your book this weekend at my friends house and LOVED IT. Great
sense of humor and descriptions are right on. Also, thanks for mentioning
-- Holly, Wilmington, NC
got a copy of your book from Lookfly at Paganello and it's awesome.
I've been on the sofa following my ACL op for the last week, and I almost
got through it in one sitting; it definitely cheered me up to no end! Now
I'm in the process of getting all my teammates to read it /get their own
copies, and start teaching the useful bits to the Great Britain juniors
to make sure they have a solid start to their ultimate careers.
-- Linz Wilkinson, U.K.
Although my hucks already leave much to be desired, I saw a copy of your book at a WAFC event (they were given as door prizes) and instantly needed one. Thanks for the quick send! I'll be sure to teach its many vital lessons to the HS kids I'm about to start coaching...
-- Duane L., Washington DC
friend bought me your book since he went to the signing. I
LOVE IT! I’m still reading it. My husband, Tom, wants me to hurry
up so he can read it.
-- Katie G, Detroit
running a film and photography competition through my blog and offering
a new copy of your book as a prize. It's going to be based on this
weekends Mixed Nationals 2009 in the UK. I thought I'd just let you know,
I enjoyed reading your book and I'm about to send out an email to the whole
of BritDisc (every UK ultimate player will get the message) which means
a good few thousand people who don't know about your book soon will. All
-- David Greenberg (#22 Thundering Herd) May 2009
Thanks for the books. My wife and I stayed up late reading it. It was a definite kick to see our culture lovingly skewered, and also to find out that I'm "a local oldster, even if I don't think so."
-- Matt W., Pittsburgh
You have a growing fan base in Ho Chi Minh City! the students like your book very much! enjoy the KL tourney!
-- Lester S., Vietnam
glad you could use what I wrote. I ordered several books to give
as gifts. Ireally like the book and have laughed out loud several times.
once again, thanks for including katey and I.
-- Seanymac, Houston
book is awesome. When
I first saw it I was scared that it was going to be a superficial attempt
to make some money off the sport but it actually comes across as dead on...
the book is very cool.
-- Nathan L., Colorado
like I should tell you your book is brilliant. I was living in
a room of four frisbee players last year, and after we all read it, your
book quickly became the bathroom reading of choice.
-- Eric A., Carleton College
thanks again for getting me a copy of your book! Even my soccer
player friends were laughing at how funny but ridiculously true it is.
-- Julia R., Connecticut
the book was a big hit
-- everyone who received one at the wedding loved it. There were lots of
yellow books being read on the beaches of Mexico in January!
-- Eileen L., Denver
received the books, thanks a lot, a great honor.
I took a look at the big one [Ultimate: The First Four Decades] and started to read the yellow one which I love -- very intelligent irony that I always appreciated a lot. Great job, I love you as a writer (and as a person).
-- Jumpi from Paganello. Bologna, Italy
one at Barnes and Noble and read the whole thing....very
funny! Love the stoner player guy thing too. I really laughed a lot at that
book, it was dead on.
-- Matt T., New York
Tony, I had my parents pick up your latest book for me for Christmas and
absolutely loved reading it! It is by far one of the best books
about ultimate around and is definitely the most humorous/truthful piece
I have ever read about ultimate ever. Hope all is well and see you on the
-- Brian C, Boston
a load and recognized so much :-) The
scariest part was that I fit many of the stereotypes ;-)
-- Patrick V. from BULA, Portugal
I just thought you'd like to hear that my wife, an avid NON-Ultimate player,
read your book and found it absolutely hilarious.
Given how little she likes anything else about Ultimate, you should consider
that high praise indeed.
-- David B., Brooklyn
a copy of your book for Xmas (I'm not ashamed to say that I specifically
asked for it). I
LOVED it! Great work! I couldn't put it down AND I couldn't stop laughing.
--Cassandra S., Florida
congrats on a hilarious contribution to the cultural downfall of mankind.
will enjoy this as I slip into retirement and Ultimate irrelevance semi-gracefully.
-- Alex T., Paris
you a few months after Eileen, gave me a siged copy, I was so surprised!!
GRACIAS GRACIAS GRACIAS!!! I have been bragging about being on the top ten
-- Fernando N., Acapulco, Mexico
Tony, Just got your book - and it looks absolutely terrific.
My husband is wonderfully typical of the types you describe. He plays with a bunch of very, very competitive fellow scientists - all of them in denial about how seriously they take it. Your book will be an extremely affectionate Christmas tease!
-- Jody T., Cold Spring Harbor, New York
receive the book and it's great stuff. I
also appreciated the shout outs to Ug-Mo and Pie Queens. I'm telling all
my friends on the left coast to pick one up.
-- Jeff M., New York

cause I started reading it and love it... hilarious...
--Shauna S., Massachusetts

and loves it! are we going to see you on the sand next weekend???
-- Sara F, Los Angeles
[you] know what, that's me on page one. Yep. And also on page 113.
The partier, the guy with the beer can in his hand. See? Look at my profile.
That's me. Look, see when I do this? When I get old and can't play anymore
I can show people the book. I have, like, at least two copies. And you want
to know the truth? I don't even drink."
