      The book offers a nuanced look at ESPN, does some top-notch TV-biz reporting on the early days of the cable industry, and offers compelling behind-the-scenes stories about a number of big events. Latest on Notre Dame Fighting Irish quarterback Ian Book including news, stats, videos, highlights and more on ESPN.

      Jemele Hill, the ESPN host who departed the sports network a year after tweeting that President Donald Trump was a white supremacist, has a book deal.   Pretty much everybody subsequently quoted in the book complains about how remote and dead Bristol was, but the lack of distractions meant that staffers breathed, slept, ate and especially drank ESPN all day, all night, all week, all year. It's bizarre how close ESPN came to not happening, given what an obvious slam dunk it looks like in retrospect.

    Sports fans will enjoy this well-researched and fascinating look at how ESPN has impacted both television and the viewing habits of millions of watchers."--Library Journal "This well-researched book is a gold mine of information about the origin and philosophy of ESPN. Highly recommended."--Choice. The edition of ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue features athletes from a variety of different sports, including football, soccer, surfing, and golf. By Lindsay Kimble.
