Review: Dave Barry's Guide to Life (Contains: "Dave Barry's Guide to Marriage and/or Sex" / "Babies and Other Hazards of Sex" / "Stay Fit and Healthy Until You're Dead" / "Claw Your Way to the Top")

User Review  - Jill - Goodreads

I didn't realize this was a compilation of several books. There were some very funny parts, but some of it was repeated, and sometimes, he is just trying too hard. I did laugh a lot - especially at the excerpts on pregnancy and men's child-rearing. Read full review

User Review  - Tamsyn Kennedy - Goodreads

Easy to dip in and out of and still laugh out loud funny, even if some of the references are dated. Read full review

About the author (1991)

Dave Barry was born in Armonk, New York; in 1947; he was elected class clown at Pleasantville High School in 1965; he graduated with an English degree from Haverford College in 1969. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author claims that his humor stems from his early years in Armonk, New York. His humor columns are syndicated in hundreds of weekly papers. By his own admission, Barry never grew up. His early attempts at small-town journalism for the Daily Local News in West Chester, Pennsylvania, were directed towards dull local matters, such as zoning and sewage. In 1975, Barry briefly attempted to teach business writing to business people. Since then, Barry has turned to writing about such topics as exploding cows and whales and wayward science fair projects. Barry's books include Babies and Other Hazards of Sex, Dave Barry Slept Here: A Sort of History of the United States, Dave Barry in Cyberspace, Dave Barry's Complete Guide to Guys, Dave Barry Turns 40, Peter and the Sword of Mercy and I'll Mature When I'm Dead.
