Summary
Bill Nye was a famous American humor columnist in the middle 1800's. He said "We can never be a nation of snobs so long as we are willing to poke fun at ourselves." And he did exactly that in hundreds of newspaper columns that were later collected into books. This is a selection of just 35 of the most humorous, wry and downright funny cogitations of his, written of course in the somewhat convoluted style common in the 19th century which just adds to their flavor in my opinion. The selection process was rigorous: only those that made me laugh, giggle or snort are included. (Summary by phil Chenevert)

Could not get past the reader's voice; delivery is not right for this genre. Bill Nye is a funny man though the gems are scattered.

I was able to make it past the "Directions" and through Chapters 1 & 2. I really feel that this Librivox narrator is trying to hard to make this very dry book into something more. I knew going in that this isn't a modern book on funny thoughts or sayings. Maybe, for someone who remembers this older Bill Nye, there might be enjoyment in this book. However, for me it sounded like the reading of a factual diary or an attempt at a memoir. I just couldn't stick with it.
