An enjoyable fun book. ( )

As a longtime fantasy sports nerd, this book really hit home. Matthew Berry weaves his way through a great narrative combining fantasy sports and life. Whether it is the struggles in life compared and contrasted with a a fantasy season gone awry or a look at the importance of keeping relationship alive via one, singular grounding point; this book covers a lot of territory and is a must-read for anyone who has been bitten by the fantasy sports bug.

This book was about two things I enjoy, but missed in its execution. I love Matthew Berry and his column. He is a witty and charming writer. I've been reading him since his TalentedMrRoto.com days, and was looking forward to this book.

There are two main themes here: one is Berry's autobiography, which would be fun to read because of his varied life in the entertainment industry. The other is crazy stories about fantasy leagues, a la FX's "The League". The format of this book feels like two books shoe-horned together. It makes for a dissonant reading experience, and not one I was able to get through for very long. ( )
