Synopsis

An uproariously funny examination of what one generation can teach to anotheror notfrom the Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Timesbestselling author of You Can Date Boys When Youre Forty and Insane City. During the course of living (mumble, mumble) years, Dave Barry has gained much wisdom* (*actual wisdom not guaranteed) and he is eager to pass it onto the next generation, the generation after that, and to those idiots who make driving to the grocery store in Florida a death-defying experience. In brilliant, brand-new, never-before-published pieces, Dave passes on home truths to his new grandson and to his daughter, Sophie (who will be getting her learners permit in 2015, the thought of which scares Dave silly). He explores the hometown of his youth, when all the men went to the city in suits and hats but still seemed to be having un-Mad Menlike fun, and how they turned into the neurotic hover-parents of today. He dives into everything from Google Glass (bottom line: You feel like an idiot) to why men hate birthdays and anniversaries; from How to Speak Spanish to firsthand accounts of the soccer craziness of Brazil and the just-plain-crazy craziness of Putins Russia, and a lot more besides. By the end, if you do not feel wiser, richer in knowledge, and more attuned to the universeit wouldnt be surprising. But youll have had a lot to laugh about!
