This is the third collaboration between Madden, TV football analyst and ex-NFL coach, and New York Times sports columnist Anderson, following Hey, Wait a Minute! and One Knee Equals Two Feet. In this self-portrait Madden himself bears out his contention that one size doesn't fit all, i.e., that each of us is unique. He is revealed as delightfully unique as we read about crosscountry travels on his bus (he dislikes flying), the people he meets, his passion for Mexican food (always go to the worst part of town for the best restaurant, he advises), his reasons for leaving his shoelaces untied. He also tackles such subjects as raising children and handling athletes. Madden proves himself to be a down-to-earth, take-me-or-leave-me guy, and it will be the rare reader who won't want to take him.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY REVIEW
A funny and insightful football book. Madden rants and raves thoughout the entire book!
Hmmm, this was his 3rd book of anecdotes in about 4 years, I think he ran out of really good stories.
More fun with John Madden! A must for football fans.
Madden guides us on a lighthearted cross-country tour...unpretentious, slightly goofy & delightly as Madden always is! Filled with behind-the-scenes football stories, adventures aboard his customized Greyhound bus, America's favorite sports commentator at his very best.
