    I read an uncorrected proof, received from the publisher via NetGalley, but I expect that I will purchase this book and audiobook (read by the author!) to give as gifts. It truly is an inspirational story. It's not a perfect book and he clearly tries to shine a positive light on some things that seem impossibly challenging. It's a very human story and the message will remain with me for a long time. Ernie and his wife, Cheryl, have six kids, four of them were adopted and the family clearly has a ton of love to give. He talks about his job, but mostly about his family and his faith. He speaks about finding Christianity as an adult and his initial concerns about being judged negatively by having a Christian symbol on his car, or wearing a WWJD bracelet back when that was a thing, and eventually had to change his mentality after realizing that he was still focused on him, and what other people might think. His perspective is uplifting. For anyone with different beliefs who might have less interest when hearing that there is a Christian message in a book, I hope you'll give this one a chance. I think that EJ's family is an inspiration and his message is inclusive for anyone who has faced challenges. We should all take the time to appreciate the unscripted moments in life and stop to pick some blackberries.

    I love watching Ernie wrangle Shaq, Chuck and Kenny on Inside the NBA. When I saw he had written a book I couldn't wait to read it. Before reading this I knew nothing about Ernie Johnson other than he was a great sportscaster.

    I think I was expecting this book to have more insights and anecdotes about his life on the TNT set. This was not the case, but I can honestly say I didn't care.

    This book was a great heartfelt look into the life and mind of Ernie. His blackberry moments made me smile and laugh. The stories about his adoptions brought tears to my eyes.

    Ernie's passion for life is infectious. His dedication to family and friends is admirable. I now feel like I've known him for years without ever having met him. Hopefully that can happen one day.

    This is my favorite book of 2017 (so far). I have always loved Ernie Johnson as an announcer/analyst, but I now have huge respect for him as a man. This book is about being a Christian, son, husband and father. And about how to love a Godward life in each of those areas.

    I listened to the audio version via audible. It was read by Ernie and was excellent. It added a personal touch to hear him tell his stories. Parts of the book you could hear him getting choked up as he read.

    Every man should read this book. Seriously. It would make an excellent Fathers Day gift.

    This is easily the best autobiography I've ever read. I had long admired Ernie Johnson for his work at Turner Sports, and that he was a man of faith who had battled cancer and has a special-needs adopted son. This book fleshes out those bullet points with wrenching, self-deprecating transparency and honesty. He doesn't pretend that he's always had it all together or that his life has been one fairy tale after another. He's a lot like us, in other words, except for the public job. I finished Unsc

    This is easily the best autobiography I've ever read.

He doesn't pretend that he's always had it all together or that his life has been one fairy tale after another. He's a lot like us, in other words, except for the public job. I finished Unscripted wishing I was, at the very least, a member of Johnson's weekly Bible study group. A great glimpse at an incredible life - complete with an oldest daughter with excellent taste in Jimmy Buffett songs.

    I'm a big fan of the TV show Inside the NBA, so the fact that I really enjoyed this book should not be a big surprise. But even to the non-sports fan, Ernie Johnson's book is an engaging read about a simple, values-driven life from a grounded perspective. Johnson has good reason to be full of himself as a TV celebrity, but he writes humbly and graciously. He also writes his stories in a way that captivates - from simple childhood stories to stories of his time in the TV industry - they all kept

Johnson has good reason to be full of himself as a TV celebrity, but he writes humbly and graciously. He also writes his stories in a way that captivates - from simple childhood stories to stories of his time in the TV industry - they all kept me interested. The book weaves through his life rather seamlessly.

    Again, I probably was able to relate more to the stories he tells because I'm a sports fan and his work revolves primarily around sports. But I think it's still a great (and quick) read for anyone, covering relatable topics such as marriage, fatherhood, adoption, sickness, and faith.

    although I am not really a sports fan, this book is still an inspirational read! This is an engaging book about Earnie Johnson's simple, value-driven life from a grounded perspective. Johnson has a good reason to be full of himself, being a media personality, but he tell his tales humbly and graciously. This book touch on many relatable topics such as marriage, fatherhood, health, adoption, and faith.
