Product description

Review

Adam Goldstein is the Alexis de Tocqueville of tailgating: the foreigner who comes to chronicle our curious cultural practices with both a critical eye and the fascination of a school boy. Goldstein brilliantly exposes just how crazy and cool our devotion to the party before the game truly is to the outside eye. Kerry J. Byrne, publisher, ColdHardFootballFacts.com

"I have tailgated at 870 games, and I can tell you that Adam Goldstein has captured the community spirit of tailgating with immense passion." Joe Cahn, Commissioner of Tailgating

""Tailgate to Heaven" is a damn entertaining read and certainly not just for tailgaters. It's Hunter Thompson meets Jim McMahon meets Marco Polo with a beer funnel."--Lee Hurley, editor in chief, "Tailgater Monthly" magazine

"You'll laugh at the adventures detailed in the coming pages, and you will rejoice in the way Americans from sea to shining sea welcomed Adam into their ranks, particularly during the much-celebrated pregame tailgate parties. You might even cry, but only if you happen to catch sight of Adam's credit card bill."--From the foreword by Neil Reynolds, copresenter for NFL coverage, Sky Sports, and writer for NFLUK.com and SkySports.com--Neil Reynolds

Tailgate to Heaven is a damn entertaining read and certainly not just for tailgaters. It s Hunter Thompson meets Jim McMahon meets Marco Polo with a beer funnel. Lee Hurley, editor in chief, Tailgater Monthly magazine--Lee Hurley"

Throughout his travels and in the pages of this book, Adam Goldstein approaches the subject with the curiosity of an anthropologist and a comic s eye for the absurd, as he tries to make sense of and make a case for American football and the world of red cups and free T-shirts. From the foreword by Karen DiEugenio, writer for YourTailgateParty.com and author of I Got Your Tailgate Party Right Here!--Karen DiEugenio"

The uniquely American pastime of tailgating has developed its own lifestyle and customs rarely experienced by foreigners. In Tailgate to Heaven, Adam Goldstein takes you on his journey from British football fan to hardcore tailgater in one NFL season. You may think you know the culture and lifestyle that is tailgating, but until you have viewed the NFL parking lots through Goldstein s eyes, you won t have the complete picture. Dave Lamm, founder, TailgatingIdeas.com--Dave Lamm"

Adam Goldstein s passion for American football and determination to succeed in his ambitious quest shines through and takes the reader on a unique, char-grilled American road trip. He s thrown open the doors and dropped down the tailgate on a face-painted world where socializing, hospitality, and having a great game day are the most important things sometimes even more important than football itself. Nick Richards, author of Touchdown UK: American Football before, during, and after Britain s Golden Decade--Nick Richards"

It s no wonder Americans took to Adam as he went on his journey: like the settlers who travelled west across the United States, he is a pioneer. Tailgate to Heaven is not just an enthralling paean to the NFL, its fans, and its delicious BBQ food it s an inspirational tale of what one man with a dream or a goal can accomplish. Adam Goldstein, we salute you. Ben Isaacs, ShortList magazine--Ben Isaacs"
