"Harry Hurt's book is a delight. I'd always wondered what executives did when they weren't ... um ... executing. Now I know. The lesson of this book is that our nation's economy would be in better shape if corporate bigwigs did the things described herein all day and never went to work."
—P.J. O'Rourke, award-winning author of On The Wealth of Nations
"Harry Hurt goes almost stride for stride with the master, George Plimpton, as a daring amateur who will try his not-so-amateurish hand at almost anything—polo, violin playing, sky diving—and make you smile at what unpredictably went wrong."
—James Salter, author of A Sport and a Pastime
"Harry Hurt III is the real deal."
—Jim Kelly, Editorial Director, Time Inc.

—Walter Isaacson, author of Einstein: His Life and His Universe
"Harry's column about getting a custom suit in Chinatown was one of the funniest things I've ever read."
—Gael Greene, author of Insatiable: Tales from a Life of Delicious Excess
