About Blimp Pilot Terrorizes Akron

Here’s Akron, with attitude. A giant cockroach, ticket-happy traffic cops, sexting teens, bumbling politicians, prima donna sports stars . . . There are few topics that Akron Beacon Journal columnist Bob Dyer hasn’t tackled head-on. His biting commentary has earned him followers and foes alike—along with a boatload of awards. In this collection of his best writing, Dyer nearly crashes the Goodyear blimp, drag races in a ’64 Plymouth Barracuda, drives a 126-ton locomotive, panhandles on a downtown street corner, surveys the “Great Wall of Fairlawn,” dispenses unsolicited advice to LeBron James, and generally waves a red flag at political correctness. Great fun to read—as long as you’re not overly sensitive!
