The author . . . writes with engaging wit, in addition to illustrating the text with charmingly simple cartoon depictions of his experiences. Ultimately, the book is a short rumination on hero worship and teases the notion of what "common folk" might want to ask someone famous they encounter.
This isn't just for Patriots fans. I related so much to the book being a 48 year old Jewish football fan from Long Island. Meeting Tom Brady is a fun read and easy to relate to in so many ways. Intelligent and witty.
--Brad Kurtzburg, STN Sports Report, Cleveland
It's a great book. A lot of fun. I breezed right through it. If you're a sports fan, you're going to love it. If you love the Patriots you'll love it. If you hate the Patriots you'll love it. And if you're a middle-aged man, you're going to love it.

Brady becomes King's 'Great White Whale,' his great obsession. He goes to games in Gillette. He watches the away games, in a sports bar in [Mystic], Conn., where many of the other Pats' fans wear their colors, scream adolescent boy's fantasies. He does a road trip. The season goes on. And what will he ask him if they ever do meet? What would others ask him? Connecting with Brady dominates his thoughts. And through it all, Brady floats just out of reach. Isn't that what true celebrity is, right in front of us, but just out of reach, too?
--Bill Reynolds, Providence Journal
Meeting Tom Brady should occupy a spot next to Fred Exley’s A Fan’s Notes on every thinking sports fan's bookshelf.
