Publisher's Summary

America's most hilarious sportsman returns with this collection of insights about youth, the great outdoors, and the philosophy of fileting fish. When best-selling author Patrick McManus looks at a subject, you're sure to come away with an outrageously new perspective.

In "Muldoon in Love" McManus examines how third-grade crushes can have a disastrous effect on show-and-tell. In "The Big Fix" he explores the insidious relationship between women and flat tires. In "What's in a Name, Moonbeam?" he welcomes into the world a new grandchi ... er ... a new small relative.

Norman Dietz's droll narration of these and two dozen more adventures by the author of How I Got This Way and The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw will have listeners - and maybe even a wolf or two - howling.

McManus again delights with his trademark wit

Patrick McManus is, in my mind, a national treasure. These collections of stories are a guaranteed grin for hours on end. This collection is no exception. I cannot recommend it more highly.

My only question is why we have not seen this turned in to a TV show?

Buy the book if you enjoy laughing.

First McManus I ever read

My grandfather gave me this book years ago, and I have read everything McManus has written since. If you don't laugh, you may be in serious trouble...

Not funny

Narrator was fine; but this book does not have the quality of humor as McManus' other books. My husband and I were put off. I'd return this.

Laughed so hard I cried!

I was laughing so hard at work in the service area that I had to turn off my iPod because customers out front thought I had lost my mind! Fun!

Stupid, but Funny

Gotta' love McManus for his dumb sense of humor that will still make one laugh. I think his books have more appeal for those who love being out-of-doors, but I am not a fisherman or hunter and still enjoy his books.

Boring. Unable to finish.

We tried. We listened for 45 minutes hoping it would become entertaining, but it did not. Equate the entertainment level to listening to your odd uncle who repeats the same stupid joke over and over for 45 years. It may have been mildly funny the first time, but after that, it's just pathetic.
