Emanuel Steward, Hall Of Fame trainer, manager and broadcaster: “Al came into boxing during one of its greatest eras, the 1980’s. Boxing was like a flower blossoming. Al was right there. This book is so well written that it captures that feeling. I felt like he took me back to that time.”
Barry Tompkins, Sportscaster for HBO, ESPN, Fox and Showtime: “Al Bernstein has seen cable television grow up. In this book, he looks at his time in the industry through a prism that is unique to him. This book gives the reader an insight into the sometimes absurd world of television sports.
