Bill Rowe, author of the critically acclaimed political drama Danny Williams: The War with Ottawa (Globe and Mail Bestseller, 2010), is back in fighting form and ready to throw a few more punches at the local, national, and world leaders who fill our lives with endless amusement and exasperation. Rowe’s newspaper columns, written between 2005 and 2007 and collected here for the first time under one cover, are a tour de force that challenge the reader to take on political lightweights and heavyweights alike, societal ills at home and abroad, and always question motives and demand answers from those in power. Peppered with the same dry wit and humour that propelled this author onto a national stage, this collection is, quite simply, a must-read.

I started to really appreciate Rowe's ability to narrow down a topic and come up with something pithy and witty to say about it, week after week.-- The Telegram --
Like any columnist worth his salt Rowe is provocative and a number of the columns deal with topics whose lessons are still relevant.-- Newfoundland Quarterly --
Rowe's columns on Williams's persona, bellicose manner and political antics truly shine. What Danny Should Do in the Crab War? (May 7, 2005) puts a delightful Shakespearian twist on Williams's strategic positioning; Is Danny a Dictator? (June 25, 2005) will stand as a classic.-- The Chronicle Herald --
A brisk read and a fine book to have in your personal library.-- The Carbonear Compass --
[Rowe] does it all, of course, with his usual blend of droll good humour and common sense.-- Globe and Mail --
With a mind – and a pen – as sharp as a paper cut, the elegant, affable Rowe remains Newfoundland's literary agent provocateur, provoking, teasing, sometimes coddling his subjects, but all the time digging towards truths that cause discomfort for the province's Whos Who and everyman alike.-- The Business Post --
