About the Author
Stephen A. Smith rose from a reporter on high school sports at the Daily News (New York) and college and NBA beat reporter at The Philadelphia Inquirer to become the face of ESPN and its most important on-air personality. He is the star of the #1 morning sports talk show, First Take; a premiere analyst on NBA Countdown throughout the NBA season; and the host and producer of the podcast K[no]w Mercy with Stephen A. Smith. Smith has more than 12 million followers across social media platforms, and his opinions on sports make daily headlines. Follow him on Twitter @StephenASmith.
"Stephen A.'s passion for sports simply can't be overstated. It exists in every fiber of his body, so when he speaks about it, or writes about it, it is raw, deeply authentic, and immensely entertaining. As you will discover on every page of this book, he brings this passion to anything he tackles."
--Bob Iger, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company
"Don't call it a comeback--my man was let go by ESPN and came back bigger than ever. Coming from Hollis, Queens (aka home of hip-hop royalty Run-DMC), the man tells it like it is, and this book is the blueprint of tenacity. Pick it up and earn twenty years of wisdom just like that. This book gets five stars from me."
--Fat Joe, author of The Book of Jose: A Memoir
"You may think you know Stephen A. from his hot takes, his First Take. But you won't know what makes him tick, what makes you love him or hate him, what brought him back from the television graveyard and made him irresistibly must-see for nearly twenty years until you read his autobiography. Do it, damnit!"
--Michael Wilbon, cohost of Pardon the Interruption and analyst on NBA Countdown
