Publisher's Summary

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.

    "usual great PJ, but PATHETIC sound quality"

    As a PJ admirer, I read this collection of old articles plus witty funny author's notes, years ago. The audiobook version is just PATHETIC, I am asking for a refund: the audio quality is so bad is it unbearable, impossible to listen. It is obviously a cassette tape remastered, and a bad job at it, anyway. First time I got screwed by Audible, after hundred of great books.

    "great and not so great"

    This one is not PJ at his best overall (and I am a confirmed fan). The earlier stuff is dated but the fishing and hunting are hilarious. Definitely worth a listen, though

    "Good content, poor audio quality"

    As a long-time fan, I was happy to see more titles form PJ, and while I enjoyed the content (yes, the hunting, fishing and automotive pieces are gems), the whole experience was marred a bit by the poor audio recording.

    MORE PJ!

    "Superb!"

    Congratulations Audible! This 6 hour audio of P J o'Rourke's satire is excellent. It is extremely funny, sometimes even sad and educational. I feel enriched by this download and already listened to it twice while driving.
