What the Critics Say

"Al Bernstein came into boxing during one of its greatest eras - the 1980s. Boxing was like a flower blossoming at that time. Al was right there for it. This book is so well written that it captures that feeling and as a reader I felt like he took me back to that time. Al is still at the top of his game as a broadcaster and this book shows why he has come so far and why he has announced more boxing than anybody else." (Emanuel Steward, Hall of Fame trainer, manager, and broadcaster)
"From rodeo cowboy to nightclub singer to consummate boxing analyst, Al Bernstein's life is full of surprise, humor, and humanity. He takes us into the boxing world in a very exceptional way that I find mesmerizing. Terrific writing, it’s clear Al has a nimble mind and very, very fast hands." (Garry Shandling, Emmy award-winning comedian & actor)
"Al Bernstein has seen cable television sports grow up. In 30 Years, 30 Undeniable Truths he looks at his time in the industry through a prism that is unique to him. This book gives the reader an insight into the sometimes absurd world of television sports. There is a 31st undeniable truth: Al Bernstein is a truly funny man." (Barry Tompkins, Sportscaster for HBO, ESPN, Fox, and Showtime)

Disappointing

I really like Al Bernstein but I found this book very lightweight. It's read by Al so that's a plus point but I was hoping that the 30 Undeniable Truths was going to be more 'meaty' and interesting. Don't get me wrong, it is good in parts and there is a lot to keep the reader interested but I had hoped that after 30 years in the business there would have beeen a lot more. Worth a read but don't expect too much.
