online book club: official review
“I am unable to suggest any improvements for this beautifully written and professionally edited memoir. I wholeheartedly rate the book 4 out of 4 stars. Leachman's insights on advocating for medical care may be helpful to various readers. I recommend the book to those who enjoy nostalgic memoirs. It will also appeal to fans of Friday Night Lights, and of course, to fans of the sport.”
