Publisher's Summary

Ernie Johnson, Jr., has been in the game a long time. With one of the most recognized voices in sports broadcasting, he is a tireless perfectionist when it comes to preparing and delivering his commentary. Yet he knows that some of sports' greatest triumphs - and life's greatest rewards - come from those unscripted moments you never anticipated.

In this heartfelt, gripping autobiography, the three-time Sports Emmy Award winner and popular host of TNT's Inside the NBA provides a remarkably candid look at his life both on and off the screen. From his relationship with his sportscaster father to his own rise to the top of sports broadcasting, from battling cancer to raising six children with his wife, Cheryl, including a special needs child adopted from Romania, Ernie has taken the important lessons he learned from his father and passed them on to his own children.

This is the untold story, the one Ernie has lived after the lights are turned off and the cameras stop rolling. Sports fans, cancer survivors, fathers and sons, adoptive parents, those whose lives have been touched by a person with special needs, anyone who loves stories about handling life's surprises with grace - Unscripted is for all of these.

    "A must listen!"

    If you can listen to Ernie's life experience and not be moved or inspired, something's wrong.

    "Amazing"

    This is a great book! And I loved hearing Ernie Johnson read it himself! As someone who grow up a braves fan. I remember riding in the car with my dad and listening to him and his dad! It is really cool. This book is definitely one of my favorite books!

    "Hard NOT To Get Emotional While Listening..."

    Let me honest worth you, I'm biased. I've been an Ernie Johnson fan for what seems like forever. So before the book even begins and to know it was narrated by EJ himself it was already one of my favorites. So after listening to it you can only imagine how I rate it...PERFECT.

    Ernie's stories are presented in such a way that you can't help but feel as if your part of the story, hell, part of the Johnson family.

    Unscripted is so full of BLACKBERRY moments, that you hate for it to end. Good thing I can always listen again 😀.

    "Great look into Ernie"

    Learned lots of things about his personal and professional life I didn't know. I do wish there was more behind the scenes of inside the NBA. Great Job

    "EJ at his greatest"

    Greatly written! Caused me to do a lot of reflection on my own life and some of my memories. I remembered a lot of my own blackberries, and for an explanation on what that is, go to the book itself. You won't be disappointed
