Review quote

"A (very heated) "Fan's Notes". . . . . Rollicking and profane. . . . . Raab's sustained attack on James is diverting, [but] it is the author's self-portrait of a man and a fan of serious extremes, one who loves his wife and son as fiercely as he hates most of the rest of the world, that engrosses."--"Sports Illustrated"
