Review: Big Russ and Me: Father and Son--Lessons of Life

User Review  - Bryan Doughty - Goodreads

This is a thoroughly enjoyable book that is a super quick read. It offers great insight into why Tim turned out the way he did, where he came from and why more than anything else he kept pushing forward. Unfortunately he is no longer with us, but this book is a treasure. Read full review

Review: Big Russ and Me: Father and Son--Lessons of Life

User Review  - MisterFweem - Goodreads

I guess I'll never understand the Boomer fascination with baseball. And this book doesn't help. The chapter where Russert spent reminiscing about baseball was interminable. This is, however, an unusual autobiography. Not full of blather. Sorry. This is a terrible review. I'm exhausted. Read full review
