Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Bill O'Shaughnessy's new book is chock full of good writing, good humor . . . and wisdom! What a terrific read. Dan Rather

Reading his personal commentaries on people and the passing scene, written with casually elegant language, makes you wish the whole country was hearing or reading his work.-Governor Mario M. Cuomo

Anything Bill O'Shaughnessy touches or writes turns to gold. His new book is something I'm sure every New Yorker will want to read.-Governor George E. Pataki
