The first of these collections of Rooney's satirical TV pieces and syndicated newspaper columns ``can be moving, as in `D-Day,' or can fall flat, as in `The Faces of Christ,' which is maudlin,'' said PW . The second, an anthology of only his newspaper work that discusses topics from faulty home appliances and dieting to cliches and celebrity endorsements, is more successful: ``Every entry is trenchant and telling and, best of all, fun to read.''
