Publisher's Summary

Sports fans are hungry for access!

Fans of football are tired of lame, poorly written memoirs or technical fantasy football books. Rich Eisen is going to give them what they want - a chance to share his world of a never-ending football season. 

As host of the NFL Network's marquee show Total Access, Eisen is truly the ultimate fly on the wall and one of only a handful of people who attend almost every event on the NFL calendar from the Super Bowl and the Pro Bowl to the NFL Draft to the Hall of Fame Weekend and regular season kickoff. Talking in a style that is truly his own, Eisen provides the rabid fan with news, interviews, and analysis with his razor sharp wit honed by years of experience. 

Total Access will cover every aspect of pro football including:

  • Eisen's unique take on the off season events
  • On and off field controversies
  • The facts you don't get from a stat book

Eisen shows listeners the football world in a completely new, entertaining and insightful way, just like Jon Stewart revolutionized America's political news. It is the ultimate audiobook for fans everywhere.

Great Background Story

What about Rich Eisen’s performance did you like?

Classic Rich! Great to have the icon of NFL Access in the background while playing Madden.

Dont waste your time

If you want to hear Rich Eisen brag about him self this book is for you. NFL being the subject is the only thing that makes this book tolerable. As always Eisen can take any NFL story and make it about him. Like Al Gore believes he invented the internet, you cant help but wonder if Eisen thinks he invented the NFL. For a fringe fan you may find this entertaining but if you are true hard core NFL fan I would reccomend "A Few Seconds Of Panic" by Stefan Fetsis. Its a way better book and I took tons more from it.

Great for fans

Very in depth and entertaining. Hearing Rich Eisen read the book is great, unfortunately, sometimes it sounds like he's reading the book. My girlfriend enjoyed the book as well and now has a greater understanding of what goes on "behind the scenes" and in the off season and appreciates the regular season that much more.

Fantastic

This is a very good audiobook, and I love Rich Eisen's narration. I pay for game pass so I can keep up with NFL games in the UK and that's where I first listen/watched Rich Eisen. He is a fantastic presenter. I wish the commentators/presenters for the English football programs were as good. Very funny and entertaining listening to Rich talk about the NFL - he certainly knows his stuff. Highly recommended.

Self-serving and banal

What disappointed you about Total Access?

What you get in this audiobook is a self-regarding, indulgent account of Total Access's success story, and an overwhelmingly self-congratulatory account of how great and busy Eisen's job is. It is a festival of name-dropping and banal anecdotes which, I suspect, may only have been funny had you been there.

What was most disappointing about Rich Eisen’s story?

I really like like Rich Eisen's podcasts and I was hoping to get an insider's in-depth take on how the NFL ticks, and be entertained along the way. As much as I like Rich Eisen's broadcasting style, in this book he is just too flippant and there's just not enough factual insight. I got frustrated with all the puns and whimsy and wanted some NFL flavour: I want to know more about the events and less about the humorous aspects of having to broadcast them, and all the people Rich has worked with in doing so.

What character would you cut from Total Access?

No single 'character' - it's not that kind of book. But I could have done with fewer meaningless roll calls of 'sporting legends I have met'.

Any additional comments?

The book failed. It didn't really round out my knowledge of the NFL season behind the scenes, and it didn't deliver what I like about Rich Eisen.
