5.0 out of 5 stars This book is like turning Hank on the radio!, May 3, 2002
Those that remember Hank Greenwald from his days as a Warriors and Giants broadcaster will enjoy his book tremendously. You can quickly tell that he deals with the written word as well as he did with the spoken word. The first night I read the book, I stayed up until 4 a.m. reading. There are a multitude of subjects he covers, all with wit, charm and personality. He not only has in-depth writing of his early years at Syracuse University and the East, but also his family, life in Australia, study of General MacArthur, the later years in the Bay Area with both the Warriors and Giants, and some general feelings about baseball. His dry wit, so common on his broadcasts, is quite evident throughout the book and may only be matched by his son Doug, now doing baseball in California. Greenwald retired from baseball broadcasting in 1996, to the chagrin of many, and now enjoys retirement life after a long and illustrious career. For anyone who listened to Hank on KNBR radio over the years, or for those who enjoy reading about sports broadcasters in general, this book is truly outstanding reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Voice of the Mets, Norte Dame, and television sports, May 3, 2002
I became a Lindsey Nelson fan, like others, simply by hearing his voice and broadcasting style many times. He had, to me, one of the most recognizable voices in sports broadcasting. Nelson's style was low-key, informative, and easy to digest. His book is excellent--those who remember him or followed sports during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s will especially enjoy the book. Nelson was not only a great broadcaster, but shows he is a terrific writer also. He actually started in the newspaper business as a youngster, and his flair for writing is evidenced throughout the book. He was the play-by-play voice of the Mets for 17 years and also for many years the voice of Notre Dame football highlights. His tales of his early, and later years at the University of Tennessee are outstanding. Although he passed away in 1995, his legend continues to shine as UT's baseball facility is named Lindsey Nelson Stadium. A fitting tribute for a wonderful man, and an outstanding sports broadcaster for over 30 years.
