Matthew Berry's six favorite books

Matthew Berry is the host of ESPN's Emmy Award–winning show Fantasy Football Now. His first book, Fantasy Life, profiles several hard-core devotees of fantasy sports.

One of Berry's six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
The Princess Bride by William Goldman

My all-time favorite book has something for everyone: romance, action, danger, revenge, justice, comedy. Goldman's novel transports you to a completely different world, but you totally buy in because he's exploring such universal themes.
Read about the other books on Berry's list.

The Princess Bride is one of Jamie Thomson's top seven funny books.
