Ever since he joined the sports department of the Boston Globe in 1968, sports
enthusiasts have been blessed with the writing and reporting of Bob Ryan. Tony Kornheiser calls him the "quintessential American sportswriter." For the past twenty-five years, he has also been a regular on various ESPN shows, especially The Sports Reporters, spreading his knowledge and enthusiasm for sports of all kinds.
Born in 1946 in Trenton, New Jersey, Ryan cut his teeth going with his father to the Polo Grounds and Connie Mack Stadium, and to college basketball games at the Palestra in Philadelphia when it was the epicenter of the college game. As a young man, he became sports editor of his high school paper-and at age twenty-three, a year into his Boston Globe experience, he was handed the Boston Celtics beat as the Bill Russell era ended and the Dave Cowens one began. His all-star career was launched. Ever since, his insight as a reporter and skills as a writer have been matched by an ability to connect with people-players, management, the reading public-probably because, at heart, he has always been as much a fan as a reporter. More than anything, Scribe reveals the people behind the stories, as only Bob Ryan can, from the NBA to eleven Olympics to his surprising favorite sport to cover-golf-and much more. It is sure to be one of the most talked about sports books of 2014, by one of the sports world's most admired journalists.
A terrific memoir with lessons for young journalists, sports fans and anyone who shares the love of the games. ( Kirkus)
Over nearly half a century, Bob Ryan has seen so much, covered so much, and been a part of so much of what mattered in American sports. It would take at least a trilogy to touch on all of it. But for now, this is a damn good start. ( Bob Costas)
There is only one type of scribe left in journalism. There are no political scribes, science scribes, city-side scribes - only sports scribes. And Bob Ryan is the quintessential scribe. His dandy memoir is full of fond memories, full of fun, full of basketball - and, of course, full of Boston. ( Frank Deford)
Bob Ryan has written what is sure to be the best and most talked-about sports book of the year. Funny, irreverent, insightful, and opinionated, SCRIBE is a must-read for every fan. (Harlan Coben)
The greatest treasure and pleasure in my life is to be a friend of Bob Ryan. His brilliant new book SCRIBE allows you the same privilege. This is your front row ticket to the greatest show on earth - all courtesy of the finest story-teller and tour-guide of our lifetime. (Bill Walton)
Bob Ryan's SCRIBE reveals a legendary sportswriter at the height of his craft. Basketball fans will especially appreciate his deep knowledge of the NBA, but for fans of all sports, his enthusiasm and insights are priceless. (David J. Stern, Commissioner Emeritus, National Basketball Association)
Readers nationally will enjoy seeing Ryan work his local beat; New England readers will love it. ( Booklist)
Ryan is at his enthusiastic and eloquent best when reminiscing about his beloved Boston Celtics, giving readers deep insight into the team's championship runs in the 1970s and 1980s...Fans of Robert Lipsyte's An Accidental Sportswriter will appreciate Ryan's similarly anecdotal and partly autobiographical approach. This thoroughly engaging book is recommended to all sports enthusiasts, especially readers interested in Boston-area teams. ( Library Journal)
