Brevity at its Best,
This review is from: Notes From A Big Country: Journey Into the American Dream (Mass Market Paperback)
Bryson brilliantly combines comic asides with the most serious of subjects. If you like Bryson's dry wit, you'll love this book. At first I didn't like the format (exactly four pages per chapter) but after a while I liked the thought that if I had ten minutes to spare, I could read a chapter. And new chapter, new topic. Brevity at its best.
My only regret is that I missed the columns when they appeared in The Mail on Sunday's Night and Day Magazine. Hope the editor intends to commission more soon.

Totally agree with your review - Bryson is born to write a newspaper column
