The Mikes are the very popular hosts of ESPN Radio’s early morning sports talk show. Part of what makes the show work is the hosts’ contrary personalities. Golic is an articulate, no-nonsense former NFL defensive lineman. Greenberg is a sports-savvy, self-described metrosexual whose mind is filled with inherently worthless minutiae that becomes valuable because, well, he makes his living as a sports yakker. The book recounts some of their best on air-discussions—in transcript form—and conveys the ubiquitous silliness that drives the show. There are details of their off-air lives and contrived misadventures, such as the time Greeny offered use of Golic’s car to the show’s listeners. Formatted as a faux self-help book, the extensively illustrated volume includes sections on why athletes will one day rule the world and why college football is the most philosophical of sports. The show’s millions of fans will surely enjoy this print version, and other sports fans who happen upon the book will be prompted to spin their radio dials and have a listen. Funny and entertaining. --Wes Lukowsky
