How many more "I-can't-believe-I'm-getting-old" humor audiobooks does the world need? Well, at least one more. Dave Barry, that witty Libertarian troubadour of truth, absolutely nails the history of his generation and captures the experience of aging with his distinctly affable voice. In hilarious detail Barry describes menus, wondering when the restaurant industry decided to print words with "letters the size of bacteria." He also reflects on the possible ramifications of such concurrent developments during his Baby Boomer childhood as the Cold War and Reddi Wip, the first aerosol food product. Listeners on either side of 50 will surely get a kick out of this production. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 99]
