Publisher's Summary

Michael Rapaport, actor, top 50 podcaster, award-winning film maker, and sports fanatic, is here to set the world straight on the greatest and downright worst athletes, players, teams, and jerseys - while refusing to mention statistics, analytics, or anything else that isn't pure hustle.
In 1979, nine-year-old Michael Rapaport decided he was going to do whatever it took to be a pro baller. He practiced and practiced, but by the time he was 15, he realized there was no place for a slow, white Jewish kid in the NBA. So he found another way to channel his obsession with sports: talking trash.
In This Book Has Balls, Rapaport uses his signature smack-talk style and in-your-face humor to discuss everything from why LeBron will never be like Mike to how Tiger needs the ladies to get his golf game back and how he once thought Mary Lou Retton was his true love. And, of course, why next year will be the year the New York Knicks win the championship. This book is a series of rants - some controversial, some affectionate, but all incredibly hilarious.

Gringo Mandingo Mike Rapaport does it again!

I am a fan of The IAMRAPAPORT Stereo Podcast, if you love the podcast you will love this book! The music inbetween chapters, sounds like MoodyBeats. From the dedication at the start of the book, to that poor editor's notes on dealing & surviving The Gringo Mandingo. Each chapter got funnier & funnier. I renewed my membership just for this book.

Incredible!! Finished it in two days!

I was completely hooked once I started it, and only stopped listening to it for work and some family time. It is that good! I found myself laughing out loud in public with my earbuds in many, many times. There is so much humor, heartfelt emotion, and great stories woven throughout his narrative I wish there was more. Good work Gringo Mandingo, you killed it it duke.
