"Mike Beacom is a gifted sports writer whose style brings life to the stories he tells and insight to the people he describes. Having been the lead editor to his books on the Ohio State Buckeyes football team and the St. Louis Cardinals, I know of his dedication to thorough research, his commitment to tight deadlines, and his desire to work harmoniously with his publishers. Moreover, his love and knowledge of sports are invaluable assets to his writing talents."
