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.
Dartoid and I have been friends since the early days of the old North American Open. I have watched him compete and count myself among the many who enjoy reading his column. But more than any of his columns this little book struck a cord with me. While I doubt that the ideas, or any others for that matter, will help Dartoid’s game, many of them are principles I now practice. They are presented in Dartoid’s unique humorous easy-to-read style and are certain to improve your health and the way you feel and throw. ~ Jerry Umberger
