This book presents a new collection of writings by one of America's favourite commentators. Every Sunday evening in America, millions of viewers tune into 60 Minutes to hear Andy Rooney riff on everything from coffee percolators to the state of the union. Why? Because Rooney tells it like it is. But Rooney fans have never seen him quite like this. Andy Rooney is plain frustrated by what's going on in America and the world. Why can't Americans - let alone their President - speak English anymore? How does America expect to fight a terrorist enemy which can't be located? And when did capitalism go so terribly wrong? This book isn't all heady stuff though. Readers will also get Rooney's hysterical gripes about everyday foibles such as the impossibility of locating your driving license, of buying a genuinely healthy breakfast cereal, or of enjoying a college reunion. This is PublicAffairs' fifth collaboration with Andy Rooney, and it will be welcomed by his fans, and anyone who enjoys a laugh at life's little absurdities.

Readers will also get the familiar-and hysterical-Rooney gripes about everyday foibles, such as the impossibility of physically locating your driver's registration, of purchasing a genuinely healthy breakfast cereal, or of enjoying a college reunion-unless everyone ends up in their nighties, that is. PublicAffairs is pleased to present its fifth collaboration with Andy ...
