This review is from: Bigger Than the Game: Bo, Boz, the Punky QB, and How the '80s Created the Modern Athlete (Hardcover)
This is a book about sports, but like all the best books about sports, it really isn't a book about sports. For those of us who came of age in the 1980s (or for thinking Americans of any age), this is a book about the profound cultural changes that shaped who we were then and who we have become: a generation of free agents for whom celebrity is currency, mass media is oxygen, and shrink-wrapped pop heroes are a drug of choice. Fascinating, and brilliantly written.
