This was one of the funniest books I've ever heard. The tears were rolling from my eyes as I tried to look like I was paying attention to the road while driving. This is definitely NOT the book to hear while you're sitting through a boring lecture or after you've eaten too many stewed prunes! Viva le "guy"!
You know Dave Barry. If you appreciate Mr. Barry's humor,
this is among the best.
I loved it. Most guys I know loved it.
I think women will love it, but hey, "Who Cares!"
Who in their right mind would abridge a book like this! It's one of the funniest books I've ever read - and I always loan to women friends who are having guy problems, they laugh and they learn. After all, the best humor has a lot of truth in it. Abridging this is like cutting out half of a joke and still expecting to be funny. I guess it's my fault. I was so happy to see this audiobook available that I didn't stop to check to see if it was abridged. Don't do it mon!
This book is single handedly responsible for preventing at least one break-up. We were on a 5 hour drive to a wedding and the ride did not start well. Both of us were in horrendous moods and we had not even finished putting the bags in the car. 15 minutes into the drive there was a plea to shut-up! I took the phone, downloaded the book, and started playing it over the radio. 30 minutes into the book we were laughing so hard that we hard we had no idea why were were fighting in the first place. We arrived at the hotel in tears from all the laughing.
This is a trick question... do I want to know more about how guys are silly?... let me think... hmmm... maybe.
Yes, listening to this book is a pleasure: tone, inflection, and the natural flow make it a fantastic experience.
Thank you for putting this book in an easy to find audio format.
Blast from the past with dated references. Still funny if you get them but ritter talks too fast and his style is so un-emphatic that he doesn’t do Barry the justice he deserves. The punch lines go amiss and I just had to grit my teeth and bear it to finish the whole thing ... I just found him so annoying...
I really like Dave but the audible loses something when read by a surrogate. Much funnier when reading myself. Got about half way through and was bored and stopped listening.
maybe a different narator?
I'm a big Dave Barry fan and was really looking forward to listening to this on a recent long car trip. But it was not as funny as I expected, partly from reading the other reviews before buying this audio book. It was quite boring and I couldn't bring myself to listen to the entire book. However, if you like stupid bathroom humor, you may like this one.
Sorry, Dave this was not one of your better books.
I couldn't stop laughing. Dave Barry is great and John Ritter delivers the material very, very well. It's only 3 hours or so, and very lighthearted, so give it a listen if you want to have a fun little diversion.
