I was drawn to this title as one who did a little stint in the broadcast world. Eli Gold tells the story of himself going from literally selling peanuts in the stands to entering the pressbox and covering sporting events for radio and TV.

This is a great inside view not only of the world of sports but the world of broadcasting. From riding on the bus with the minor league hockey teams to getting his first shot behind the microphone Eli Gold brings us into his life with all of the trials and tribulations that it takes to become a broadcaster.

He gives very practical advice to one who would like to enter this field. If you are interested in becoming a broadcaster, not just a sports broadcaster but any kind of broadcaster, he gives sage advice to all.

I received this book as part of the Thomas Nelson Publishers Blogger Book Review Program and therefore it was sent to me at no cost.
