    Not as good as the one McCambridge wrote about the NFL, but still interesting.

    Some really interesting moments, but not sure how well this has aged. It served more as an education on the magazine business in the 1950's-90's than a behind the scenes account of my favorite magazine. Interesting, but just for a niche audience.

I came across this book when looking for books for sports illustrated which is my ed fair subject. I picked this book up so that I could learn more about sports illustrated. This book is about the history of sports illustrated from before the first issue in 1954 to about the late 90's in 1996. The major themes in this book to never give up on a project, do not give up until the end or even the last and final deadline because you may have a brilliant idea just waiting. And also to not be afraid of big names because they are just like you and just as nervous. I had large expectations for this book before reading it because of its highly rated reviews by known authors like Mike Lupica and the New York Times. My expectations were wrong because the book turned out to be loaded with not so exciting facts and long dialogue. But they was also exciting dialogue and arguments throughout the book as well. This book is written in a third person type way. Which I did not like personally because to me I believe third person writing is boring in most cases. I would recommend this book to people who are very interested in sports illustrated and their history. I would also recommend this book to those who enjoy a slower read that takes a while for the plot to develop. I would not recommend this book to readers under thirteen years of age because it is very profane and vulgar in some of the saying that the writers spoke. I would also not recommend this book to a reader who likes adventure for this book is adventurous at all unless you call writing and dialogue about writing adventurous or a international flight from London to New York city adventurous. This will conclude my review on the book "The Franchise: a history of sports illustrated magazine" by Michael MaCambridge.

    A decent book on the history of Sports Illustrated. Kind of dry during a lof ot of parts of the book, but interesting tidbits throughout the book on my favorite magazine growing up. Was cool to read stuff about the Curious Case of Sidd Finch story, including the cool stuff with the subhead and how the story came to fruition. Was also cool to read about some of the old stories that went into the issues and some that weren't given the cover even when they should have been.

Kind of dry during a lof ot of parts of the book, but interesting tidbits throughout the book on my favorite magazine growing up. Was cool to read stuff about the Curious Case of Sidd Finch story, including the cool stuff with the subhead and how the story came to fruition. Was also cool to read about some of the old stories that went into the issues and some that weren't given the cover even when they should have been. The stuff about who ran the paper and why was kind of boring to me since I don't know a whole lot about the managing editiors and publishers. I wanted to read more about the writers but it seems they only go into great detail about a couple of them (Dan Jenkins, Frank Deford, Steve Rushin, Rick Reilly). This book is probably only for die-hard fans of the magazine, and I'm not sure I'd even consider myself that. Not bad, but not great either.
