For readers, I can say that this book is a page turner if you are into sports, the NFL, any other fantasy leagues, or just enjoy satire/humor writing. The book's honesty is what makes it successful - there are no embellishments necessary because us FFLers are truly that crazy.
I'll be in Vegas for the WCOFF...soon maybe they'll rename the trophy the St.Amant trophy after all the publicity he gives them. Buy it and read it now! Now, back to ranking my depth charts...do I take Chris Brown over Brian Westbrook?
To the reviewer who said this book is about old obscure players: you don't know and remember who Peyton Manning, LaDanian Tomlinson, Marvin Harrison, Clinton Portis, and Priest Holmes were/are? You probably had no business reading this book anyways. That reviewer also said this book is about old/obsolete resources which don't exist anymore...last I checked- which was today- ESPN, CBS, and Footballguys.com are very much still alive and running well as tier 1 FF content providers.
There is ALOT of swearing in this book, though- as in, what seemed like an f-bomb (or more) per page- as well as a few crude references.
Let me start by saying that I do not play Fantasy Football. I do watch some NFL games, but I am by no means a hard-core football fan. I am however, a hard-core reader. I confess that I did not think I would like this book before I started reading it. After the first few pages, however, I was hooked.
Here was a very readable story, a story that was laid out in such a way that I wanted to follow it to its end. As I read through the story I was introduced to a number of characters that I am still interested in. I also feel as though I got to know the author a little bit. Here is a guy that was crazy enough to quit his job to pursue Fantasy Football yet sane enough to remain "committed" to the most important things in his life.
I think he was able to achieve his stated goal of introducing me, the reader, to the world of fantasy football in such a way that I am interested in perhaps joining a league next year.
He also told me something about his wife and his friends, all of whom sound very real and very "normal". In short, he shared something of his life with me, a perfect stranger.
I must give a warning though, there were times while reading this book that I laughed so hard I had to stop reading. It hurt my back for me to laugh that hard. Even though I knew I was in for some physical pain, I still read the book cover to cover.
