"One of the most entertaining and funny books I've read. Also, the chapters are very short."

Wonderful, witty, Bill Bryson

Along with "Notes from a Small Island," this book started me on Bill Bryson, who has made me laugh out loud even where that's a bit embarrassing and given me pause to reflect on our culture. Read this and go on to his books about language and cosmology.

Bill's no stranger

Bill Bryson is quite simply one of my favorite writers. He is a tremendous humorist--especially when you're reading one of his non-fiction books and he suddenly makes a pithy observation that is incredibly hilarious and yet true.. This particular book, written as an memoir of an American who was overseas for 20 years, and then returned home to take a look around, is very intelligent, observant and as I noted above, filled with bits of lovely humor. I own this book and I would recommend it or any of his books.
