Summary:

Move over Miss Lonelyhearts . . . Steven R. Schirripa, author of the runaway bestseller A Goomba's Guide to Life, is back with more life lessons from the neighborhood. Recalling stories of his own colorful journey from the streets of Bensonhurst to the bright lights of Las Vegas and stardom as Bobby Bacala Baccalieri in the HBO hit series The Sopranos, Schirripa observes the finer points of amore in all its forms love for his mother and her Sunday sauce, his wife and kids, his friends, his goomar on the side, even for his car (and he better not catch you eating in it, if you know what's good for you). 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.

    Very informative. Describes the humanity of a stereotyped group of people. We all have our good and bad sides.

    Cute in a sweet Goomba's way. 'That Old Ace In The Hole' by Annie Proulx is MUCH funnier.

  • Charles Barone

    The Narration was the best. He told some very interesting life stories with a goomba twist. It had the feel like he was talking to you over lunch. If you are an Italian-American or interested in the culture this book is fantastic.

    This book was laugh out loud funny. I appreciated the humor, although sometimes the references to "Goomba Sex" got a little long winded. All in all a very funny book and one that I would refer to all my friends who grew up in "Goomba land".
