Bill Simmons writes "The Sports Guy" column for ESPN.com's "Page 2" and "ESPN: The Magazine." He is the author of Now I Can Die In Peace, founded the award-winning bostonsportsguy.com website, and was a writer for "Jimmy Kimmel Live." He commutes between his home in Los Angeles and Fenway Park. "From the Hardcover edition."
"[A] slam dunk."--"USA Today" "The work of a true fan . . . It might just represent the next phase of sports commentary."--"The Atlantic" "May be one of those literary lollapaloozas that Simmons's fans must buy."--"The New York Times" "Wildly prolific, ceaselessly witty, harmlessly crass, and generally wise, Simmons has built an everydude empire by triangulating the trashy pop-culture futon talk of Chuck Klosterman and the stats-heavy philosophizing of Malcolm Gladwell."--"The Village Voice" "This is just plain fun. . . . The true NBA fan will dive into this hefty volume and won't resurface for about a week."--"Booklist" (starred review) "The book flows much like Mr. Simmons's ESPN columns. . . . Opinion gushes out of him. But he backs it up with equal parts serious research and off-angle observations. . . . He has produced enough provocative arguments to fuel barstool arguments far into the future."--"The Wall Street Journal" NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE "SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE"
