What People Are Saying:
"What a delight for kids and parents of split or mixed Bama-AU families! At last, a delightful explanation!"
--Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump
"A wry, delightful and very funny look at the ultimate kind of 'mixed marriage,' pigskin-style, and a primer on how families can (and should!) enjoy the rivalry in a positive fashion. We need more fans on both sides who think like Deb Hiett!!"
--Van Allen Plexico, Wishbone columnist for the War Eagle Reader and
co-author of Decades of Dominance and Season of Our Dreams
"Although the Alabama-Auburn rivalry itself is no laughing matter, this hilarious little book manages to put it all in perspective."
--Chad Gibbs, author of Love Thy Rival: What Sports' Greatest Rivalries Teach Us About Loving Our Enemies and God and Football: Faith and Fanaticism in the SEC
"Beautifully illustrated and riotously funny. I love it!"
--Edward Renehan, author of Understanding Kerouac's ON THE ROAD; Dark Genius of Wall Street; and other books
"I've written books about weird belief systems, cults, extremist politics, and conspiracy theories. I'm pretty sure that obsessive college football fandom has a place in there somewhere -- and I know that Uncle Bill, with his bizarre ideas about Paul Finebaum and the Illuminati and his abiding suspicion of the Notre Dame rule, fits right in. Deb Hiett's and Amy Lynn Stevenson's When Mommy Loves Bama and Daddy Loves Auburn is a hoot -- unless of course, it's a Masonic plot, in which case you should be very afraid.
--Arthur Goldwag, author of Isms & Ologies; Cults, Conspiracies, and Secret Societies; and The New Hate: A History of Fear and Loathing on the Populist Right
"This is a frank and honest look at an age-old rivalry that has torn families apart. Not since the East/West Coast Swing Dancing Wars has an American pastime caused so much grief. Now the healing can begin. Knowledge is power."
--Wendi McLendon-Covey, comedic actress ("Bridesmaids," "The Goldbergs")
"It's great!! For all of us southerners that appreciate football, When Mommy Loves Bama and Daddy Loves Auburn is very entertaining -- and so very true!"
--Missy Mercer, author of Auburn University Cookbook
"Even if you didn't grow up in an Alabama/Auburn mixed household, you'll love the sweet humor of When Mommy Loves Bama and Daddy Loves Auburn. It's enlightening, incredibly entertaining, and eye-opening to see it all from the kids' perspective. If you've ever been caught up in a rivalry in front of your kids, don't miss this book!"
--Kathy Caprino, women's success coach and author of Breakdown, Breakthrough: The Professional Woman's Guide to Claiming a Life of Passion, Power, and Purpose
