Munson is a nationally known commentator, writer and ESPN editor. He returns for his annual visit to share his impressions of this new book. It is a brilliantly researched and well-written profile of one of Chicago's most beloved sports heroes, combined with a compelling account of the tragic 1969 season. Munson is sure to also mention other good sports books he has recently discovered.
