Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Author should be less opinonate While the book does a great job of showing the behind the scenes action at ESPN, the writer should heed the lessons of the personalities he writes about. He suggests that many of the anchors and producers are too egotistical, yet at the same time he STATES without any objectivity that Andrea Kremer is the best reporter and that Keith Olbermann is "the best talent in the two-decade history of 'SportsCenter'." While I have no problem with voicing one's opinion, to claim that Olbermann, who was disliked by so many for his smug attitude and sophomoric antics and who later got a dose or reality after he thought he could succeed at MSNBC, was the absolute, no-contest best talent is obsurd to say the least. Tell us the stories, leave the opinions to the readers.
