From Library Journal:

For the reader of any or all of Royko's six previous collections of essays, this volume will have few surprises to offer. The Chicago-based author has been maintaining a daily column, now syndicated in 525 newspapers, for 26 years, and what he does here is serve up some of his more memorable ones--87 in all--written between 1984 and 1989. Working within the limits of a newspaper column, Royko never wastes a word. Whether he is talking about Hefner and Guccione ("a couple of pompous, profiteering jerks"), or People magazine ("that most intellectual of publications"), or watching his local public broadcasting channel ("for their nightly installment on the sex life of insects"), he says just what he has to say, and stops. These are what variety-format newspaper columns should be: conversational, witty, laconic, neatly understated, not unserious.

From Publishers Weekly:

This sixth collection of the syndicated "Dr. Kookie" columns satirizes religious fanaticism, crime, politics and the war between the sexes. "Exuberantly cynical, this is vintage Royko," PW remarked.
