Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Red Sox Fans are from Mars, Yankees Fans are from Uranus is an irreverent and invaluable guide to improving communication and relationships between these two die-hard fan bases. Author and "interfanatical relationship counselor" Andy Wasif explains how an innocent phrase in New York - for example, "Bucky Dent" - can be a call to arms in Boston; details why Red Sox fans see no similarities between David Ortiz and Alex Rodriguez; and shares several can't-miss strategies for dealing with obnoxious fans from the opposing planet (hint: alcohol is heavily involved).

About the Author

Andy Wasif is a lifelong Red Sox fan, a sports journalist, and stand-up comedian. He is the author of How to Talk to a Yankee Fan and Red Sox University.

More About the Author

Andy Wasif was raised in the suburbs of Boston and brought to his first Red Sox game in 1982. From that day forward (until 2004), he was a down-on-his-luck Red Sox fan.

His desire to be a sports broadcaster brought him to Syracuse University where he roomed with and hung out with Yankees fans, absorbing far more verbal abuse than one man should. He spent his leisure time thoroughly immersed in the rivalry between the two fan bases. From his experience sprang three books including "Red Sox University" and the Boston Globe bestseller "Red Sox Fans are From Mars, Yankees Fans are From Uranus."

After graduating, he spent several years touring the country as a stand-up comedian before moving to Los Angeles where he trained at the famed Improv theaters Upright Citizens Brigade and Improv Olympic.

During his time on the West Coast, he has had his own blog for Yahoo! Sports on-line magazine "The PostGame" (www.thepostgame.com/blog/wasifs-world) and written many television and film scripts including the forthcoming sitcom "Adult Puberty." His latest screenplay "The 70-Year Itch" is currently in development. Please visit his personal site at www.wasifsworld.com to see all of his work.

Perhaps it was my perspective as a Mets fan, but I thought Andy struck precisely the right balance between Red Sox and Yankees fans in this tome. I laughed, I cried, I learned to love again. Not from the book itself, but I think, without question, that it played a key role. Fully recommend this to people who are able to read.

The title definitely drew me in and every page is humorous and enjoyable. I love how Wasif describes the characteristics of Red Sox and Yankees fans, most of them being quite accurate or at least believable. As a huge, dedicated Red Sox fan, I think this book is a great read.

Red Sox Fans Are from Mars, Yankees Fans Are

Tongue in cheek hilarious for a die hard Red Sox fan. Think I will pass it on to a fellow retiree of Yankee "fandom".

Bought as a gift for a friend, a Sox fan. He and another mutual friend, a Yankees fan, both had a good laugh.
