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 best-selling author Rick Reilly. A 21-year veteran of the magazine and 10-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 best-seller. 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 audiobook brings together the best work by the best columnist in the business.
"Superb....Reilly's columns are short but pack a punch; a collection best savored." (Publishers Weekly)
"Reilly...shines....In this collection, [he] elegantly...delivers sports' essential paradox: the game has meaning, but, whether it's baseball or golf or basketball or football, it's just a game." (Booklist)
