1 Common Nonsense  Rooney, Andy
1586481444 / 9781586481445 Very Good.  
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 2002 PublicAffairs. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; jacket crisp. Only a hint of wear. 349pp. Language: English. 'He's at it again. In his inimitable style, the 60 Minutes commentator and bestselling author picks apart the stuff of our lives--from the ordinary to the extraordinary--to get to the heart of the matter. Whether it be chairs that are too small for comfort, or why Americans have trouble understanding the Koran, no subject is too small or too grand for Rooney to scrutinize. The 154 essays are, he says, a reflection of a flawed brain with a capacity for being interested in more things than it can comprehend. Hilariously funny at times, Rooney also takes a tender turn and despairs at some of the sadder aspects of American life. ... Though rambling at times, this is a funny, touching, charming work that will be welcome alongside Rooney's previous collections; his take on the annoyances and joys of humanity always hit home.'--Publishers Weekly, 2002.
