anyway? What are they thinking?" The answer, of course, is: virtually nothing. If you're a guy -- or you're attempting to share a remote control with one -- you need this book, because it deals frankly and semi-thoroughly with such important guy issues as: how to have a relationship with a guy scratching the Noogie Gene ...

Review:
Will Cuppy's brand of humor seems out of vogue today, because it lacks the mean-spirited vulgarities which pass for modern wit. "The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody" is no exception. Spanning the highlights (and low-lights) of human history, Cuppy proves that whatever their rank, title or significance in history, people are simply people -- funny, occasionally childlike and completely fallible. He does it with gentle humor and a keen understanding of human foibles, making us see ourselves as clearly as we see these "greats" of history. "The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody" is funny in that intelligent way that treats the reader as an intellectual partner in exploration, not a straight man for one tiresome joke. Mor...

Review:
ep as you read Non Campus Mentis: World History According to College Students, a horrifically hilarious compendium of actual North American college student essays. Learn about the victims of the Black Death (who "grew boobs on their necks"), the Automaton Empire, Martin Luther King's famous "If I Had a Hammer" speech, the Iran Hostess Crisis, Zorroastrologism (the "duelist" religion "founded by Zorro"), and Joan of Ark, Noah's wife, at rest on Mt. Arafat. Meet Dim El Sum of Korea, the Vestigal Virgins, "dedicated to burning the internal flame," and Hitler, who "shot himself in the bonker." Did you know a position as "lady-in-mating helped a y... Rest of this review on the detail page
