You Herd Me!: I'll Say It If Nobody Else Will | [Colin Cowherd]

You Herd Me!: I'll Say It If Nobody Else Will

In this age of billion dollar athletic marketing campaigns, “feel good” philosophy with no connection to reality, and a Sports Media echo chamber that’s all too eager swallow whatever idiotic notion happens to be in vogue at the moment, it’s tough to find people who aren’t afraid to say what they’re really thinking.

Publisher's Summary

"There are really two games, the one you see and the one you don't. The way I see it, the best way to use access to both worlds is to illuminate and reveal, not idolize and adore. It's better to be wrong than to be played for a fool." – Colin Cowherd

In this age of billion dollar athletic marketing campaigns, “feel good” philosophy with no connection to reality, and a Sports Media echo chamber that’s all too eager swallow whatever idiotic notion happens to be in vogue at the moment, it’s tough to find people who aren’t afraid to say what they’re really thinking.

But that’s where Colin Cowherd comes in. As his millions of fans on ESPN Radio and ESPNU already know, Colin is the rare sports analyst who’s brave (or crazy) enough to speak his mind—even if it pisses some people off. Of course, it helps that a lot of what Colin has to say is simply hilarious. Lots of writers can tell you about Boston’s storied sports history. But how many can tell you why the city of Boston is America’s five year old? Lots of writers will brag about the stuff they got right, but how many will happily list all the calls they got completely and utterly wrong? Whether he’s pointing out the stupidity of conspiracy theories, explaining why media bias isn’t nearly as big a deal as many assume, or calling out those who prize short term wins over sustainability, Colin is smart, thought-provoking, and laugh-out-loud funny. Some of the questions he’s not afraid to ask in You Herd Me! include:

  • Is Tiger Woods really a sex addict—or does he just have good PR?
  • Is “work-life balance” really the ideal we should all strive for—or is that just a way for people feel better about mediocrity?
  • Is talent really all it’s cracked up to be—or can too much talent actually be counterproductive?
  • Is the X games really a sport—or would we all be better off if we admitted it’s something else entirely?
  • Is Hell really a supernatural place of fire and brimstone—or is it actually just another word for living in Tampa?

Unapologetically entertaining and packed with behind-the-scenes insights you won’t get anywhere else, You Herd Me! is unlike any other sports book ever written.

    "Great book, Repeats majority of themes from radio"
    Would you listen to You Herd Me! again? Why?

    No, great book but no need to listen again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Colin Cowherd


    Which scene was your favorite?

    N/A


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to Colin Cowherd's podcast religiously and have gained a ton of insight on life and sports from his perspective. I think he is the most thought provoking personality on radio and made me reanalyze many aspects of my personal and business life. The book is essentially a condensed version of all the themes of his radio show so I would recommend it to anyone who is interesting in American sports or bettering themselves.

    "Great"

    Classic Cowherd. A great read if you follow his radio show. Why is there a minimum word count on this?

    "Solid read"

    If you like his talk show, you'll love the book. It's chapter after chapter of his opening rants. Insightful, with a different perspective on many topics regarding sport, politics and life.

    "Worth the read / listen"

    After Dan Patrick, Cowherd is a clear #2 in my book in regards to sports talk radio. I laughed out loud several times during this audiobook and thought that Cowherd a good job as the narrator.

    A few reviews I read previously said that it was redundant from his radio show. I guess if you call discussing sports redundant, then yes.

    Will pick up his next book if he ever decides to write another.

    "like his show but a bit better..."

    a little more real feeling than his show which is good but also some topics he's beat to death if you listen to him all the time

    "Nice Listen"

    I love The Herd on ESPN, so when I got the book I was hoping for more of the same. It was, and was everything else I hope for in a book by this guy...
