Although the tecnology has changed, the sentiment hasn't and I really enjoyed his amazing intolerance for machines. I could have lived quite happily without the grammerphiles of AOL story but otherwise, a nice little while away the time.

Extreme sarcasm and satire makes this one not so funny. The cyber romance, though was well done. I'm sure it would be better had Dave Barry been the narrator of the audio book. ( )

A very silly look at the world of computers. Dave Barry fans will probably enjoy it, as will people who like to read old computer books and howl with laughter at how times have changed. (I can't be the only one who does that.) ( )

I love Dave Barry books, but this was his worst.
  benjfrank | Jan 4, 2007 |
This is not one of Dave Barry's better books. It has the usual pages and paragraphs that send you into hysterics, but the world of technology laughed at in the book is so antiquated that many of the jokes feel old. Pair that with his unsuccessful attempt to make the same jokes funny throughout the book (which he accomplishes in some others), and you have a lesser Barry book. Give one of his other's a shot. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0517595753, Hardcover)

Trust Dave Barry, middle-class America's chronicler of the absurdities and inanities of daily life, to provide the authoritative funnyman's guide to life with computers. Barry is sometimes insightful, as when he notes the ridiculous number of keystrokes needed to actually write something, often hilarious, as in his sendup of technological support hotlines, and occasionally genuinely indignant. This book is the perfect gift for anyone who, like many of us, can't live with computers and can't live without them.

If ever a subject was made for an author, Dave Barry and cyberspace are perfectly matched. Just imagine what can happen when Dave and his computer go mano a mano. In Dave Barry in Cyberspace, you'll learn how to produce attractive, high-impact documents when you have absolutely nothing to say; visit the world's largest computer trade show - Nerdstock in the desert; use Internet shorthand; chat with total strangers who may be boring and stupid; and discover the world's largest collection of viola jokes - all this and more. When you rattle down the pothole-studded information superhighway with Dave Barry at the wheel, you will be a:) and you will be LOL, even ROTFL.… (more)
