Andy ... never better!
on November 4, 2006
I have read most all of Andy Rooney's books and was looking forward to this, his latest. I must be honest, there was a bit of doubt in my mind. I am such a fan of this man via his "60-Minutes" input on CBS, his syndicated columns, and the various books --- all leading to the question, "Does Andy have the fuel for another outstanding collection to share with us on the printed pages?" No, I wasn't questioning his ability because of his age. Mr. Rooney is ageless! He simply gets better with the added years. Since most writers seem to reach a peak and begin to lose some steam after brainstorming for so long, there was some uncalled-for doubt that he could continue on the same level as in the past. Of course, it was idiotic of me to create such needless drab in my mind. After diving into OUT OF MY MIND, I quickly realized Andy Rooney has never been better. When referring to current issues pertaining to world affairs, he presents them with honesty, as if he's simply discussing some serious "happenings" while chatting with you in the living room ... or over cups of coffee in the kitchen. When projecting some of his personal thoughts, he makes you ask, "Why didn't I think of that?" Andy Rooney is needed as never before. He speaks our language! OUT OF MY MIND, like his other works, simply makes the day a lot better.
