Thank You is Implied, a new collection of essays by Andrew Marx, takes on wide-ranging themes from legalizing trips to the bathroom, gambling in third-rate casinos and what it takes to make the list of the sexiest songs ever written! In his own inestimable and entertaining style, Marx skewers his sex life (been there, done that), tackles celebrity culture (et tu Brett Favre?) and even devours all-you-can-eat USDA Canner grade prime rib and lives to tell about it! Culled from a 17-year writing career and his Smart ReMarx blog, the book frames the author's humorous and unrepentant take on pop culture, sports, relationships and everything else. If you are wondering who predicted the decline of Pluto, the collapse of the economy, and the end of the All American Football League, the answers are all here. Blending news reports with reviews and opinions, each article is annotated with additional commentary, anecdotes, and explanations (and a couple of apologies) from the author. Thank You is Implied will delight long time fans and newcomers alike. Featuring one of the most unique voices to come along in the last ten years, this collection will make you laugh and leave you thinking. Every article is peppered with the sharp wit and smart remarks that have made Marx's writing completely original and thoroughly satisfying.
