Andy Rooney has been at it for twenty-five years. It's time to celebrate. So here's the ultimate gift for every Rooney fan: an illustrated collection of Rooney's very best pieces from a quarter century at 60 Minutes. Readers can relive Rooney's sharpest investigative reports and his toughest interviews. Or they can sit back, put their feet up, and chuckle through some vintage Rooney rants: Andy grumbling about the clutter in our everyday lives; Andy skewering the pomposity of politicians; Andy telling the ugly truth about fad diets and dumb sports and our various obsessions with our own absurdities. In Years of Minutes, Andy Rooney, America's best-loved humorist and commentator, offers his keenest observations in a lifetime spent studying--and laughing at--the joys and frustrations of American life.

Review: Years of Minutes: The Best of Rooney from 60 Minutes

User Review  - Dathan - Goodreads

It's a collection of essays from his years on "60 minutes". It's not a book you sit and read in a few sittings - but may possibly be the best bathroom reader ever. Read full review
