5.0 out of 5 stars Andy Rooney - A Modern Philosopher, February 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Best of Andy Rooney Volumes 1 & 2 (DVD)
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.
