Reviews

"Weinreb is to be applauded for recognizing in the landscape of the '80s - whether he's talking about sports, politics, or ESPN - 'a full- on embrace of American excess at its most excessive.'"
-"Boston Globe"

"There was a time when sports were mostly legend; today, they're mostly marketing opportunities. Michael Weinreb has figured out when that evolution happened and how that transformation worked. Deeply researched and kinetically narrative, "Bigger than the Game" is technically about the year 1986, but it's actually about the jarring recognition of a new reality we can't escape."
-Chuck Klosterman
