Definitely plan on grabbing Inverting the Pyramid. Is it surface stuff or does he go really in depth?

It's very in-depth and thorough. He's a tremendous historian with fantastic writing skills.

Inverting the Pyramid is well-researched and really interesting. The big thing about Wilson is that he's intensely readable. You can easily get invested into the arc of the narrative and not realize it, which is impressive, especially with a sportswriter. The only other sportswriter who I think is more impressive is Joe Posnanski.

I believe a revised and updated edition of Inverting the Pyramid is due out November 5th. I believe I'll wait til then to get it.

As mentioned, he probably has enough available on the Guardian website to keep you occupied for quite some time

I was going to say this. We have 5 more months to become great or shitty. I just hope Tn Bhoy steals all of the shitty awards even while being banned.

I don't think that'll be an issue.

That's not fair to him, or the board

However, this is the perfect situation for a lifetime achievement award
