Here we see Dan's hone his craft, from his high school paper through to his first job at theFort Worth Pressand on to the glory days ofSports Illustrated. Whether in Texas, New York, or anywhere for that matter, Dan was always at the center of it all hanging out at Elaine's while swapping stories with politicians and movie stars, covering every Masters and U.S. Open and British Open for over four decades. The result is a knee-slapping, star-studded, once-in-a-lifetime memoir from one of the most important, hilarious, and semi-cantankerous sportswriters ever."
