Hot Rod Hundley: "You Gotta Love It, Baby!" Limited Edition Hot Rod Hundley: "You Gotta Love It, Baby!" Limited Edition by Hot Rod Hundley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It takes off fast. It is brilliantly edited storytelling that takes off like it is going to rip your hands off. You could read over a weekend, but why let the pure enjoyment slip away?

This should be offered to all those non-reading teens who insist they love the NBA. This could very well make readers out of them all!!!

I enjoyed staying up to 3 a.m. several times to read this one. It was truly enjoyable reading, and the kind of book I hope to find more of. The author really needs to come out with more books. This one really picks up toward the end, too, pushing buttons,sparking memories of NBA great moments, players, seasons, dynasties, and educates on the off-court things that us non-players never see.

I will definitely recommend this one to many friends. Author Tom McEachin was smart to recognize the storytelling ability of Rod Hundley, his place in U.S. basketball history, and capture it all in the former player turned announcer's words.

Finding any error was difficult, but finally, a few extra spaces and tossed out helping words were missing toward the end -- other than that, it is a major hidden sports literary treasure. I think a number of non-basketball fans would find it enjoyable, too.
