Portfolio: 2008 The Year In Darts Book Cover
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation LLC
Humorist Paul Seigel (aka “Dartoid”) has written more than 400 columns about the sport of darts. His popular column, Dartoid’s World, is regularly featured by Bull’s Eye News, the American Darts Organization’s Double Eagle, and numerous other darts publications around the globe. His first book, It’s a Funny Game, Darts. Life. (Totem Point, 2005) met with high acclaim and sold eight copies. His second book, The Year 2008 in Darts (Xlibris, 2010), is expected to reach double digits. Paul lives in Tampa, Florida with his wife of 30 years, Marylou. They have a daughter, Jami, and share their home with a golden retriever, Bentley, and Rompin’ Romy the Tsunami, a street puppy which Paul carried home following a darts adventure in Bucharest, Romania.
More than anyone, Dartoid has found a way to capture the spirit of the ever-evolving sport of darts – from its roots amidst the smoke and camaraderie of the pub to the spotlight of the professional stage where darts is a business and the very best can earn hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. 2008 – The Year in Darts is a good read, a solid history, and certain to bring many smiles along the way. ~ Howie Reed
