Seventh on Sports Illustrated’s Top 100 Sports Books of All Time, Dan Jenkins’ Semi-Tough is a raucous, politically incorrect football spoof starring New York Giants redneck star Billy Clyde Puckett. As Puckett records the outrageous buildup to his team’s Super Bowl clash with cross-town rivals the Jets, his best friend’s voluptuous main squeeze puts some knee-buckling moves on him that he finds difficult to dodge.

    " An enjoyable piece of football fiction. Definitely a bit dated, but fun to read. If you're in the mood for something that will keep you entertained, don't want to think to hard, and like football, check this book out. A good travel book to occupy stopovers, plane trips and hotel time. "

    " Great literature? Maybe not. Great and original entertainment? Yes definitely. Politically correct? Not for a second! Read the original scale for rating women from one to ten based on their looks. My friends and I have been laughing over this book for over forty years!!! "

    " Very funny. Takes you inside the lives of football stars in the 80's without holding back. The language is certainly offensive, but that's part of making a period piece; you can't sanitize it, it was the way it was and to try to change it is dishonest. A great story. "
