Editorial Reviews

Review

"Punctuated by moments of brilliant iconoclasm, as well as profound questions for our age."
--
San Francisco Chronicle

"Thompson is a genuinely unique figure in American journalism, a superb comic writer and a ferociously outspoken social and political critic."
--
The Washington Post

"You can't help but be glad that when it all hit the fan, Hunter S. Thompson was working the Sports Desk."
--
The New York Sun

"This compilation...has fear and loathing in it, of course, but beneath its ornery doomsday facade is a message of hope: What happens in the stadiums and field houses of America is probably beyond your control, but what happens in the city councils and statehouses is up to you."
--
Playboy
