Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385258186, Paperback)

The monarchy, the movies, and everything in between is lampooned in this humorous retrospective of twentieth-century follies, foibles and fads from Canada's preeminent popular historian. Berton even ventures a look into the future, when in 2021, Chicago and New York launch the first 22-lane highways: they are designed for a speed limit of 100 mph, but traffic is so congested the limit has to be readjusted — to 15 mph.

Following the success of A Farewell to the Twentieth Century, this new volume reflects Pierre Berton's knack for knowing just what will tickle the funny bones of his diehard fans.
