Abstract:

A celebration of chest puffing goodness and kindness from around the country written in inimitable Peter FitzSimon's style.

You gotta love this country when an AFL legend takes his mum instead of his girlfriend to the Brownlow, when an Australian cricket captain joins a bunch of fourteen year olds for a bit of street cricket, when a bloke wins the Australian Marbles Championship after being reunited with the tom-bowlers his brother threw away forty years ago, and when the dry cleaner down the road is called Drop Your Pants...Peter FitzSimons celebrates the good, the generous, the kind and the downright strange in this hilarious and heart- warming collection of stories from daily life and grassroots sporting fields around the country. It's enough for you to puff out your chest and say, Gotta Love This Country!..
