I am a long time fan of the author's gambling related books.
This book is nothing like his previous stuff.
It is a trip down memory lane for a catholic american male growing up as a baby boomer.
Parts are funny, parts are thought provoking and some parts have way too much personal info (Yes his wife was right he should have let out THAT chapter) LOL (You will know what I mean when you read the book).

If you fit into his demographic you will certainly identify with it. For other you can get a look into a life.

I think his best stuff was the writing on the question of GOD.

I recommend it.

I have read Frank Scoblete's gambling books and I always found them informative. Frank's writing style, even in those books, could be funny. He was always insightful. I always liked the stories that touched on the history of dice control. The back-story was always interesting to me.
In this book, Frank examines and reminisces about growing up Catholic, in Brooklyn. He brings to the pages what you might hear if you got together with your friends and got nostalgic. I, like Frank, was born in Brooklyn, and spent my youth there. . I can totally relate to what he is writing.about. It seems that his friends were my friends. Their thoughts, my thoughts. Their escapades and adventures, mine also. I am not finished yet with the book, but so enjoyed so much what I have read, that I wanted to share it with you. This is a great book for anyone who grew up Catholic or anyone who knew a
Catholic and wanted to peek into the confessional booth (which Frank does, with predictable fun). I bought another copy and am gifting it to a friend who is a priest. But first I am going back to my old haunts in Brooklyn, to reminisce, to see the old apartment, the old school, the Church, and get flooded with memories. That is what this book has done for me.

WOW! What a great book! From his ability to write Broadway Plays, (one is in his book "The Virgin Kiss"), to TV shows, to movie scripts, to being the greatest gambling writer .... with this book Frank has shown that he can write anything and make it funny, interesting, and insightful! A laugh out loud and thought provoking book!

If you have read any of Frank's books and enjoyed his ability to weave a story, this book is a must read.

Can't put it down! I did not grow up Catholic, but have heard many stories. Well, this brings religion and humor alive and enjoyable! I can't wait to read more of Frank Scoblete's work. Well written, not boring and certainly captivating! Having it on my Kindle application makes it great to read just about anywhere!!! Kudos to Scobe!

I have read many of Frank's books and have enjoyed all of them. This one is no different. I laughed, I cried, and I questioned. Written in an easy to read style, this book is both fun and thought provoking. I recommend it.
