"You Herd Me!" by Colin Cowherd is the story written by one of the rare sports analysts who's brave enough to speak about society obsession with sports and almost divine status of some sportsmen.
The author made funny, wise and intriguing book about the modern sports, one of those that you can easily read a several times and every time enjoy some occasionally missed detail.
Colin started his book by telling about the situations from his childhood when his sports heroes showed unworthy of their image displayed in the public.
That made him the person who use and trust his instincts, someone who want to get fuller, better, and the most time truer picture of popular athletes, from those that are served in the media.
He will start speaking about Major League Baseball, golf and Tiger Woods, basketball and James LeBron and some other sports and their heroes, making his book interesting even to those who are not fans of the sports.
While for those who are fully interested in sports, Colin Cowherd provided his different and brave views that are often not in line with the way that certain topics are treated in other media.
He manages to rise above the stories and myths that are offered to the general public and to provide the reader a sneak peek, a look beneath the surface of excellence by which popular athletes are usually marked and protected.
Overall, this is a well-made and entertaining book, a must-read for fans of Colin's radio shows but also book for readers interested in sports who want to read (sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always thought-out) author's courageous addressing to some of the topics related to lives of popular sportsmen.
