Review

Dave runs American history through the wringer, and comes up with some wonderfully warped formulations. (The Vikings, for example, "were extremely rugged individuals whose idea of a fun time was to sail over and set fire to England, which in those days was fairly easy to ignite because it had a very high level of thatch, this being the kind of roof favored by the local tribespeople...") Covering pre-Columbian days through the dawn of the Bush administration, Dave Barry Slept Here is the funniest thing to hit this great nation since the Smoot-Hawley Tariff of 1930.

Short Desription

If you love to laugh, if you love your country, if you are unaware that "the Sixth Amendment states that if you are accused of a crime, you have the right to a trial before a jury of people too stupid to get out of jury duty," Dave Barry Slept Here is the book for you. Every single momentous event and crucial movement is covered, including:


  • The Birthing Contractions of a Nation
  • Kicking Some British Butt
  • The Forging of a Large, Wasteful Bureaucracy
  • The Civil War: A Nation Pokes Itself in the Eyeball
  • The Fifties: Peace, Prosperity, Brain Death
  • The Reagan-Bush Years: Napping Toward Glory
  • And much more!
