A review of Eli Gold:From Peanuts To The Pressbox

Eli Gold knew what he wanted to be when he was just a kid. A sports broadcaster. And he took advantage of every opportunity that came his was to reach his goal.
This is Eli's story. Growing up in Brooklyn, skipping class, working at Madison Square Garden. Eli knew he had to make things happen if he was going to work in sports. He had an understanding mother, and great idols and mentors that helped him along the way.
There are some great sports stories provided, from the world of major and minor league hockey, minor league baseball, college and professional football, and NASCAR. Eli Gold has been here, there, and everywhere during his career as broadcaster, play-by-play, statistician, and many other positions.
Sports fans will find this to be a great read, full of interesting stories, funny, sad, and entertaining. A bit jumpy at times, but overall, I was thoroughly impressed.
