KIRKUS REVIEW

A posthumous collection of America's constant critic which again reveals the sources of his irritations, the mechanics of his frustrations, his response to possible and impossible situations. This is Benchley on nature's slipshod and bungling ways, on governmental red tape and bureaucratic double-talk, on the animal and mechanical worlds, on modern education, and the unlimited possibilities of travel, in and out of household and domestic quandaries, reporting on books and analyzing reports --and on and on and much more of it.
