2014 Edition: The Cubs Fan's Guide To Happiness
Originally published in 2007 by Triumph Books, The Cubs Fan's Guide To Happiness is back with a brand-new, updated edition for 2014. This book reveals what makes Cubs fans tick and what keeps them happy. It explains why it’s not over until you’re mathematically eliminated, why winning really isn’t everything, and why it’s perfectly acceptable to blame all your troubles on a scapegoat, which may or may not be an actual goat.
This revised edition (208 pages), released to coincide with Wrigley Field's 100th Anniversary, features new sections like "A Renovated Stadium, A Renovated Future" and "Sabermetrics? No, Cubbiemetrics!" It's perfect for any Cubs fan. But don't take our word for it. Listen to these folks:
“The Cubs Fan’s Guide to Happiness is one of the funniest books I've ever read. George Ellis has given the vast, shambling Cubs Nation reason to live. Other than beer.” —Chicago Sun-Times columnist and 'Heaven is a Playground' author Rick Telander
"The Italian beef of optimism sprinkled with the hot peppers of pessimism." —Celebrity Cubs fan Joe Mantegna
“This book helps explain how Cubs fans remain fiercely loyal while somewhat maintaining their sanity. And in true Heckler form, George Ellis kids because he loves...I think" —Chicago Cubs TV play-by-play announcer Len Kasper
