"For Michigan Fans Only" is an in-depth look at Michigan Sports from the people who know them best, the fans. Written by best selling author of over 40 sports related works, Rich Wolfe, "For Michigan Fans Only" is a hard cover, quality, easy to read look at athletics at the University of Michigan in the format of fan stories.

Available exclusively for purchase online until next year, true Michigan fans will revel in the opportunity to experience these stories before anyone else. Packed with color photos, "For Michigan Fans Only" will be a welcome addition to any die-hard's collection. The book will retail for $24.95.

"I have a lot of fun writing these books and I think that shows through when people read them" said author Rich Wolfe, "People get excited about the books". Divided into 6 chapters, each section looks at the many different aspects of Michigan Athletics and the stories that make them great. "The loyalty and the passion that these Michigan fans have is just outstanding" commented Wolfe, "The Ohio State chapter is really great. It gives a whole new perspective on the rivalry between the two schools".

Like Michigan athletics however, this book couldn't simply blend in with the pack. Lone Wolfe Press has decided to place the entire book online at no charge.
