    For just over 30 years Al Bernstein has been one of the most recognizable and respected sportscasters in America. In those three decades, the “voice of boxing” reported the funny, poignant, and bizarre events that helped shape sports television, ESPN, boxing, Las Vegas, and Showtime. With an eclectic cast of characters that includes every big name in boxing, including Marvin Hagler, Mike Tyson, Floyd Mayweather, and Manny Pacquiao, as well as such names in the entertainment world as Rodney Dangerfield, Sylvester Stallone, Russell Crowe, Jerry Lewis, and Jack Nicholson, Bernstein's memoir will have you in stitches.

    What did you love best about Al Bernstein?

    It didn't feel like a book, but rather a night sitting drinking with a new friend listening to their stories. The inside personal look at boxing and sportscasting was a wonderful trip through a world that the fan and spectator doesn't get to see or experience. A trip between the ropes, into the locker room and behind the door of the training gym. While I've been never been much more than a casual boxing fan, aware of the 'big' stories, but not the inner drama. This reignited my interest in the sport, its personalities and its history. Thanks for the virtual "night out" Al!


    What other book might you compare Al Bernstein to and why?

    None that I've read recently come to mind.


    What about Al Bernstein’s performance did you like?

    His passion, his authenticity, his vulnerability all added to the experience of sharing the book with him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I was reading the physical book, rather than listening to the audio book (an experience I'm not particularly familiar with), I think this would be a book I would find myself reading long after my bedtime. I'd be forcing myself to stop for the night to get a little sleep instead of reading.
