Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sports take a backseat to covering sports in this feisty, full-contact memoir. Sportswriter Feinstein recounts his exploits gathering material for his bestselling sports epics…his punchy, evocative prose and irreverent jabs at superstars make for lively play-by-play.” Publishers Weekly
“The author tells wonderfully rich stories of the people he’s encountered through his career as a sports reporter…Narrator David de Vries is as engaging as this book is interesting. His accents and tones are wonderful, covering a range of people from European-born athletes to stern American security guards. De Vries handles the funny and poignant stories with aplomb.” AudioFile
“Engaging stories from a storyteller who doesn’t just know his subject—he loves it.” Kirkus Reviews
