Item description for "My Ox Is Broken!": Detours, Roadblocks, Fast Forwards and Other Great Moments from TV's The Amazing Race by Adam-Troy Castro, Billy Gaghan & Carissa Gaghan...

Fans of the Emmy Award–winning reality television show The Amazing Race are offered fresh insights and gossip from insiders and former participants—such as the Gaghan family from Season Eight and Jon and Al from Season Four—in this guide to the popular program. From dysfunctional team dynamics and obnoxious racer tantrums to jaw-dropping errors and especially endearing moments, contestants and events from the show's eight-season tenure are discussed in shocking detail. Additional thoughts on the authenticity of the race, the “real” rules of the contest, the single best player in the show's history, and especially notable contestants are also included.

Reviews - What do customers think about "My Ox Is Broken!": Detours, Roadblocks, Fast Forwards and Other Great Moments from TV's The Amazing Race?

This quick read made me giggle  Aug 28, 2008
I had read good reviews of this book all over but I generally dislike books without much dialogue so I put off buying it. I finally broke down and spent the cash and am glad that I did. Even though I haven't watched every season of the Amazing Race, I got quite a few chuckles about the racers and the races themselves.
It is written with a bit of generalization so it isn't nit picky and focuses more on the people and their personalities and interpersonal relations.
A nice quick read that makes you smile and laugh.
Great, but accurate?  Oct 28, 2007
This was the book that I expected. A great summary of the Amazing Race, as well as some humor. But, what kinda of got me were the inaccuracies. While reading, I marked each page with a mistake (in all, about 10 or 15). Overall, though, a good buy.
We Were There  Aug 23, 2007
We were participants in the Amazing Race 7, which we have heard was the favorite show among fans. We were the Energizer Bunnies mentioned in this book. We found the author's assesment of what actually happened fairly accurate, but there were many incidents that were reviewed that should have been explained in depth to get the impact of what actually happened. He did a good job basing his research mainly on the edited version shown on TV. There was so much more. Maye we'll write our own book someday. It was more than interesting!!!!

Nothing New  Mar 27, 2007
If you've watched the show there is virtually nothing new in this tome. It does serve as a great recap if you've forgotten anything, and a decent introduction if you're late to the party.
My Ox Is Broken  Jan 30, 2007
This book is a synopsis of races 1 - 9. No new information is really given. There are a couple of interviews with racers but again, no real new information. No behind the scene information. And a pretty screwed justification of why we should not be so down on Flo. This book offers nothing new and skips over alot of the old.
