    One thought on “A Goomba's Guide to Life”

    1. I've known some real goomba's over the years, and I don't question Schirripa's goomba-ness. In fact, he sounds like guys I've known. And I guess that's what the problem was with the book for me. I've heard all this before.Now, I'm not a goomba. In my part of the country, a goomba wannabe is called a peckerwood. I hung out with some real goombas that I knew from around the neighborhood and through family friends. At one time I was all 'wood, but now I just have a little semi going.

    2. Given that Schirripa smashes the world record for times saying goomba in a 200 page book (which in all honesty is now in the thousands) its an entertaining book. Bobby Bacala isn't a particularly gifted writer, and depends more on spewing out some rather obvious statements mixed in with solid observations. “You can tell the quality of a restaurant by the items on the menu, too. If they serve a pizza with pineapple and ham on it, get out at once. No goomba would ever, ever eat a pizza with pine [...]

    3. I always pack this book when I am returning to college in the fall. It's a quick and easy read, but hilarious all the same. When I need a break from studying, I gladly turn to Schirripa's "guide". Anyone who knows anything about wiseguys will get a kick out of it.

    4. Hilarious descriptions of growing up in NJ around all types of characters (some mafia-related), discussion on a type of lifestyle, and some great recipes!
