If you are a Dave Barry fan, and who isn't, reading this book will be a true pleasure to you. Dave Barry's perspective and ability to provide interesting people and places to read about are, IMHO, without peer.
If a statistical study of Dave Barry's books were done I know that it would reveal that an average page of a Dave Barry book contains 4.7 laughs for the reader.
Put this together with the fact that laughter is the best medicine and it indicates that, for your own good, you should read this book. Of course this statement only confirms what you already know.
ENJOY

A mash-note to all things Ticky Tacky Florida, Barry visits the Weeki Wachee Mermaids and goes ahunting for the Everglade's elusive skunk ape.
He also tours Cassadaga, a village full of psychics (and has his dog's fortune told), and drags his cousin off to a gun range where they proceed to shoot all manner of machine guns.
Full of photos (probably shot on Barry's own cell phone) and rated with Mold-A-Matic machines ratings (spoiler: machine guns top all), Barry's lunatic adventures provide a welcome getaway for cold Ohio winter's day.

Underwhelming. I expected more wacky incidents and characters like "Bum" Farto, the former fire chief of Key West.
