Summary
"Tom Scott is a political commentator, political cartoonist, satirist, scriptwriter, playwright, raconteur and funny man. He's been drawing political cartoons for Wellington's Dominion Post since 1988, was in the Press Gallery and was famously banned by PM Muldoon. He's observed David Lange, Mike Moore and Helen Clark, he was a close friend of Ed Hillary and wrote and worked on a number of documentaries. His memoir covers his childhood - a tragi-comedy of a poor Irish Catholic family, his uni days when he was editor of the student newspaper and sued for blasphemous libel, his parliamentary career, his work with Ed Hillary and more."--Publisher information

Biographical or historical data
Tom Scott has been a regular cartoonist for most of his career; initially for the New Zealand Listener magazine, then the Auckland Star,the Evening Post newspaper and its successor the Dominion Post. As a satirist, newspaper columnist and cartoonist, Scott often provokes New Zealand politicians and at one stage was banned from the press contingent for a considerable period of time by the Prime Minister of the day, the Right Honourable Sir Rob Muldoon, which naturally resulted in continuing astringent expressions in the press by Scott.
