Description


A brilliantly funny exploration of the Sunshine State from the man who knows it best: Pulitzer Prize winner and "New York Times" bestselling author Dave Barry.
We never know what will happen next in Florida. We know only that, any minute now, something will.
Every few months, Dave Barry gets a call from some media person wanting to know, What the hell is wrong with Florida? Somehow, the state's acquired an image as a subtropical festival of stupid, and as a loyal Floridian, Dave begs to differ. Sure, there was the 2000 election. And people seem to take their pants off for no good reason. And it has flying insects the size of LeBron James. But it is a great state, and Dave is going to tell you why. Join him as he celebrates Florida from Key West at the bottom to whatever it is that's at the top, from the Sunshine State's earliest history to the fun-fair of weirdness and gunfire ( Our motto: Come back We weren t firing at "you" ) that it is today.
It's the most hilarious book yet from the funniest damn writer in the whole country (Carl Hiaasen, and he should know). By the end, you ll have to admit that whatever else you might think about Florida you can never say it's boring.

About the Author


From 1983 to 2004, Dave Barry wrote a weekly humor column for "The" "Miami Herald," which in 1988 won a Pulitzer Prize for Commentary. He is the author of more than thirty books, including such bestsellers as the nonfiction "Live Right and Find Happiness (Although Beer Is Much Faster)," "You Can Date Boys When You re Forty," and "I ll Mature When I m Dead"; the novels "Big Trouble," "Tricky Business," and "Insane City"; the very successful YA Peter Pan novels (with Ridley Pearson); and his Christmas story" The Shepherd, the Angel, and Walter the Christmas Miracle Dog." Two of his books "Big Trouble" and "Dave Barry s Guide to Guys" have been turned into movies. For a while, his life was even a television series, "Dave s World, " but then it was canceled. The series. Not the life. For many years, Dave was also a guitarist with the late, infamous, and strangely unlamented band the Rock Bottom Remainders."
