Overview

Fantasy football, fantasy baseball, fantasy basketball, even fantasy sumo wrestling—the world of fantasy sports is huge and still growing.
Today more than thirty-five million people in the United States and Canada spend hours upon hours each week on their fantasy sports teams. And as the senior fantasy sports analyst for ESPN, Matthew Berry is on the front lines of what has grown from a niche subculture into a national pastime.

In Fantasy Life, Berry celebrates every aspect of the fantasy sports world: brilliant trash talk, unbelievable trophies, insane draft day locations, shake-your-head-in-disbelief punishments, ingenious attempts at cheating, and surprisingly uplifting stories that remind us why we play these games in the first place.

Written with the same award-winning style that has made
Berry one of the most popular columnists on ESPN.com, Fantasy Life is a book for both hard-core fantasy players and people who have never played before. Between tales of love and hate, birth and death, tattoos and furry animal costumes, the White House Situation Room and a 126-pound golden pelican,
Matthew chronicles his journey from a fourteen-year-old fantasy player to the face of fantasy sports for the largest sports media company in the world.

Fantasy will save your life. Fantasy will set you free. And fantasy life is most definitely better than real life. You’ll see.
