Memorable from start to finish, heartwarming, well written and beautifully narrated. With her first book she's captured her funny, endearing and emotionally uplifting tales with each chapter. Each person that she has come to know through the years somehow get absorbed into your life. After hearing her put her experience with each of them. They are the stars that shine in her world, that have led her and helped her along her life. Hearing about her family and friends are what sets this book apart. The personal conviction, and relatable joys and fears will pull in you in. I thought this was rather well produced and I enjoyed listening to Lindsey emote with such brilliance and deep rooted honesty. This candid book is quite the treasure for any lone pirate at the party to unearth. Thank you Brooke and Lindsey for the sharing your inspirational memories with such a collective audience of both cheerful fans and naysayers alike. This was a stupendous voyage of discovery and life changing shenanigans and heartache. I hope you two continue writing and set sail for more grand adventures on the high seas of life. Love your music, Lindsey :D

Yet he knows that some of sports' greatest triumphs - and life's greatest rewards - come from those unscripted moments you never anticipated.

Ernie Johnson deserves an award for this book. You don't want to miss out on the incredible journey of faith, family and fun that he has been blessed to unpack. to the listener. The life lessons that his dad and wife have taught him are a highlight for sure. What a treat! I was particularly impressed and grateful to have been given the opportunity to hear about his family. The joys and the pains amidst the twists and turns that unexpectedly helped him place his faith in God, the Father. It' is truly satisfying to hear that from a man of integrity and humility. You would have never have guessed it by just hearing his voice, or seeing him on TNT's Inside the NBA. After reading/listening to this book, I have come to recognize that he's a gifted author, writer/poet sportscaster, husband, father and friend. This is a book that I really enjoyed listening to. The audible narration is loud and clear. He keeps his emotions in check. Even though there are some truly heartfelt moments where you want to shed a tear. The way he thrills you with those important milestones in his life. And how he inspires you as you read is amazing in its own right. To God be the glory. There's nothing crass, immature or off putting in his book. He simply tells it like it is. Finally, "Unscripted: The Unpredictable Moments That Make Life Extraordinary is a "blackberry moment" that should not be missed. Great job, Ernie!
