Recalling stories of his own colorful journey from the streets of Bensonhurst to the bright lights of Las Vegas and stardom as Bobby "Bacala" Baccilieri in HBO's hit series The Sopranos, Schirripa observes the finer points of amore in all its forms. Take, for instance, the boundaries of brotherly love: It's okay, he explains, to go to a Mets game with your buddy but definitely not to a yoga class. Then there's the tough love of la famiglia. Every goomba is a family man, after all. So you want him to tell the truth? Ask him to swear on the heads of his children.
Alternately touching, telling, and laugh-out-loud funny, The Goomba's Book of Love proves that no one loves as fiercely (or as frequently) as a goomba.

Wonderfully written and narrated book. I've known a few Italian's in my time and no one compares to what a true Gumba is except one in Philadelphia. Steven Schirripa is a great storyteller and yet he tells it like it is. Loved the book and it gave be a better insight to Italians.
