A memoir with a difference. Through much of Bob Brockie's long and colourful life - 80 plus years to date - he has kept a notebook and sketch pad beside him. In this charming book, Dr Robert Brockie remembers - with some help from his diaries - all the highlights. The people (particularly women), places, pioneering scientific work and five decades of political cartooning. There is a strong emphasis on the sketches, portraits, caricatures and cartoons that Brockie is renowned for, but his varied and impressive scientific career is not forgotten. Brockie's life has encompassed editing and illustrating at School Publications, design concepts for Te Papa, DSIR's ground-breaking Orongoronga Valley forest study, possum and hedgehog research, 40 years as National Business Review cartoonist, the writing of a number of books, and over 600 popular newspaper science columns.

For over a century rugby has been New Zealand’s national game, an obsession that has helped define a small country and mould its people – Maori and Pakeha Having a Ball looks at the triumphs and disasters, the amateur code that morphed into the professional era, the game at the local park and internationals in huge arenas, as well as rugby’s effect on the national psyche and the agendas of politicians. It is a story brilliantly told in a short introduction and through the perceptive, telling and funny insights of New Zealand’s leading cartoonists. From earlier generations, there are cartoons by Trevor Lloyd, Sir Gordon Minhinnick, Sid Scales, Neville Colvin, Eric Heath and Nevile Lodge. Today’s award-winning cartoonists include Peter Bromhead, Bob Brockie, Chris Slane, Murray Ball, Murray Webb, Garrick Tremain and Tom Scott. Foreword by David Kirk, captain of the All Black team that won the inaugural World Rugby Cup in 1987. Having a Ball also includes a timeline of important dates in NZ’s rugby history and short profiles of the contributing cartoonists.
