Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I've always admired Rich Eisen's work, so it's no surprise to me that his book is very entertaining. What is a surprise is that he's somehow found time to write it in between the NFL Network's 6,347 hours of coverage of weak-side linebackers who could be draft-sleepers. That sort of programming and this book about it are both genuine public services.” —Bob Costas

“A lot of things in our lives are far less than as advertised, but this book advertises Total Access and gives you Total Access. That's right. Total Access! I'm not kidding. I liked this book and I'm not a reader.” —Tony Kornheiser, columnist for The Washington Post and co-host for ESPN's Pardon the Interruption

“Rich uses his great sense of humor to detail the life of an on-air NFL personality. It is a world I know well, but still I couldn't stop turning the pages. It is a great read---a must for anyone who loves television and Pro Football.” —Joe Buck, Fox Sports

Taking you through an entire season in the NFL, NFL Network Broadcaster Rich Eisen tells you the bare bones of the NFL season, starting with the Super Bowl, then to the Pro Bowl, Scouting Combine, Owner's Meetings, and then coming full circle through Training Camp, and the NFL season. I wouldn't call Eisen a master writer (I've caught several mistakes myself), he tells the story through anecdotes with other NFL athletes. A MUST READ for the avid NFL fan.
