The last of the three Madden books I borrowed from my dad and you can definitely see the improvement in Madden's writing and story-telling style. This book is more like Hey, Wait a Minute than One knee equals two feet, so it's more Madden anecdotes and non-football stories (inasmuch as Madden has any non-football stories).

Madden talks some about his pet bulldogs, his kids, and his infamous bus.

I love that this book features 11 pages of John Madden saying what uniform numbers he thinks certain celebrities should wear. If you were wondering, Barbara Mandrell would have worn 26 on Madden's Raiders. Interestingly he includes in his list his long-term broadcasting partner Pat Summerall, picking for him No. 88 ... which, as it happens, is one of the numbers he did wear during his NFL career.

Here's a quick look into John Madden's life after coaching and before video games. Although a bit dated (the book was first released in 1988), it is a humorous and entertaining read about football and other things in life.

A quick read, but it is very dated. I enjoyed the stories of his slant on things. But over all I wouldn't recommend this book to a friend, and I won't keep this one, I'm going to donate it to the library.
