Humorist Dave Barry uses a conversational style and an even pace to deliver his collection of humorous wit, wisdom, and advice on life, travel, children, parenting, and more. He seamlessly transitions through hilarious reflections regarding his 15-year-old daughter's 2015 driving learner's permit, how-to projects, his love of soccer, traveling to Brazil for the World Cup, and his trip to Russia (although the essay on Russia is long and tedious). Older listeners will enjoy his smart portrayal of generational parenting skills, which contrasts past generations who didn't fret over their children with modern parents who do. He draws listeners emotionally close when he reads the poignant letter to his newborn grandson that completes this well-done audiobook, more in tune with yesteryear than today.
