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.

I got this as a gift for someone from Boston. The title kind of sums up the books premise.

Not being into sports that much, I am surprised that there is so much animosity between the two teams! (o.k., sarcasm!)

I think this would be a good book for any Red Sox fan, and the Holidays and/or birthdays are always approaching!

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.

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

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".

Was this book written by the Yankees? Did it get its funding from the New York Post? This book is stupid and really has no clue what it means to be a true Red Sox fan. This is for all the pink hat wearing, Johnny Damon loving (until 2006) fake Red Sox fans who never knew what it was like to suffer for most of your life as a Sox fan. The authors of this book obviously never saw 1978 or 1986 because in t heir limited writing minds the Red Sox fist took the field in 2004 apparently.

This book represents the epitome of what an intelligent Red Sox fan faces in these days of success. Success as they say breeds contempt well here is the proof. Attention all REAL Red Sox fans. Do not be caught dead reading this useless piece of garbage!
