"A very funny book...It is outrageous; it mocks contemporary American mores; it mocks Madison Avenue; it mocks racial attitudes; it mocks writers like me; and it even mocks sportswriters for Sports Illustrated like Dan Jenkins...[Jenkins's] writing and his ear recall--there is no higher compliment-Ring Lardner, though in different times and different Americas."
