Vintage 1991 mild xenophobia, mullet, and all Disturbingly, it feels like a gentler,innocent time.I will never love another Dave Barry book as much as Dave Barry s Book of Bad Songs, and I should learn to accept that. The 1991 DAVE BARRY S ONLY TRAVEL GUIDE YOU LL EVER NEED by the aforementioned Dave Barry is as funny today as it was when it was first published Sure, the world has changed but that is mostly due to wi fi, the internet and those instant coffee machines with the little cups People are still the same, the countries of the world are still out there although slightly rearranged, and you still can t drink the water in South America, but funny remains funny And Dave Barry is funny So if you are planning a trip and want some great advice, get a real guide book But if you want to stay on the patio, grilling burgers and swatting flies, here is your introduction to the world Warning Take the advice offered in this book at your own risk You may hazard splitting sides, rude stares from your neighbors on the bus, or soda snorting out your nose Read at your own peril Remember, you were warned Dave Barry is a funny, weird guy He never fails to make me laugh. When things get too serious, Dave Barry is always a perfect way to lighten the mood and give a solid belly laugh or two This book is no exception. I read a lot of Dave Barry books in high school As all cool kids do So of course I had to get this when I saw it at a library book sale I didn t enjoy this as much as I ve enjoyed his other books the jokes got a little tired after a while But it had its moments. The first half is really good, but it degenerates a bit humour wise at the end. This is one of those books that I read in just one or two sittings It was that good and that short Anytime a friend or loved one of mine is going on vacation or traveling for business, I encourage them to read this book prior to their departure They almost never do, but that s their loss.Most critics will agree that this is Barry s best book followed closely by Greatest Hits Of the Barry titles that I have read, I would tend to agree It s very cohesive and contains illustrations that add a dash of extra hilarity to his writing.The section where he details every state in the USA They re Progressive is worth the cover price The way he details foreign countries that he has and hasn t visited are hilarious as he tends to play a lot on stereotypes, but I would read the designated section for visiting any of them to see if I agree.If you ve read anything by Dave Barry before, you know what you are going to get A quick read, a lot of laughs, and a desire for .Also recommended Dave Barry s Greatest Hits Dave Barry is Not Making this Up. Mr Barry delivers humor once again This is a must read before your next vacation Two thumbs up
