"If you meet Craig Hodgetts, it's hard not to be swept up by his general enthusiasm--not just about architecture, but about people, cars, cities, and surfing.  That gusto permeates his writings, which span nearly half a century, condenses and collected into this volume.  Divided into four categories--polemics, projects, people, and performances--the book unveils the ideas and possibilities that have influenced Hodgett's architectural work."  —Deane Madsen, Architectural Record
