I haven't read this book yet, but I love the rest of his books. Even though I'm 13; I know a good author when I see one. My Grandfather has all of his books and one summer I got bored and started reading them. Now in my English I class we have to research our favorite author and I chose him. Ilaugh so hard at them I can't read his books during school or after tests. He is one of the greatest humorests I have ever witnesed. My favorite one of his books is "Rubber Legs, and White tail Feathers". I may be a little biased because it was the first one I read, but still. I laughed so hard I had to go out and sit on the swing in the backyard to read.

I've read all of Patrick F. McManus' books but one, and it seems to me that though his humor is geared towards middle-aged men, he still attracts just as many youths. You will not soon find humor like McManus' anywhere else. His unique style and finess streak off the pages very fluidly as he relates stories of the blunders of his childhood and everyday life as an aging man. Upon reading any of McManus' stories, I can't help but "guffaw", or have "tears of mirth course down my cheeks". His writing is very funny, I haven't yet met anyone who did not concur. Some of my favorite stories by him include "As the Ear is Bent", "Mean Tents", "Never Cry Arp", and "The Two-Wheeled ATV". One of my favorite books by him is "The Deer on the bicycle. I suggest anyone planning on divulging in McManus to read this book, as it will help you to better understand his very mirthful writing style.
So if you're interested in picking up a great source of laughter, pick up Patrick F. McManus. If you've spent most of your life in the outdoors, then you will be wiping tears from your eyes and bruising your knees (if you can put the book down long enough). Once you begin to read McManus, I can guarantee you won't stop until you've exhausted his entire supply of short stories.
