Welcome. You no doubt have come here after finding a review elsewhere. If there's another place on the Internet that has just sports book reviews, I haven't found it. So thank you for your visit.

I've been writing these reviews for several years. Feel free to look around here and post a comment.

Also, for other viewpoints, click on the link that says "Learn more about this book" to go to You can even order the book at the usual big discounts.

I save reviews for five years from publication. In other words, any review of a book published from 2011 to 2016 will be here until the end of 2016. Then it is sent off to That means if I review a 2011 book in June 2016, it will only be here until Jan. 2017. 

Some of the reviews are written for The Buffalo News, my employer. So there's a link to them in order for you to read the full review. I also do an end-of-the-year blog for The News with my favorite sports books. 

Have you written a sports book (or published one) that you'd like to see reviewed here? I'm willing to take a look at your book, at the least. Drop me a note first at my email address. I can read printed copies or Kindle versions. The catch is that I am a one-man operation, and I am only going to read books that sound interesting to me. In other words, your chances of getting read are pretty good if it covers the same subject as the ones listed here.

I tend to like the books reviewed here, because I am picking them out for my own entertainment. But you will get an honest review. Some people can't handle that - like the guy who tracked me down to my boss at work (who had nothing to do with it) to complain. I don't need that sort of aggravation. 

Questions? Leave a comment. And thanks again for the visit.
