Read full description of the books:
The first chapter of Dave Barry's millennial review is a hilarious, condensed chronicle of the previous thousand years (1000-1999 A.D.); wars, revolutions and cultural epochs swirl past in a kaleidoscope of muddled history. The ensuing chapters lampoon the media, politics and pop-culture of first eight years of our current millennium; these chapters are less inspired. Apparently there's more comic material in one thousand years than in eight and those subjects were already well-worn by a multitude of modern mockers by the time Barry's book got published.
But while the prolific jokester struggles to find comedic ground not covered by Leno, Letterman or Stewart, his wit makes this stroll through absurdity a quaint one. And you might just recall some Earth-shaking events from the recent past; remember the hullabaloo over Scooter Libby? (I hadn't.) How about Elian Gonzales? (Sadly, I had.) What about that time congress was super-dysfunctional? (Ha ha.) Barry makes all this silliness palatable, though it's hard to laugh when you're cringing.

Read information about the authorDave 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 30 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.
