Mainly a collection of articles from Fred’s website, but the book also contains some earlier magazine work. Top piece must be a very funny article for “Playboy” on “Soldier of Fortune” magazine: its wacky magazine staff and even wackier readers.
There is also a long well written remembrance of living with the Moonies in the seventies that reads as if part of an attempt at a book that I would have liked to read, and two military reports for “Harper’s,” on the M1 Abrams tank and the atomic u-boat USS Florida.
The rest is Fred’s very un-PC ranting against the modern world, interspersed with lyrical memories of a redneck youth.
I’ve read two of Fred’s books, “Curmudgeing through Paradise” and this one, which I’ll call clearly the better of the two. But, unless you are very fearful of the thought police, or must agree with all Fred's ideas to enjoy them, they’re both a fun read. ( )
