By Steve Rushin
This book is about growing up in the 1970's. I loved it because I remember all of the author's references, like the silly sayings that kids chant, the music, the TV commercials, the pop culture of the decade. It's all there, along with the story of his life growing up with 3 brothers and 1 sister. Steve Rushin is a writer for Sports Illustrated and was the 2006 National Sportswriter of the year. In this book he tells how he loved reading and writing as a kid and dreamed of being a sports writer. He's an excellent writer and if you remember the 1970's you are show to enjoy this humorous memoir.
