A Pleasant Surprise!

I've watched Linda Cohn on ESPN for years and always had the impression of the consummate professional. Not only did she know sports, but she fit right in on the male-dominated screen. Linda was the first female sportscaster I watched on a regular basis, so I decided to read the book to hopefully go beyond the figure she presented on TV. I must say, I was shocked by the engaging, funny, honest, down-to-earth person I found between the covers of this book. The style is easy and flowing, her humor left me with a smile on my face, her honesty was so refreshing; Linda was equally as open with her failures as she was with her successes. I truly felt that I "met" Linda in this book; I heard a voice that went so far beyond the professional voice I hear on TV. Linda became a friend who made me feel that it's okay to fight for what you want and to fall down along the way as long as you pick yourself back up. While this is an inspirational book for younger women who may be filled with hopes about where they want to go yet harbor doubts about how far they can go, it is also enlightening for women like myself who have "grown-up" but still feel there is much to achieve. Men and women alike, young and old, will be doing themselves a favor by reading this book, spending time getting to know Linda, and learning about themselves in the process.

Great read!!

This book is a great read for both male and female sports fans! It's funny, witty, personal and eye-opening. I was already a big Linda Cohn fan, but now I have new found respect for this pioneer.


Cohnhead is a must read for any sports fan or any female ready to take on the world! I found myself laughing hysterical at vivid descriptions of a childhood-Cohn has an amazing talent for delivering a well woven story with a lot wit and humor! Cohn's contagious passion for sports literally leaps off each page. It's no wonder why Cohn is THE most respected sports anchor-male or female!

Great Quick Read

Really enjoyed the book and can be read in a sitting. It gave me a great insight into one of the pioneers of women is sports broadcasting. Very revealing and honest. I truly enjoyed the stories - they were so vivid, I almost felt as if I were a part of them.

Loved the book!

What a great read! I recommend this book for non-sports fans too. This book is written in a style that is very enjoyable and Linda's personality shines through. It was interesting to read how she got to where she is today. She shares insight and guidance, and clearly wants to help others achieve their goals as well.
