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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Would love to review... Ordered on Dec 19th, 2013. It is now March of 2014. The message I keep getting from amazon is that the seller needs more time. Really??? Was supposed to be a Christmas present. My husband's birthday is in November. Maybe it will come in time for that.

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".

actually the other way around, but no surprise there. Very funny, for any fan of any team. Good price, hard to believe I also saw for over $50 on ebay!

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. From that day forward, he spent his leisure time thoroughly immersed in the rivalry between the two fan bases.

Taking a detour from his broadcasting aspirations after graduating, he found himself in Los Angeles where he became a stand-up comedian, performing in venues across the country for several years.

He currently resides on the West Coast where he writes for Yahoo! Sports on-line magazine, "The PostGame" (www.thepostgame.com/blog/wasifs-world) and is working on television and film scripts. Please visit his personal site at www.wasifsworld.com to see more of his work.
