Book Description

More outrage and sediton from the internet's leading curmudgion. Sardonic, funny, savagely irreverent, Fred trounces everything and everybody except children, drunks, and bar girls, for whom he has a soft spot. He also likes dogs. This is the man who who described Oprah Winfrey as looking like "five hundred pounds of bear liver in a plastic bag." A former Marine and war correspondent, he loathes war, the Pentagon, and the military budget, and thinks the Marines can do the world a favor by staying home. Dentists like this book as it makes people grind their teeth, but they also applaud. He asserts that after he writes about feminists, Republicans, Democrats, evangelical Christians, or atheists, a lynch mob forms outside his house in Mexico, but he may be stretching the truth a bit. In case he isn't, you may want to buy a rope before ordering A Grand Adventure.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Stylist December 26, 2012
By Rick B.

Fred Reed is one of the finest stylists writing in English today. If you haven't read any of his work you owe it to yourself.
This book is another collection of personal memoir and scurrilous commentary on American life.

He tells it like things are. He's been there, done that, and has way too many shirts. This is a nice bit of the mystical and magical Fred Reeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now with more snark! May 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
If you've been a 'Fred' reader, then there's no surprise here. Just dive in and enjoy. If it's your first time, leave the room, put your sacred cows in the stable and then start reading. He exposed the politically sensitive, the false fronts, the feet of clay of many ideas and institutions, and leaves you thinking.

5.0 out of 5 stars A grand book January 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
Mr. Reed is a great observer of llife. The problem is that he thinks of life in a logical way. He is part of a dying breed. No diversity. No political correctness. Just simple truth. His columns are geared to the searchers of truth. We literate that can still remember when books were the best friends. When the lobotomy box still had some intelligence. This book is the greatest adventure of them all - Knowledge. it will keep the ignorant away. It is an amazing book written by an amazing man. Mr. Reed was given the gift and curse of Casandra by the Gods. The gift was the gift of prophecy and the curse no one believed her. It will make you think.

Fred's ability to cut to the heart of a matter inspires thinking (a lost art form). His ability to do so with an engaging writing style makes the process enjoyable. For anyone interested in sane thought in an insane world Fred is a must read.
