8 out of 10

Somehow Andy seems funnier on TV. This book was funny but not as funny as he is on tv.

From Publishers Weekly
Rooney, revered 60 Minutes commentator, weekly syndicated newspaper columnist, and best-selling author (most recently of Years of Minutes) delivers a collection of caustic, comic essays on topics ranging from the serious (Iraq, global warming) to the absurd (the outdated semi-colon, irritating cell phone ring tones) that proves he hasn't lost his cranky appeal. Written over the past four years, these highly opinionated and often chuckle-worthy vignettes are refreshingly candid and paint a fortified portrait of Rooney's frustrations with the state of the world. In 10 themed sections (including Daily Life, Politics and Sports), Rooney showcases his broad knowledge and voluminous gripes; though they won't dazzle the literati, Rooney's signature cynicism and stream-of-consciousness voice shine through. There is something for everyone in this collection: election junkies will find the petulant "Crab Grassroots Campaigning" particularly amusing; pack rats and recyclers alike will identify with "We're Wasting Away" (the perfect case of "sad, but true"); and those who just plain love Andy will cherish his quirky lists in "Things I Love to Hate" and "Things to Do Today." In the preface, Rooney asks himself, "How much do I have to say that anyone cares about reading?" Luckily for him-and for us-he has an entire book's worth.
