You will learn, for example, that the best way to learn to fish is to build an addition to your house first. It should be big enough to hold all the nifty fishing equipment you will cart home from sporting goods stores and garage sales. McManus cheerfully guides you through the finer points of becoming a skilled garage-sale shopper, too.
Be prepared to enter a quixotic universe that works according to the laws of "synch" and marvelously loopy chains of cause and effect. The title selection takes place on an ill-fated camping trip; other selections include "Kid Brothers and Their Practical Application", and "As the Worm Squirms".

My whole family are die hard McManus fans and listen to his stories over and over. You don't have to have ever caught a fish or gone camping to find these stories funny. They are very appropriate for children as they have no swearing or sexual references. Recommended listening for the whole family!
We love Mr. McManus's Crazy Eddie stories best!
Crazy Eddie Muldoon is our favorite character.
Do not listen to this book as you drive you will laugh so hard you might not be able to see where you're going through the tears.
The reader is boring at best. This book could be funny, actually hilarious, if delivered in the comedic style in which it was written.
Lose the 1955 Disney announcer sound and replace it with a style that brings the adventures to life and I'd probably laugh until I cried...
The stories are entertaining IF you can get past the reading.
