Publisher's Summary

The New York Times calls him "the funniest man in America," and his legions of fans agree, laughing and snorting as they put his books on best-seller lists nationwide.

In Boogers Are My Beat, Dave gives us the real scoop on:

  • The scientific search for the world's funniest joke (you can bet it includes the word "weasel")
  • RV camping in the Wal-Mart parking lot
  • Outwitting "smart" kitchen appliances and service contracts
  • Elections in Florida ("You can't spell Florida without 'duh'")
  • The Olympics, where people from all over the world come together to accuse each other of cheating
  • The truth about the Dakotas, the Lone Ranger, and feng shui
  • The choice between death and taxes

    And much, much more - including some truths about journalism and serious thoughts about 9/11.

      "Timing affects reading"

      First, no one reads Dave Barry better than Dave Barry. While the performance was okay, it's much better when he narrates his own books. That said, the book was funny, but had I read it closer to the time it was published there would have been many more laughs. Read is you have a good memory, but if you don't, find a more current Barry.

      "Typical Dave Barry and that's a good thing."
      Would you listen to Boogers Are My Beat again? Why?

      I would definitely listen to this audio book again. It is nice to be able to be amused by the short essays and not have to be concerned with a lengthy story line sometimes.


      Any additional comments?

      Dave Barry is always good for a laugh but the two serious essays regarding 9/11 are reminders that he can be a very fine, thoughtful, and inciteful author.

      "Boogers are good"

      Not as good as money secrets, but still really funny and inovative.
      Dave Berry is a genuis and Dick Hill is a great and talented reader
