A brilliantly funny exploration of the Sunshine State
from the man who knows it best: Pulitzer Prize winner and
New York Timesâ€“bestselling author Dave Barry.
We never know what will happen next in Florida. We know only
that, any minute now, something will.
Every few months, Dave Barry gets a call from some media
person wanting to know, â€śWhat the hell is wrong with
Florida?â€ť Somehow, the stateâ€™s acquired an image as a
subtropical festival of stupid, and as a loyal Floridian,
Dave begs to differ. Sure, there was the 2000 election. And
people seem to take their pants off for no good reason. And
it has flying insects the size of LeBron James. But it is a
great state, and Dave is going to tell you why. Join him as
he celebrates Florida from Key West at the bottom to
whatever it is thatâ€™s at the top, from the Sunshine Stateâ€™s
earliest history to the fun-fair of weirdness that it is today.
Itâ€™s the most hilarious book yet from â€śthe funniest damn
writer in the whole countryâ€ť (Carl Hiaasen, and he should
know). By the end, youâ€™ll have to admit that whatever else
you might think about Floridaâ€”you can never say itâ€™s boring.
