In his follow up to A Goomba's Guide to Life, Schirripa (aka Bobby""Bacala"" Baccilieri on The Sopranos), with the help of co-writer Fleming (After Havana), waxes poetic, goomba-style, on love. The good goomba, Schirripa says, loves his mother (and her cooking), his family, his wife and his goomar--girl on the side;""boil it all down, and the bottom line on the goomba is...love."" But needless to say, a lot of this novelty book is about sex. How do you get a girl into bed? Try""pushing her onto the sheets while she's making the bed."" What's the polite way to kick out a hooker? Give her $100 for the cab ride. Etc. Schirripa tosses in a bit of memoir with his""you might be a goomba if"" anecdotes, but--as with the first volume--this is probably for diehard fans and gag gifts only. B&w photos.
