Oral history interviews with about 20 famous sportswriters. These types of books ("The Glory of Their Times") are always told with a breezy, nostalgic style. Great memories from the Golden Age of sports and sports reporting. Rated by Sports Illustrated a few years ago as one of the top 100 sports books ever written -- and well-deserved.
