It’s Valentine’s Day. And we could have done the usual mushy, romantic stuff, but instead I wanted to go more tongue in cheek .
Back in 1994 I interviewed the popular self-help author Karen Salmansohn. She had just written a book called how to make your man behave in 21 days or less using the secrets of professional dog trainers.
Really, how much more romantic can you get?
But you know, as much as I hate to admit it, behind every incisive piece of humor. There is a nugget of truth. As I think you’ll find out right now.
So here now, from 1994, Karen Salmansohn/
Karen Salmansohn’s most recent book, Instant Calm, was published in 2019.
If he had wanted to, Dave Berry probably could have been a successful stand-up comedian.
Instead, he wrote a humor column. And wrote books. Lots and lots of books.
Over about a 20-year period, I think I interviewed Dave almost 20 times.
Two of those interviews stand out, including the one you’re about to hear. It was for his book Dave Barry Turns 40. I thought it was an appropriate interview to run, because tomorrow, July 3rd, is David’s birthday.
So here now, from 1990, Dave Barry.
Dave Barry is a little older than 40 now in fact tomorrow and will be his 74th birthday. His last book was published in 2019.
