Each week, when Sports Illustrated's 21 million readers open up their magazine, many turn right to the last page because that's where to find SI's most popular feature: the Life of Reilly column written by bestselling author Rick Reilly. A twenty-one-year veteran of the magazine and ten-time Sportswriter of the Year, Reilly took over SI's back page in 1998, and his column immediately attracted a devoted audience who helped make his 1990 book, The Life of Reilly, a New York Times bestseller. This new collection includes 100 of Reilly's favorite columns from the last six years, along with an introduction by Lance Armstrong. The title of the book signifies the strong reader response his columns typically generate (he wrote a column saying that cheerleading isn't a sport, and there was a light-hearted backlash). Alternately side-splitting and heart-warming, but always opinionated and provocative, this book brings together the best work by the best columnist in the business.

We had to read this book for school and unlike every other book we were forced to read, I actually enjoyed this one. It was funny, interesting, and even though I don't know much about sports, I still thought it was enjoyable. It's funny, because he's a sports writer and there are plenty of articles that have nothing to do with sports at all - they have to do with people. :)
