From the Publisher:
An inside look at the world of fantasy sports from the most recognizable and trusted name in the industry.|
Fantasy Life explores the increasingly ubiquitous world of fantasy sports. Every year, millions of men ? and women - spend their time assembling, managing, and obsessing over fantasy teams. Reputations are put on the line. Friendships are tested. Money is won, and more often lost. Fantasy sports aren?t make-believe. For its devotees, fantasy is reality.|
As the Senior Fantasy Analyst at ESPN, Matthew Berry is on the front lines of what is no longer just a niche sub-culture, but a multi-billion dollar national pastime. In Fantasy Life, he celebrates every aspect of the fantasy sports world, from the hilarious to the insane to the uplifting. It contains stories of intrigue, betrayal, outrageous behavior, and surprisingly touching moments (let?s just say that fantasy might save your life). And along the way, he chronicles his rise from a fourteen-year-old fantasy player to being the face of fantasy sports for the largest sports media company in the world, a journey that coincides with the tremendous growth of fantasy sports, from small groups of friends mailing each other box scores to a phenomenon played by over 30 million people.|
Because sometimes fantasy life is better than real life.
