Amazon Review: Crashing Augusta

5.0 out of 5 stars sports writing at its best, December 15, 2010

By Harvey L. Myman (California) –

This review is from: Crashing Augusta: Real life tales of sports, men, and murder (Paperback)

“If you wondered whether smart, literate sports writing still exists, look no further than this powerful book from Jonathan Littman. And while his prose alone is worth the price of admission, the true strength in the book is found in Littman’s reporting. He takes the reader inside of the greatest institutions and events in sports, from the Super Bowl to the Masters, revealing often dark corners that will never be explored by the ESPN hype machine or the beat reporters who are beholden to the teams and the leagues. He also explores the worlds of steroids and the amazing subculture of the world’s fastest runners. This is, quite simply, a remarkable book that should be required reading in graduate journalism classes.”

— Harvey Myman, president of Rocket Science Productions and former Assistant Managing Editor at the Orange County Register.
