The Pope's Children
"A brilliant guide for the layman . . . a deft dissection of social mores. It is all great fun and, you'll probably recognize yourself somewhere in there."
"A great read . . . David McWilliams is Ireland's most talked about young
economist, often credited with coining the phrase Celtic Tiger. The Pope's Children not only explains how our economic boom got going, but how it changed people's lives here, not always for the better."
-John Spain, Irish Voice
"The definitive description of the Ireland we live in. Read it and weep."
"It's like Tom Wolfe meets the Celtic Tiger. . . . It is bright, pacy, clever and entertaining, irreverent and full of attitude."
-Jim O'Leary, Irish economist, The Village Magazine
"This is economics with soul. . . . If you want to know what modern Ireland
is really like, this is the book to read."
-Nick Rossiter, Rumbles.net
"Brilliant and funny."
