display_description A brilliantly funny look at the tumultuous recent past from the Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist.
Remember when everything was going to go to hell when Y2K struck?
That didn't 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 historian's robe (it's plush terrycloth) and revisits the defining moments in our country's recent history. As an added bonus, Barry quickly—we're busy here—tosses 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.
