"Two Scoops" Is Just Right could easily have been named "Seventy Eight Scoops" Is Just Right in that this book offers far more than simply Vanilla and Chocolate. In his 78 short stories, Alex Carrick, offers so many additional flavors and he does so with the humor of Erma Bombeck, the wry observations of Andy Rooney and the simplicity of Mark Twain.
His funny, tongue-in-cheek stories cover everything from "The Frightening World of Drug Disclaimers" to "A Mathematical Proof that Economists Are Sexy". Some of the stories will make you make you laugh out loud, some will make you smile and some will make you say hmmm. There is something in this book for everyone regardless of whether you are Canadian or American.
As I read the book, I was brought back to those wonderful days when, as a teen visiting my uncle, I would read the ever present Reader's Digest. "Bathroom reading" he called it and I knew he was referring to the fact that each article was just about the right size to accompany a visit to the john. Each chapter in "Two Scoops" is just about the right size too.
If you want a good laugh buy this book, read this book, then buy one for a friend.
