Don Stradley of Ring Magazine: “This book is one of the more humorous looks at sports broadcasting that you are ever likely to read. Using a bright and engaging style, Bernstein is a charming storyteller.”

Garry Shandling, Emmy Award winning comedian and actor: “From rodeo cowboy to nightclub singer to consummate boxing analyst, Al Bernstein’s life is full of surprise, humor and humanity. He takes us into the boxing world in a very exceptional way that I find mesmerizing. Terrific writing.”

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. There is a 31st Undeniable Truth: Al Bernstein is a very funny man.”
