9780140131727: Not That You Asked...

Andy Rooney once again proves why he is one of America’s favorite curmudgeons. Writing at the top of his form, Rooney covers a plethora of subjects, from getting rid of leftovers to the worst job in the world, from travel tips for the travel industry to the best hotel room he ever had.
 
Andy Rooney has an opinion on everything, and in his inimitably irreverent and crotchety style he voices here those things we’ve always wanted to say but never thought we could get away with. You’ll find yourself smiling and frowning and involuntarily bobbing your head in agreement.
 
“As television watchers know, Andrew A. Rooney is a very funny fellow. He can be even funnier in print, as Not That You Asked... aptly demonstrates.”—Associated Press
 
“The greatest thing about Andy is that he makes everyone uncomfortable—especially me.”—Don Hewitt, executive producer, 60 Minutes

From the Inside Flap:

America's best-loved curmudgeon offers a new collection of pithy insights on whatever happens to be on his mind.

From Library Journal:

This is the latest collection of essays by columnist and 60 Minutes correspondent Rooney. These one- and two-page essays, written in a light-hearted tone and offering sensible values--Rooney's hallmarks--are less formulaic than in his past books the most recent being Word for Word, LJ 2/1/87-- Ed. , but still seem similar and predictable when read collectively. The best piece is the preface, which lists 100 opinions that put Rooney's popular, often insightful sentiments in a nutshell. A small weakness is his criticism of incorrect word usage in one essay while misusing "disinterested" and "wherefore" in others. Missing here are any of the more serious pieces which have provided depth and balance to previous works. Rooney's work appeals to a broad audience, and like his past books, this one should be quite popular. Recommended.
