Aug 28, Heidi Peterson rated it did not like it Shelves: On the show, Greeny was self-deprecating but not pompous. After reading this book, I have huge sympathy for Golic putting up with this privileged prima donna all those years. I won't be watching any more of Mike Greenberg's TV shows. Luckily, I got this book at an annual local sale to benefit our police department. Glad I didn't pay full price--save your money.

I can't believe the editors let this book go out as is. I guess they figured since he's sort of a celebrity that it would do well regardless. I'm guessing that years down the line his kids are going to read this book and not believe how unappreciative their dad is of his bountiful life. Basically, this book is a bunch of self-serving journal entries and very poorly organized ones at that.

Instead of having several cohesive chapters, the book has a prologue, three "sections," and an epilogue. Also, the entries are like a stream of consciousness, rambling on and on. Sometimes he goes on one of his many tangents before he eventually gets back to the point he started at. And, often when he gets back there, it definitely wasn't worth the trip. As he went to school for journalism, I expected a more cohesive book product.

I'm guessing the editors were too chicken to stand up for journalistic integrity in the book. Too bad for that. He also tries to make every single sentence or story funny. It didn't work and just made him look like he was trying too hard. Also, his viewpoint of many of his stories wasn't funny to me, but pathetic. He spends a lot of time throwing out designer names for most of his clothing, complains about hanging out with billionaires, and the worst thing of all, is his freaking out about spending a week at home with his two kids while his wife is out of town for work--and leaving him to care for their kids all alone with his Panamanian nanny.

I don't feel bad for his wife. She married him and that's on her. He puts her in a bad light and makes her seem shrewd. I'd be a little ticked off if I had to deal with him all the time, too. However, I sincerely feel bad for his psychiatrist. He documents several of their sessions and it is obvious that he just likes to hear himself talk and doesn't put any effort into delving into reality. He can't figure out why he is so unhappy when he has everything.

Hello - has he ever heard of gratitude? One of the worst stories was when his daughter had wet the bed and came in to him for assistance. Then he gets a brilliant idea. So the little girl goes over there and snuggles up with Mom. Poor excuse for a husband and a father.

I donate my books once I've read them. I feel guilty donating this one, but don't want to throw it in the trash--where it belongs. Apr 20, Allen rated it it was amazing. Distraction therapy is wonderful. Feb 16, Stephen rated it liked it. Seems to have been written before he really found his voice but you can hear the roots of his radio personality. His reflections on the early years of fatherhood, the main theme throughout the book, is somewhat superficial at least from the point of view of someone who has already lived through that process but still a diverting read with some witty commentary scattered throughout.

Feb 10, Arnold rated it did not like it. Before I read this book, I was a big fan of Mike and Mike. Greeney is an idiot. Whoever encouraged him to write this book or helped him publish it should be fired. This book showed that Greeney is a selfish self centered egotistical man. He neither mentions his broadcast partner by name or his wife. It was more shallow that a kiddie pool at the YMCA.

The only good thing I can say about this book is that the story of Michael Jordan was interesting; but it was a brief light in a shallow sea of dar Before I read this book, I was a big fan of Mike and Mike.

Why Boys Need Parents

The only good thing I can say about this book is that the story of Michael Jordan was interesting; but it was a brief light in a shallow sea of darkness. I paid a quarter for this book, and I want a refund. Feb 10, Matt rated it liked it. Greenberg tackles marriage, children, sports, being "a little famous" and many other nuances of daily life as a father, a husband and a sportscaster in his first book. The book is essentially journal entries from various times before and during fatherhood, as suggested by his therapist.

Questions?

The funniest thing about the book to me was that most of the book is about him saying or doing the wrong thing at the wrong time, which is a unique perspective of a tv personality whom most people believe are inf Greenberg tackles marriage, children, sports, being "a little famous" and many other nuances of daily life as a father, a husband and a sportscaster in his first book.

The funniest thing about the book to me was that most of the book is about him saying or doing the wrong thing at the wrong time, which is a unique perspective of a tv personality whom most people believe are infallible. He always claims on his radio show that he is just like one of us I read the entire book in sittings and it is very humorous. My two favorite parts are as follows: For the past 4 years, he has swam with her. One day, as he's suited up, the instructor laughs at him and tells him that after 4 years old, the children practice by themselves.

Nov 30, Kaliki rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed this book, from start to finish. Greenberg is thoughtful, he's humble, he's real, he's senstive about his kids, and mostly he's FUNNY! There is some great writing in this book, about sports, about the influence of sports on girls, about the influence of sports on our generation, and on the influence of our generation on sports.

