Once again we are blessed with yet another collection of Jim Foster's ravings. His first book, I hate to complain, but...with its views on everything from bank mergers to the author's 30-year love affair with Sophia Loren, is being hailed as a classic example -- though of what no one is quite sure. Readers will be amazed at the depth of the author's knowledge on just about any subject and his total inability to keep it to himself. What should you do if a comet falls on you at 1000 mph? What are the best pick-up lines for the man or woman looking for romance? Why doesn't Julia Roberts shave her underarms? All this and many other bits of useless information will have Canadians from coast to coast chuckling out loud, popping their eyes in wonder and simply scratching their heads in bewilderment.
Jim Foster is an award-winning humour columnist for the Orillia Packet and Times, the Collingwood Enterprise-Bulletin, and even the Oro Medonte Severn News. He was a contributing writer for the Dave Broadfoot TV specials "Old Enough to Say What I Want" and "Old Dog, New Tricks," and a gag writer for Playboy magazine. Foster is also a public speaker and has delivered his slightly warped message of hope and inspiration to audiences all over central Ontario.
