A brilliantly funny look at the tumultuous recent past from the Pulitzer Prizeawinning humorist.
Remember when everything was going to go to hell when Y2K struck?
That didnat happen. Right?
But what did happen? To provide a little perspective on a really messed-up millennium (so far), the one and only Dave Barry slips into his historianas robe (itas plush terrycloth) and revisits the defining moments in our countryas recent historyafrom the Bush years toa]jeez, itas still the Bush years As an added bonus, Barry quicklyaweare busy hereatosses in the complete history of the "last" millennium, covering crucial turning points such as the invention of the pizza by Leonardo da Vinci and the computer by Charles Babbage (who died in 1871 still waiting to talk to tech support).
Fellow Americans, the time has come to bone up with Barry as he puts the "hysterical" in history.
