    I always liked Verne Lundquist because he was, and is, to my mind, old-school in his sports broadcasting: giving us, the viewers, the story of what's happening in an informative way, and also knowing when to get out of the way of the action and let it speak for itself. He's not acting as a celebrity, as though we tune in just to hear his witticisms and "humor". I like how low-key he can be as well. Many sports broadcasters could, and should take lessons from him.

I enjoyed the book very much, since he is such a good storyteller, and he is willing to share his successes and high points with the other people he has worked with. This is a very pleasant, insightful, rewarding book that I recommend to people who like sports and for people who enjoy reading how hard work and just the right amount of good fortune can lead to a satisfying life.

    Great book on Verne's fabulous career and told as if he was sitting across from the reader. I always admired his honesty and positive personality on the air. He's even more so as his Biography was and , humbly tells his life's story. Any fan who has come across Verne's announcing will appreciate this view of sports, controversies and it's big personalities. A great sport book that flows smoothly from beginning to end.

    Solid insight into the Gene Chizik - Mitch Mustain - Gus Malzahn - Houston Nutt saga in the ending of the book. It was a good book. If you grew up on Verne like I did you’ll like it. Good stories.
