Basically, this entire book consists of both Mike's (Greenberg & Golic) making fun of each other while also perusing some random sports topics. There is really no structure to the book whatsoever, and it is filled with ns and plenty of "flash" on each page. The book worked for me, though, be Some books are meant to inform. Others are meant to entertain. If you understand that "Mike & Mike's Rules" falls squarely into the latter camp, you'll have fun with the experience.

Mike & Mike: Never leave a game early

Mike & Mike: Never leave a game early. An excerpt from Greeny and Golic's book, "Mike and Mike's Rules for Sports and Life". Courtesy Mike Greenberg & Family Greeny followed his dad's sports rule religiously, but had some trouble enforcing it with his own son. Greeny: It's never easy, but being a fan means learning the rules, a code of fandom, and I was fortunate to learn them early. I started going to games well before I went to my first day of school. My father would take me, and taught me well. Dad? Arnold Greenberg: Thanks, Michael. I remember when your mother and I took you to your first basketball game at Madison Square Garden.

ESPN's star comedic duo, Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg, bring their radio and TV sports shtick to the listener in this hilarious audiobook, which includes their definitive list of rules to live by. This is for all ESPN devotees, all Mike and Mike fans, and fans of audiobooks like Dennis Miller's.

Every morning more than three million listeners tune in to Mike and Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio—mostly to hear the Mikes’ (Golic and Greenberg) riotous back-and-forth on everything from why baseball managers should dress like real people to how to lose a fight with the wife with dignity. In Mike and Mike’s Rules for Sports and Life, the beloved mic jockeys put their unique stamp on, well, the rules for sports and life. In years on the road, in the studio, and at home, Greeny and Golic have learned that it’s all about the big stuff: separating order from chaos, ensuring our survival as a species, and keeping peace. For instance: • The Fourth of July should be eliminated and replaced with an Independence Day that falls on the first Thursday of the month, creating a four-day weekend like Thanksgiving, which, by the way, could do without the Detroit Lions.• “The Human Element” in sports officiating and weather forecasting sucks. • The top pick in the NBA draft lottery should go to the team that came closest to making the playoffs—not to the team that rips off fans by mailing it in after the All-Star break. • When someone says, “I’m being completely honest,” they might as well be claiming that they go to Hooters just for the wings.• Kids do not get to eat french fries for breakfast. Ever. And who cares what the kids at the next table are ordering.• No more designated hitter! If you’re one of Golic and Greeny’s legions of followers, you probably can’t get enough of this sort of provocative, hilarious, and occasionally obsessive stuff. And if you’re one of those fans who live by the rule “There oughta be a rule,” then Mike and Mike’s Rules for Sports and Life is the book for you.
  • For sports fans, some of the best bits & more from the tv & radio show that is on a bit early if you're unemployed. Mike Greenberg takes charge most of the time. Mike Golic is now well into his second career as co-anchor of the show. He was a defensive lineman in the NFL for nine years. He seems chronically grumpy mainly because he has to to put up with "nancy boy" Mike Greenberg. For his next career Greenie wants to be baseball commissioner. He has some new rules for the game that make sense: more day games & bring back double headers which would in turn shorten the season so they wouldn't have to play outside in November in Minneapolis or New York or Boston. Some make no sense. No soup will be served in any ball park. Bring back the troughs in the men's rooms, like in Wrigley field. Ah, tradition. They talk about the unwritten rules of baseball. They are moronic, numerous & as old as the game. I love them & woe be to the player that breaks them. Other sports are covered too. The "sheets of integrity" for "March Madness" college basketball is classic. Golic has no integrity when it comes picking his 64 teams. They have an annual wager that is a highlight & has included in the past Greenie milking a cow on live & Golic getting his rather hairy body waxed. But I almost forgot, this a book review not their show review. There are lots of really good pictures, thus you can read the book pretty quick. But you'll go back to read it again. For the real sports freak it is attractive enough to be a coffee-table book.

  • Guys I LOVE you both and I LOVE your early morning radio show which I often get up at 2 o'clock in the early morning to listen to here in Alaska. BUT I can NOT give you a top rating on your book because it simply DOES NOT FLOW SMOOTHLY for me. OH YES you do NOT want to hear how Colin Cowherd's book flows for me. Smiles.

  • This book is just excerpts from their talk show in the morning its not what I had expected a little disappointed but will still read it none the less. I do like their show but not a fan of this particular book because the title made me think something totally different than what it actually turned out to be.

  • I understand the reviewers who were disappointed in the book. It is a 'Mike and Mike' coffee table book. There are vignettes of their show, small blurbs that hit the high spots. All of it would be very recognizable to regular listeners. This book doesn't cover new ground but the format is fun.

  • I am really sorry that I purchased this book and spend time reading it. My time and money would have been better spent elsewhere. I had enjoyed Mike Greenberg's "Why my Wife Thinks I'm an Idiot." I expected similar entertainment with this new book. I expected Greenberg to pull awesome insight from Mike Golic, just as he does each morning on Mike and Mike in the Morning. But that is not what I found.

    The writing style and layout are appropriate for a 4th grade library. Many elementary school sports fans would love the color pictures, color words (green for Greenberg, olive for Golic), and the simple concepts. Remove the references to Hooters wings and erectile dysfunction medication, and this book will be ready for young readers. It is set up perfecty for practice reading out loud. I can see it now, two boys could read aloud together to their teacher. It would be a lot easier to read that a lot of other 4th grade books.

    After submitting this review, I expect to be banned from listening to Mike and Mike for three days. That's okay, it is baseball season. I an willing to miss a few days of baseball talk to help others avoid my mistake.

  • enjoyable

  • First, let me tell you that I love Mike & Mike and eagerly awaited the publication of their book. I even preordered it from Amazon. I'm sorry I did.

    The format is confusing and difficult to read. It is more of a compilation of their conversations and rehashes old material. Nothing is new or exciting. I haven't even been able to read the whole book because it is so difficult to tolerate the haphazard format. The material is not interesting.

    Save your money and borrow it from someone (like me) who foolishly bought it sight unseen. Save your time and just watch or listen to Mike & Mike.

  • Bought this for my brother. He put it on his computer and loves it.
