Once a year, millions of Minnesotans step out of their air conditioned homes to venture into the dusty outdoor furnace that is late August to congregate at the Minnesota State Fair. Driven by the promise of a deep fried oasis, carnival rides, and people watching, the Minnesota State Fair is a tradition for many Minnesotans, including Ben Nesvig.
In the Minnesota State Fair: Deep Fried Thoughts on Cheese Curds, Carnies, and the Human Condition, Ben Nesvig shares his stream of consciousness journey at the Minnesota State Fair with listeners as he explores everything from deep fried cookie dough, the thrill of a giant yellow slide, and ultimately, what prompts Minnesotans to make the greasy pilgrimage.

Life's too short, ride your best horse first!
I would recommend this book, as well as Ben Nesvig's First World Problems, to friends. The humor in this book is great and so easy to relate to. You easily picture and feel what is being described. That the book is read by the author adds a lot to the humor because you get exactly the tone he means to convey. Get car trip material even if I felt self conscious giggling at stop lights!
