Book Description:

"Takes readers on a head-shaking romp through a south Florida that they won't find in any tourist brochure. . . . Hiaasen's writing is fearless and the targets endless: politicians, municipal employees, judges, lobbyists, zoning boards, evangelists, athletic franchises, environmental scofflaws, Disney, the NRA, Big Tobacco. . . . Pulls no punches and keeps his sense of humor and outrage firmly intact."--Publishers Weekly

 

"These sharp, amusing pieces confirm Hiaasen's status as a bird so rare--the humorous popular novelist with an acutely critical social perspective--that he's practically an endangered species."--Kirkus Reviews

"He writes about politics and politicians, crime and criminals, ordinary people and extraordinary people, and a lot of just plain south Florida weirdness. . . . Along with Kick Ass, this is one of the best collections of occasional journalism published in recent years."--Booklist (starred review)
