Also on this special compilation: Andy's last 60 MINUTES commentary and the last interview he ever gave, featuring the story of his life as told by Morley Safer.

About a decade ago, I began tuning in to "60 Minutes" just to get Andy Rooney's wisdom of the week. He had a solution for everything - why shoelaces are the way they are. The logic of how many peanuts are packaged and marketed in a can. I took notes on his evaluation of "lemon-enhanced" consumer products that actually have no lemon.

Without Andy, I would never have known that automotive companies have design teams that focus on the sound of a car door closing, and the sound of a car's horn.

To me, Andy was the leader who taught us to "read between the lines" of life experience and exposure. I now diligently read labels because of Andy.

Andy was a brilliant writer, correspondent and un-intentional educator of American cultural literacy. I will always miss him.

As video collections go, I would add this DVD set to the bookshelf of classics like Plato, Homer and Socrates. Well, I just did that.

I'll probably watch this DVD presentation at least twice-a-year.

Money well-spent.

It is a nice tribute to Andy Rooney - however it is not something that you set down to and watch both discs on the same day. We watch it mainly on Sunday nights after 60 Minutes just to get our A R Fix!!!!

Andy Rooney covers the full gamut of topics which goes from funny to serious. Some say that he was unnecessary on the show, but, I'm so thankful that the producer had the great intelligence to include him in every show. He was our inner voice - he spoke about things that many of us would have liked to complain about. He expressed our feelings towards different subjects like terrorism or the war in Iraq. And then on the next show he could be incredibly silly. Andy Rooney was an American, decent, witty, and our kind of person. Because he honestly shared himself with us and never failed to be great, I gave the collection 5 stars.

However, the organization of the DVD leaves a lot to be desired. The topics are organized in categories and the categories are all numbered. However, each episode is not distinguished from the others in that category making it impossible to go directly to a favorite episode. Once you get to that category, you have to fast forward until you get to your episode that you would like to view. Each DVD is 2 hours long bringing the collection to a total of 4 hours of viewing. And I believe that another reviewer brought up the point that more of his earlier work could have been included. Perhaps CBS will release an additional DVD containing more material. Let's hope so.

If you liked Andy Rooney, you will most definitely like this collection. It's wonderful and it feels like home just hearing his voice again. I wish he could have lived much, much longer.

The Best of Andy Rooney, well that should just say it all right there. He is a journalist missed by many of us. Yet this dvd will bring him back to life.
