Sintesi dell'editore

P.J. O'Rourke traces his development from hippie protester to conservative grouch to jaded humorist. Along the way, we are privy to his strange, twisted days as editor in chief of National Lampoon, as well as the in-depth looks at appropriate sports for middle-aged Republicans, namely those which can be engaged in with a smuggled Havana between the teeth - fly-fishing, bird hunting, deep-sea fishing, and of course, golf. Plus, you'll hear O'Rourke's take on the Virtues of Automobiles - because what good was oil doing sitting in the ground for millions of years? - and many other hilarious rants in this off-the-wall collection by America's premier political humorist.

Excellent. He is the original Hunter S Thompson.

This is very witty and entertaining, silly and all the great things that this writer is. Wild out spoken, politically all over the place, just great.

The recording

It’s an awful recording, really bad quality just terrible. Like listening to book being read down a phone line from the 80’s

Poor recording of one of PJ's lesser books

Not my favourite O'Rourke book anyway (and. I am generally a big fan), but the recording is awful. Not a terrible performance by the reader but it sounds like it was recorded using 2 paper cups and a piece of string, and the echo / reverb sounds like someone else is reading the book half a second behind him on the other side of the room.

Coming to this after listening to PJ's latest book, recorded in 2017 and read by the author himself highlighted its deficiencies even more.

This is his worst book by far.
