The author has been described by News Ltd as an "iconoclast", "Svengali", a pollie's "economist muse", and "pungently accurate". Fairfax says he is a "Renaissance man" and "one of Australia’s most respected analysts." Stephen Koukoulas concludes that he is "85% right", and "would make a great Opposition leader." Terry McCrann claims the author thinks "‘nuance’ is a trendy village in the south of France", but can be "scintillating" when he thinks "clearly". The ACTU reckons he’s "an enigma wrapped in a Bloomberg terminal, wrapped in some apparently well-honed abs."

Now McCrann bites Megalogenis's head off

Poor old Mega is copping a beating from every which way. Terry McCrann is one enemy nobody needs. He's like a weathered saltwater crocodile dozing on the edge of the Ord River in Kunnunurra. He sits there waiting silently, like a statue, camouflaged by the mottled mangroves. You don't notice him until it is too late. With surprising speed and agility, McCrann the croc bites your head off and throws the remaining carcass into a death-roll. You should not have been swimming in these waters in the first place. The sign did say, after all, Warning, this be McCrann Territory.
