You don’t even need to be a sports fan. If you like great writing, if you appreciate irreverent humor, if stories about friendship, family, backstabbing, and regrettable Justin Bieber tattoos warm your heart, you’ll love this book.” —Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author   "As a longtime fan of Matthew Berry, I'm happy he's finally collected the most inane and hilarious things people will do in pursuit of fantasy glory. If I was in a fantasy league where you drafted people who write about fantasy leagues I would draft Matthew first. Also, I would need to make some major changes in my life." —Seth Meyers, Saturday Night Live Head Writer   “I am a bad fantasy football player and worse fantasy baseballer. I am heartened after reading Fantasy Life that this apparently does not matter. Matthew Berry’s book proves that there are lots of people out there like us: people who don't use fantasy sports to escape from life, but rather to live it with more fun.” —Peter King, Senior Writer, Sports Illustrated   It’s no secret that the fantasy sports business, especially the fantasy football business, is huge – and growing exponentially. Every year over 30 million Americans play fantasy sports, which is more people than play golf, watch American Idol or visit the Grand Canyon. If fantasy was an actual sport, it would be the 4th most popular sport in the US . Celebrities play. Athletes play. Musicians play. Even President Obama’s a fan.  Fantasy sports, once a niche subculture, has become an all-consuming, beloved national pastime, and no one knows more about it than Matthew Berry. Universally regarded as one of the leading voices on fantasy sports (deemed “a fantasy savant” by The New York Times) Matthew Berry is ESPN’s Senior Fantasy Sports Analyst. Also known as the “Talented Mr. Roto,” he has received an Emmy Award for his work on ESPN2’s Fantasy Football Now and as one of the most popular columnists and podcasters on ESPN.com, he appears regularly on ESPN television and radio shows, including Sunday NFL Countdown, SportsCenter, and NFL Live. New York Magazine quipped: “At this point, we’d say more sports fans know who Matthew Berry is than know most of the players on [their fantasy sports] team.” FANTASY LIFE: The Outrageous, Uplifting and Heartbreaking World of Fantasy Sports From the Guy Who's Lived It, out from Riverhead July 16, just in time for fantasy football draft season, is a celebration of every aspect of the fantasy sports world: Brilliant trash talk. Unbelievable trophies. Insane draft day locations. Shocking punishments. Ingenious attempts at cheating. And surprisingly uplifting stories that remind us why we play these games in the first place. From a grown man forced to get a Justin Bieber tattoo to a pastor cheating in a church league to having to draft while dressed in a 6 foot bird costume to fantasy football giving a cancer patient the hope to beat the disease, these are stories of people that will make you laugh, cry and shake your head in disbelief.  Fantasy sports are continuing to grow, but never before have they been covered with this depth, warmth and wit. This is the definitive book on the sport and an absolute must for all fantasy fans, as well as the people who love – or, at the very least, put up with – them!
