A collection of writing from one of Australia's best loved and most highly regarded journalists. 'Life is short and we best take full advantage of it. And there is nothing better in this world than seeing your team get up after the siren.' Whether he was writing about Australian rules or the rules of politics, Bob Dylan or Sherbet, his high school reunion or the Big Brother controversies, the late reporter Matt Price did it with humour, wit and a rare wisdom. Here, in a collection of some of his liveliest columns filed over the last decade, he tackles issues both big and small with the flair which made him one of the country's best journalists.
