Reviews - What do customers think about Summerall: On and Off the Air?

Personal and Revealing  Nov 10, 2006
A wonderful account of the 40's, 50's, and 60's and beyond. If you followed college and pro football in those years, this is nostalgia with a capital N. Pat's successes and problems are laid out in a humble way, and his faith statement will be hard to match anywhere in professional sports. This book reads like a (lengthy) newspaper account of the great game (wherever and whenever it was played).
Ultimately depressing  Oct 31, 2006
Pat Summerall was best known as a football and golf announcer on TV. It would be great to read more about those happier days. Instead, the book ends with a very fragmented account of his alcoholism. It will scare you off drinking. Pat survived by quitting drinking and getting a liver transplant. He is still alive, but no longer interesting, and his appearance is cadaverous.
Unlike John Madden's books  Aug 30, 2006
Pat Summerall, a terrific longtime sports broadcaster, writes in a straightforward, easy to read style. It's impossible not to "hear" his enjoyable Southern speaking voice as he tells about his college football days at Arkansas, his NFL and broadcasting careers and his terrible fight with alcohol abuse . His former CBS and Fox broadcast booth partner, John Madden, wrote several funny and opinionated books in the 1980s. On and Off the Air is unlike those in content and style. Summerall reveals much more about himself personally than did Madden and discusses the nuts and bolts of how television covers professional football. Like when the two called games together, John Madden is the frenetic, bombastic commentator while Pat Summerall comes across as the smooth, down to earth pro. An excellent book, I wish it were a bit longer.
A good read  Aug 27, 2006
I enjoyed ths uplifting story of Pat Summerall's life and successes. There are quite a few good anecdotes about his years in football and broadcasting.
