Best. State. Ever.

A Florida Man Defends His Homeland

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

A brilliantly funny exploration of the Sunshine State from the man who knows it best: Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times–bestselling author Dave Barry.
 
We never know what will happen next in Florida. We know only that, any minute now, something will.
Every few months, Dave Barry gets a call from some media person wanting to know, “What the hell is wrong with Florida?” Somehow, the state’s acquired an image as a subtropical festival of stupid, and as a loyal Floridian, Dave begs to differ. Sure, there was the 2000 election. And people seem to take their pants off for no good reason. And it has flying insects the size of LeBron James. But it is a great state, and Dave is going to tell you why. Join him as he celebrates Florida from Key West at the bottom to whatever it is that’s at the top, from the Sunshine State’s earliest history to the fun-fair of weirdness that it is today.
 
It’s the most hilarious book yet from “the funniest damn writer in the whole country” (Carl Hiaasen, and he should know). By the end, you’ll have to admit that whatever else you might think about Florida—you can never say it’s boring.

From the Hardcover edition.

Customer Reviews

Laugh out loud funny

Being a native Floridian who ran as far away from home as I could as fast as I could I have to say that Dave nailed it. This book is everything you may or may not want to know about "America's Outback".
God I miss it. No, not really.
But I digress.
This book is gut busting hilarious whether you lived or vacationed in Florida or even if you've never been there or even know exactly where it is.
One question-Dave are you and Carl the same person or did he peek at your notes? You both came out with a book on the same day and both books include the same zany characters...
Take it from me, Bernice, skip "Razor Girl" and go straight to "Best State Ever".

You won't regret it.

So.Funny! Does not disappoint!

I've been reading Dave Barry columns for about 20 years now. He is just an amazingly funny guy and a fantastic humor writer. This book made me laugh so hard when reading in bed that I ended up reading several parts aloud to my husband, so that he would stop giving me the stink eye. He always cracked up too. Definitely a good book to make you laugh when you need it!

Best State Ever

Another wonderful Dave Barry "entertainment."
