"Good natured tales of free-spirited characters . . . In fact, Mr. Buffett's lighthearted endorsement of adventure is so persuasive that, upon finishing the book, many readers will be tempted to get out their maps."--The New York Times Book Review
"Buffett created his own Lake Wobegon in a place called Heatwave."--Houston Chronicle
From the Publisher
Having grown up on Jimmy Buffett's songs in the '70s, especially Margaritaville and Cheeseburger in Paradise, I read with interest his first book "Tales from Margaritaville". Not surprisingly, it had the same wonderful style and spirit of his songs--funny, original, free-spirited. It seemed to me that Jimmy Buffett was truly living--and chronicling-- the American Dream. But what I found most interesting was a story I heard during one of his first bookstore signings (in Virginia or Georgia, I think). The day of the book-signing, hundreds and hundreds of people showed up and the line snaked around several blocks. But what was truly interesting was the mix of people--teenagers, aging hippies, moms and dads, blue-haired old ladies--all proud to call themselves "Parrotheads". Buffett's new book "A Pirate Looks at Fifty" is currently a bestseller proving that Jimmy Buffett's appeal is as timeless as he is.
