Review - A Supremely Bad Idea
I got the distinct impression that I wouldn't like any of these three people. They're knee-jerk liberals who condemn anybody who doesn't feel exactly the way they do on any issue, especially environmental ones, while at the same time, they jet and drive around the country, staying in the motels and eating in the restaurants that are part of the urban sprawl they condemn. While occasionally mildly clever, they are never as funny as they think they are. The book is filled with inside jokes that would only be funny to the three of them, like an often-repeated bit on why the author doesn't like tomatoes. They all claim not to be "listers" — horrors! But they keep track of lifers and talk about how many birds they've seen all through the book. Which means they are listers. Just not good ones.
