Let's be honest: Many football, baseball, and basketball enthusiasts watch sports with a split sense of loyalty: On one hand, they want the local team to win; on the other, the 35 million North American fantasy sports fans want the players on their personal game teams to succeed. What began in the late seventies as a modest venture has become a national obsession that receives regular attention on national news and network sports shows. Fantasy Life takes us into the weird, wondrous, self-contained universe of "reality" sports gamers. Readers couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable guide: As ESPN's Senior Fantasy Sports Analyst, Matthew Berry has covered every facet of this popular indoor sport; from players and officials to attempts, both legal and illegal, to gain a winning advantage. An off-season or on-season must-read. Editor's recommendation.
