Product Details


"Mark Oppenheimer's journey from loquacious preschooler to smart-ass grade-schooler to champion high-schooler is funny, painful, and brutally honest. Wisenheimer may focus on the small, strange world of competitive debate, but its message is much broader: that words, properly harnessed, can set you free." --Stefan Fatsis, author of Word Freak and A Few Seconds of Panic "Here is the truth about blurbs on books: everyone hates asking for them, and no one enjoys the process--though they are honored by the request--of giving them. This whole asinine tradition should be put to rest, but probably won't, because asinine things are forever, while good things, like the old Yankee stadium, are destroyed. Anyway, Mark Oppenheimer is a great guy and a super writer, and you should read his book, even if you should ignore this blurb." --Elizabeth Wurtzel, bestselling author of Prozac Nation "Do not mess with Mark Oppenheimer or he will verbally dismember you. If you know what's good for you, you'll buy this funny book." --A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically "Every time Mark Oppenheimer won a high school debate tournament, he scored a point for all us wisenheimers. This witty book will strike a chord with all recovering smart-asses who recall their adolescent triumphs with a mixture of pride and mortification." --Anne Fadiman, author of At Large and At Small and The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down "An intimate look at the high school team--no, not the football team--the debate team! You think only physical athletes make interesting subjects, try mental athletes. Who knew? In part a play by play look at the game. In part a story of one wisenheimer, and his transition from high school star, to starting all over as a lowly freshman at Yale. I was happy to follow him on his exceptional journey." --Judy Blume, bestselling author of Summer Sisters
