Book Title: I'll Mature When I'm Dead

Author: Dave Barry

Book Description:

This book was authored by Dave Barry, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist; I have enjoyed his work for many years.  Barry writes about various topics including the United States health care system, medical procedures, relationships, and politics.  As a humorist, he uses sarcasm and parody as tools to provide fresh insight into serious topics. I selected this book because I have a tendency to approach life too seriously. Sometimes, I need to be reminded not to fret over the small stuff, re-prioritize the things that are really important, and have more fun.  Dave Barry's book reminds me to stop taking myself so seriously and laugh about the absurdities encountered in the world each day.
