Selena Roberts < James FreyCouldn't happen to a nicer book:
Remember that tell-all book about A-Rod? Just a month after making headlines with its allegations that the New York Yankees star likely used steroids as far back as high school, Selena Roberts' "A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez" has vanished from best seller lists.
Best part is a blurb from the article noting that James Frey's "A Million Little Pieces" is currently outselling Roberts' book. That means that Roberts isn't even heading the lists in the lucrative Unsubstantiated Baloney genre.
Tough break, kid.

Most people didn’t need her flash-in-the-pan shallow “journalism” to get an opinion on A-Rod, and he’s hardly worth reading about altogether.
Pick up a Neyer book and learn how the pro’s do it, Selena.

When I head into Barnes & Noble - where should I look for the “lucrative Unsubstantiated Baloney genre” section - is it near the ‘Waste your money Self-Help’ section or up front by all the clearance books?

Hearing this made my day. Thanks Craig.

now if we can only get ESPN and MLB Network to apoligize for the hours of free advertising they gave for that piece of tripe.

What do expect from a “fringe writer” like Roberts? LOL

May Roberts and her “career” fade with equal speed and efficiency.

And all 11,000 copies that first week were purchases by bloggers looking to debunk it.
