“As a fan of The Heckler, I expected no less from this book. It’s the Italian beef of optimism sprinkled with the hot peppers of pessimism. There’s always next year! Yeah…right.” -Celebrity Cubs fan Joe Mantegna

“This book is one of the funniest I have ever read. George Ellis has given the vast, shambling Cubs Nation reason to live. Other than beer.” -Chicago Sun-Times columnist Rick Telander

“Loveable but unrealistic, ignores the truth and every chapter is a reminder that, no matter how good things look on paper, something bad can always happen…and usually does.” -TV and radio personality Bob Sirott

“Helps explain how it is that Cubs fans remains fiercely loyal while somewhat maintaining their sanity. And in true Heckler form, George Ellis kids because he loves. I think.” -Cubs TV broadcaster Len Kasper
