Review:

The best book about politics Ive read since All the Kings Men ... it's about basketball [like] Moby Dick is about whaling. -- Hartford Courant

The best book about loving a team since "A Fan's Notes" ... [a book] about a lot more than basketball.--Greensboro News & Record

Blythe makes you want to scream from the sidelines... while his hate is contagious, the obvious affection behind it remains.--New York Post

Hilarious and remarkably wise ... you don't want to say too much about [this book], for fear of spoiling the surprises.--Sports Illustrated

"The best book on basketball I have ever read ... destined to become a classic of sports literature."--Pat Conroy

Blythe brings great wit, style, and insight... a long-awaited American answer to Fever Pitch.--Baltimore Sun

An exceptionally entertaining parable in defense of good, healthy, all-American loathing.... an animosity the whole family can share.--New York Post

"Not since Exley's A Fan's Notes has anyone produced such a graceful and elegiac evocation of place, family, and sport."--Anthony Swofford, author of Jarhead

"Blythe seduces with his story of Southern identity...passed down from fathers to their roaming sons...raucous, tender, and fierce."--Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, author of "Random Family"

"The kind of sportswriting that comes along so rarely you can count the classics on one hand . . . read this book."--Play (New York Times Magazine sports supplement)

You don't have to be a Tar Heel or Blue Devil to like [THLT], because it's funny, perceptive, and smart.--Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post

Goes far beyond the facile John Feinstein "inside a season" formula ... [Blythe] writes amusingly, self-deprecatingly and often beautifully.--New York Times Book Review

"A revelation.... an elegant testament to the way pastimes are far more than ways to pass the time."--Publishers Weekly (signature review)
