"Boogers Are My Beat" is a collection of columns by Dave Barry. Barry has always had a way of describing the human experience in such a way to make us grin and point out the foibles of the powerful in a polite way. HOWEVER, I found that while I want more and more Barry after reading a Sunday column, 5 CDs worth of columns required a break and a change of pace so I could complete it.

The end of the book takes two separate looks at 9/11 and shows quite effectively that Barry can be serious when he needs to be without any loss of his talent at describing the human condition.

Narrator Dick Hill has a talent for reading funny material without going over the top, and was a good choice to read the book on CD.

RATING: 4 stars.
