"...a majestic book..." (Diarmaid Ferriter)
"...a seminal book..." (Eamon Dunphy)
"This book is autobiographical, political, subjective, detached - and utterly fascinating in its insights and conclusions" (Brendan Kennelly)
"An honest, funny, courageous book... the writer has indeed a heart with considerable idealism and passion... both calm and outrageous, funny and serious, mild and brave. Jiving at the Crossroads is one of the liveliest and most incisive books I've read this year. The book is shot through with a sense of excited and exciting discovery of many things and people... John Waters is one of the most credible and refreshing of all Irish journalists" (Brendan Kennelly Irish Times)
"This is a splendid book, warm, eloquent and calmly intelligent, as easy and rewarding a read as anything published recently in Ireland. It combines political analysis, polemical essay, personal reminiscence and recapitulation of pieces published in the past... marvellously evocative of an era drawing to a close... This is the best book about Fianna Fáil published in recent years, and by a mile the best-written. A lot of it is funny, but mostly it's very sad" (Eamonn McCann Sunday Tribune)

Waters tracks the antics and subtleties of the commentariat, which still imposes its Weltanschauung on the public perception of the plight of Ireland with disastrous effects. The Dublin 4 bourgeoisie did it one time before in the period 1973-77.
