From the glory days of Joe Namath, to the Rangers' quest for a Stanley Cup, to the whacky world of boxing, Jerry Eskenazi has captured these wonderful moments. It's a great read by a premier reporter."--Marv Albert, voice of the New York Knicks and NBA on TNT
Jerry Eskenazi is a consummate professional--an honest and honorable man in a field where those elements are too often overlooked. He has never forgotten the importance of having a sense of fairness, a sense of humor, and a genuine passion for his profession. Jerry always understood that it is the games, and the athletes who compete, that make people want to read the sports page. He has earned an elite level of trust from his readers and the sports figures he covers, because he writes what he sees. He knows what he's doing, and he prepares for each assignment in a way that displays his appreciation and respect for athletic competition and the personalities involved."--Bill Parcells, Head Coach, Dallas Cowboys
"During the years when Jerry was covering boxing, I found him to be insightful, knowledgeable, and at all times--fair. His coverage of the events and the sports was a credit to the fans, the boxers and his newspaper, the New York Times. Only the news that was fit to print' was the slogan, and Jerry certainly had a lot printed. His main beats were boxing and football, but he could cover any beat with honesty and integrity. The boxers always knew if they gave Jerry an interview, the words didn't get twisted and neither did mine. Thanks Jerry for so many dedicated years to your profession. I can't wait to read these memoirs."--Don King, President & CEO, Don King Productions, Inc.
