Some oral histories are really interesting, because they have a "you were here" aspect to them that a traditional history doesn't have. Others are just an excuse to allow the "writer" to slack off, and not add any context or analysis. While it is interesting (at least a bit) to read about the specifics behind the rise of ESPN, this book, in my opinion falls into the latter category. I made it about a third of the way through before I gave up.

Mark Too bad. It should have been more interesting.


Michael Berman Distilled into a 250 page book, without the repetition, it would have been really interesting. As it was, it was a bit of a slog. Kind of like listening to Chris Berman broadcast the MLB All-Star Game Homerun Derby.
