Read it!- humorous, poignant, to the point - just like Hank!,
By A Customer
This review is from: This Copyrighted Broadcast (Hardcover)
Admittedly biased as a blood relative of the author, but not paid to write this review, I found Hank's book a great read. His sense of humor comes through in every chapter, almost every paragraph, and certainly in the book in total. He tells it like he sees it, including why he splits time in SF and Florida, how the world's changed since he came up in the big leagues, what it's really like being in broadcasting, and some great anecdotes in sporting history. I will never think of Mother's Day in the same way having read his Golden State Warriors story, and he made me reconsider Wilt Chamberlain's greatness as a basketball player. Baseball and Giants fans will love this book for the memories he shares, and anyone who has an aspiring truck driver at home (or broadcaster for that matter)in their family (read this as children who don't want to grow up to be doctors, lawyers or internet wizards) would do well to read this as a guide to successful parenting. Don't let your kids flunk out of college, ensure that they get lots of love and support, and they have a class D (truck driver) license as a backup. Not sure if Hank has one or not, doesn't need it now!
All in all - a future Hall of Famer wrote a great book, enjoy it!