But better than that, he is thoughtful and thought-provoking about sports and their place in our lives. After he bought his daughter a poster of Anna Kournikova, and was rebuked by women who were offended She is a jock. She is a beautiful woman, no question, but she is also a jock. She has big, athletic shoulders and muscular arms and legs; a generation ago she woul have been considered manly. But now she is considered sexy, and she is. And I'll tel you something else she is that is infintely more important.

You don't get to look like she does by making yourself throw up after you eat. You don't look like she does if you were on Weight Watchers at age nine. That's not how you grow up to look like Anna Kournikova. To look like Anna you've got to eat -- a lot -- and healthily. And you've got to work out. I don't mean an hour on the treadmill, I mean lifting wieghts and dedicating yourself to physical fitness.

How much better off will my little girl be if that is what she thinks is sexy? How much better off would yours be? Jun 25, Deepa rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I can tell you what I didn't learn from this book: As a quick summary, Greenberg's therapist asks him to keep a journal, and the book strings together some of the entries in his quest to figure out what it all means.

He never quite figures it out, but he does learn interesting life lessons along the way mostly involving his kids, his wife, why he loves sports, and when the internal monologue running in your head should stay internal. Despite the f I can tell you what I didn't learn from this book: Despite the fact that he doesn't achieve nirvana, the book is very funny, and worth a quick read, even if you're not a sports fan or dating one.

I read it in an attempt to understand my boyfriend better who I must admit is sometimes an idiot. And I guess I sort of buy Greenberg's explanation of why sports are so important to him.

Product details

Plus I spent many a laugh out loud moment, because the guy has one of the more hilarious tones I've read. I'd say give it a read - it's good summer, non chick lit fluff. Many successful people fail to deal with their families in the right way. Despite their creativity and professional success, they fail to confront simple obstacles in marriage or family which makes them feel stupid and frustrated.

The book introduces the experience of a well-known sports broadcaster who was able to impress and attract a wide audience achieving widespread fame. However, when he returns home he collides with his image in his wife's eyes: The life of our broadcaster turned upside down, to the extent that he realized the time has come for radical changes in order to be a wonderful husband and a successful father. The book answers awkward questions that face successful professionals when they find themselves helpless in the face of the most basic requirements of emotional life and family.

Dec 28, Kim Sasso rated it liked it Shelves: And I am a big fan of the essay, so I was kinda looking forward to a modern day Paul Hemphill kind of thing here. It was surprising to find there was not really much about the sporting world in this volume. I think if I were a parent I'd probably not have cared as much because there are several good parenting stories There were a few times towards the end when I started thinking maybe this book should be called "rich people's problems," but I stuck with it anyway.

Greeny's writing style has an easy flow to it, and here and there he says something about life or the passing of years that really hits home. Mar 08, Wes Branscum rated it it was ok. There is very littler in terms of sports in this book. Most of it seems to be Greeny complaining about his wife's pregnancy. Then he goes on to talk about how hard it was to watch 2 kids with his live in nanny. Greeny comes off very silver spoon feed and like a "better than you" prick. Always name dropping about his cloths or money, hell in one section he dropped the word Billionaire an asinine amount of times.

I dont know if this was for him to brag that he was talking to billionaires or not, however, the fact he's a Northwestern grad I'm sure it could of been written better.

My husband mentioned that he wanted to read this book. I was taken by surprise because he's not much of a bookworm like me. Since he received it he's read it every night and has to make sure he tells me stories from the book. He wants me to read it also thinking I might get a kick out of it! This book has turned my husband into a reader! For that alone I would recommend it! I liked this book very much. I watch Mike Greenberg's sports show on TV and get such a kick out of the guy. He is funny and makes no excuses for being the way he is and I love it. Well not your normal macho man but he has more personality than you would believe.

I listen to Mike and Mike on my commute to work and had read the book that he and Golic wrote together. It was a easy quick read. I was a bit surprised by some of the language Greenberg used since I have never seen or heard that from him in the past. Mike really is a great writer and kept me interested throughout the entire book. I laughed out loud reading Greeny's memoir, finding a lot to relate to as a husband and father.

He explores family and sports in a very personal way that's funny and touching. His reflections on sports though, are in a way the most touching part of the book. Greeny's clearly sad sports have lost so much innocence, but still finds beauty and joy in the ability of sports to give us heroes and something to believe in greater than ourselves. In a way he's out to save the fading beauty of sports he knew as a kid.

For those of us who've become jaded with professional sports over time, Greeny's optimism is a passionate reminder of the love we had for sports and sports heroes when we were kids ourselves. See all 90 reviews.
