MY GAWD! This is a horrid book and it seems the author spent two hours banging it out on his old Commodore 64 computer. You should be able to sue for pain and suffering after reading this snoozer. How did it even get published?

I'm a huge baseball fan and I can recognize that people go to games to voice their opinions. That's all fine and well; however, it's no wonder this guy is a heckler. Everything he has to say can be summed up in 3 words or less so why did he write this book?

What a piece of trash. I immediately regretted my purchase after I finished the last page. Oh well, the good news is that last time I was at the Trop I didn't hear this loudmouth and he's no longer audible on television either. It's too bad this terrible book will never disappear like he has.

First off, the kid review was as stated-based on a FEW pages. He obviously did not read the first line of the introduction..."This book is about me"(hence the reason for a lot of the sentences beginning with "I".

Now, what do I have to say about the book. I think the author achieved his goals of 1) showing that heckling can be fun and that 2) it can be a positive way of being an active fan for your team. According to the web-site (...), heckling has been around for over a century and has been used at several sports. My critism of the book would be that an editor would have helped to deal with the repeatitive statements in the book and would have clarified the statement "he takes me yard". Otherwise it really was an enjoyable book.

The subtitle of the book is HECKLING IS A BAD THING?

Rob Szasz's book on heckling is, surprisingly, one of only two books I know of on the subject. The "Tampa Bay heckler" has written a book about his experiences in good-natured heckling of opponents of his team, the Devil Rays (who need all the help they can get).

Ron is always tasteful in his heckling (and in the book), avoiding off color language and steering clear of anything personal that would be hurtful to the players he targets. Anyone who has watched a Tropicana game on TV (or been there) has heard Rob Szasz. He makes the point that he most enjoys the players who get a chuckle out of his heckling. The ones who can't take a joke aren't really very good targets, anyhow.

The whole thing is in fun, and so is the book. I wish we had more fans like Rob Szasz.
