I love Bill Bryson's writing, although this isn't my very favorite. This book is a series of columns he wrote describing his return from England to American life for a British magazine. The length of the columns makes this a quick read, but gives Bill an Andy Rooney cranky-old-man quality, athough I'll say it's like Andy Rooney back when I thought he was funny.

it was one of the funniest books i've read in a long time... chapters individual, so that you can enjoy in small chunks of time... it's a humorous look at American's and the American way of life.... I can't wait to read another by him.... excellent entertainment..

Still the best travel writer I know of. This particular book is especially good because it is free of his one typical flaw---vulgarity.
