Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This book consists of over 100 fairly recent selections from the syndicated humor column that Kornheiser writes for the Sunday Washington Post. Kornheiser's gift as a humorist, honed over long experience, is such that he can make a story out of nothing and out of everything like buying something from infomercial pitchman Ron Popeil, wishing Bob Dole would shut up, attending a "guys only" high school reunion, or smearing his head with Rogaine (his previous collection of columns was Bald As I Wanna Be). L'Affaire Lewinsky and the Al Gore/George Bush election occupy a good portion of the book. Kornheiser keeps the reader in a more or less chucklesome mood most of the time, but even the best collections of newspaper columns lose something of their flavor and immediacy when put in book form, and this is no exception a lot of the material is old hat. Even so, the humorous invention provides considerable mirth, and the book, dipped into at judicious intervals, will help at a time when the national funny bone could stand some vigorous tickling.

Review

I’m Back for More Cash shows off the versatility, the wit and the self-deprecating style that have made his humor columns for the Post so popular.” —Associated Press

“A hoot . . . In bites of a thousand words or less, Kornheiser offers happenin’ zingers from the turn of the century, complete with rimshots and all the brio of Henny Youngman.” —Kirkus Reviews

The T-Man from W-town, dude makes like George Lucas, reviving clauh-sic old material to finance frivolous hobbies like exterminating racoons and woodpeckers in his chimney.

Tony Kornheiser reissuing his mildly amusing columns in book form for the American public: Classic!
Tony Kornheiser consistently shilling his wares ad nausem to the point of submission: Not Classic!
I was flipping through the channels a couple of months ago when I landed on a show called "Pardon the Interruption" (heretofore known as PTI). I found myself captivated by the orange talking head we all know as Tony. His sparring sessions with Michael Wilbon were so entertaining, I automatically set the TiVo to tape this show every day so when I got home from work, I could see these two bicker until their heads spin.
About a month later, I found Tony's show on ESPN Radio. This show is even better than the PTI show, because it's just Tony whining and complaining about every little thing (similar to another person I'm a big fan of, David Letterman, except in a more incessant, New Yorker tone). Finding out that Mr. Tony is also a fellow displaced Long Islander, I became an instant fan.
I also noticed that Tony had three books in publication. I've read two of them (Bald As I Wanna Be and Pumping Irony), and I found them to be endlessly entertaining, albeit a little dated. I'm sure some of these columns from "I'm Back For More Cash" (credit Denis Horgan, Jr. for that one) will seem a little dated (I mean, how long ago was that Clinton stuff?), but I'm sure you'll still be able to find a laugh in every page, like Larry King did in "Bald as I Wanna Be" (Which I'm still fact checking to see if his recommendation might have been a little flawed).
And since Mr. Tony has consistently shilled his book on his radio program, you have no choice but to purchase this book. He's brainwashed us all. The next thing he'll want you to do is buy merchandise with his name on it... Oh wait, it's too late!
Get this book, because you should be entertained by it. Rack it. I'm out.

Most people like to curl up to a new book... I, on the other hand, like to curl my toes up to a new book... ALL 12 OF THEM! So pop a scone in the toaster, leave your worries of apocalyptic icebergs behind and take those [dollars] you had earmarked for that Perfect Pancake or 8 cans of Campbell's soup to buy this book!

Once again Toby presents his outlook on the Washington D.C. political scene, his family and other subjects too weird to mention. This book will have a permanent place in the bathroom. The book is well done but sometimes the lines and paragraphs don't line up right. I hate it when that happens.

Yes, once again, the Washington Post's choleric, aging, but never say die sports columnist and former "Style" section columnist collects the best of his pieces from the Post. Actually, "best" may be a misnomer, since that implies "worst," of which there is none. Always funny, and often totally hilarious, Tony finds humor in the day-to-day insanities we all face, only his "rage against the machine" is fun to read. This book isn't just for the bathroom, you can even put it in your living room and let your friends read it. They'll be better for the experience, but watch out, as I've learned Tony's books tend to disappear if you turn your back.

I was at my local borders bookstore looking for this book but noticed that it was not in stock. From out of nowhere, an orange faced cape-wearing bald man appeared and saw me on the wing going to the counter to ask for help regarding the book. Screaming out of his cape came a behind-the-back pass of the book that landed softly in my well-manicured right hand. I easily laid the book up on the counter and paid for it with the greatest of ease. As I was exiting out of the book store, I pointed at the caped curmudgeon --- AFFIRMATION!!!!
