Summary
"Comedian and "Live from Here" head writer Tom Papa, author of Your Dad Stole My Rake, tackles the modern condition in a warm (and clean) group of short essays. Exploring his favorite topics-how people really live in modern America and what's truly good and wonderful about our lives-You're Doing Great features 75 quick-take essays, including: You Don't Have to Live Your Best Life Don't Open the Mail I'm So Baked I'm Going to Mars-If My Wife Will Let Me Don't Go Tubing Shut Up and Eat From You're Doing Great: Life isn't perfect. As these pages will show, my life is far from perfect. There have always been problems and there always will be. You can engage politically, you can fight for the things you believe in, you can work really, really hard, but you shouldn't lose track of the fact that while we're doing all that, life is flying by at lightning fast speed. We live in an amazing time filled with airplanes, scooters, and peanut butter cups. We have air conditioning, blenders, and martini shakers. It's time to refocus, enjoy it all, and realize that you're doing great"-- Provided by publisher.

Combining wit and journalistic detail, Emergency follows Strauss' search for an escape plan from the seemingly ever-more unstable United States and world, eventually obtaining a second citizenship in a small Caribbean island. Facing shady lawyers, cult leaders, crippling doubts, governmental corruption, and plane-flying, gun-toting billionaires along the way, Strauss casts light upon today's heart of darkness and learns the skills it seems are needed to be a true survivor in this brave new world.--Border's UK website

Summary
Starting out in Lebanon, Kansas--the geographical centre of America--journalist Steve Boggan did just that by setting free a ten-dollar-bill and accompanying it on an epic journey for thirty days and thirty nights through six states across 3,000 miles armed only with a sense of humor and a small, and increasingly grubby, set of clothes. As he cuts crops with farmers in Kansas, pursues a repo-woman from Colorado, gets wasted with a blues band in Arkansas and hangs out at a quarterback's mansion in St Louis, Boggan enters the lives of ordinary people as they receive--and pass on--the bill. What emerges is a chaotic, affectionate and funny portrait of the real modern-day America.
