More About the Author

Al Bernstein is known to millions on both sides of the Atlantic as an award winning sports commentator for ESPN, Showtime and Great Britain's Channel 5. At the core of his skill set, he is a writer. He used this talent to chronicle his great broadcasting career and interesting life in his new book "30 Years, 30 Undeniable Truths." Through anecdotes, observations and story telling, Al talks about the great events he has covered and the fascinating people he has met along the way. This humorous and sometimes poignant book underscores the fact that Al has carved out a career of varied endeavors, including successes in television, radio, internet, movies, public speaking and stage performing.

Al was the voice of boxing for over 24 years at ESPN, and covered other sports there as well. In 2003, he moved to Showtime Networks as analyst on the Showtime Championship Boxing series. He also announced boxing for NBC at the 1992 and 1996 Olympic Games. Most recently, he became the first American to join Great Britain's Channel 5 as an analyst on their boxing series.

Once a pioneer of cable television, Al is now forging a new road on the internet as Executive Producer of www.BoxingChannel.tv, the first all boxing channel every created. In addition, through his company Al Bernstein Live, he continues to criss-cross the world as a speaker, emcee and spokesperson for businesses and nonprofit organizations.

In 2012, Al received the highest honor in boxing by being inducted into the International Boxing Hall Of Fame. He is one of only a few broadcasters to be so honored.

As an avid boxing fan I had to pick this up. I enjoyed it very much, although it wasn't what I expected. It's a bit less about boxing and more about Al, broadcasting, and sports but it still entertains. Al's writing style is jovial and funny and definitely worth checking out.

Funny, informative and a great read. You don't have to be interested in sports or television to enjoy this well written book. It's gentle good humor, colorful characters and original viewpoints makes it an enjoyable, and memorable, experience as many of Al Bernstein's stories and recollections resonate long after you've finished this original autobiography.

This book is firmly in Al Bernsteins's voice. While typically positive, he offers some criticism of his profession, but thankfully limits the sordid naming of names. The book is at times humorous and at times a bit cheesy. But there are enough interesting stories to make it worth a read. Plus, I'm a fan of Al's public persona, and the book is true to it.

This book reads as if you were sitting down in a cozy comfortable den with Al telling the stories to you directly.

This in my opinion is one of the more entertaining boxing books I've read. I have really enjoyed this book and had a hard time waking up the next morning cause I couldn't put it down the night before.

Slender attempt at drawing lessons from a lifetime of covering fights. A better idea would have been to recount inside knowledge of the events and personalities he has known over the more than 30 years of bringing us first-rate commentary on the most elemental of all sports. Al seems too nice a man, however, to be overly critical of anyone, so probable incapable of writing anything harsh, or exposing the seamy underbelly of this unregulated sport. I will.however, continue to watch him bring us fine broadcasts on T.V.

Al's book gives you a great insight into boxing, ESPN and broadcast TV. As a boxing fan Al has always been one of my favorites. This book opens up an insider door to the early crazy days of ESPN, his broadcasting partners and the boxers who filled the cards. It is fun to read about the past and revisit the early days. Even cooler to read the behind the scene stories that the viewers never knew was going on. Must read.

Reading this book was like having Al sitting across from me telling me a story. I loved it. His insights into the worlds of boxing and entertainment are right on.
