Dave Barry, a world-esteemed author who wrote several award-winning bestsellers, is back with Best. State. Ever. - a super-funny, bright, brisk and bold exploration of Florida from a man who loves and appreciates the state. We don't really know what's gonna happen in the Sunshine State at a given moment. We might think that we do, but we really don't. All we can do is guess and second-guess. Every once in a while, Mr. Barry gets a call asking him what the f**k is wrong with Florida?
For some unknown reason, people see it as the one and only place in America where all the stupid and crazy go to mess around. Dave, being a loyal resident of the state, can't allow the rumors to ruin the reputation of Florida, so, he's set to convince everybody that Flo is one of the greatest American states. Yes, true, there are a lot of strange, crazy and just ridiculous people walking around in Florida, and you've got pretty scary (and huge) insects flying around like it's their own land.
But still, you'll have the best time of your life there - all it takes is for you to notice all the great stuff that Florida's famous for. Best. State. Ever. is a celebration of the state, an honest, open "investigation" into its most amazing features and a very funny, warm and kind book to read on a quiet Friday night. It might be a fun-fair, but that's actually a part of Florida's charm, it's trademark.
At the end of the day, no matter what you think about the Sunshine State, one thing is certain: nobody ever called it regular or boring, simply because it's not! The critics are calling Dave Barry the funniest writer in modern-day America, and his latest book is arguably the most hilarious one ever! If you're a fan of his work, you'll definitely have a great time with Best. State. Ever. - guaranteed.
