Very nice hardcover, gentle use. Smoke free home.
Cole admits that he misses the smell of the Christmas tree as a child, as well as the carols, but disdains the greed also associated with the holiday.

Authors quoted include Karl Menninger, Richard Bach, Benjamin Franklin, Upton Sinclair, George Bernard Shaw, P.G. Wodehouse, Henny Youngman, Ralph Waldo Emerson, P.J. O'Rourke, Hilaire Belloc, Dick Gregory, James Thurber, Shirley Temple, Ogden Nash, Art Buchwald, H.L. Mencken, and John Steinbeck, among others.

Criticized, as for one, is the practice of gift-giving among adults, where we live in fear that someone we've left out will give us a present and it will be too late to give one back (Pg. 4). Another quote suggest that Christmas ia a holiday that persecutes the lonely, the frayed, and the rejected. (Pg. 11) A great book for persons who don't like Christmas, or for those wanting a contrary perspective. An interesting collection of quotes, blurbs, poems, short stories, comic bits, etc... all centered around the 'grumpy' side of Christmas.

Ebenezer Scrooge is the cover-story lead grump,and so we get an ironically negative through all-out bashing of the holiday season and the comical and frustrating situations that may arise during the Yuletide.

Good if you need a laugh or are eager to get the season over with!
