Publisher's Summary

"There are really two games, the one you see and the one you don't. The way I see it, the best way to use access to both worlds is to illuminate and reveal, not idolize and adore. It's better to be wrong than to be played for a fool." – Colin Cowherd

In this age of billion dollar athletic marketing campaigns, “feel good” philosophy with no connection to reality, and a Sports Media echo chamber that’s all too eager swallow whatever idiotic notion happens to be in vogue at the moment, it’s tough to find people who aren’t afraid to say what they’re really thinking.

But that’s where Colin Cowherd comes in. As his millions of fans on ESPN Radio and ESPNU already know, Colin is the rare sports analyst who’s brave (or crazy) enough to speak his mind—even if it pisses some people off. Of course, it helps that a lot of what Colin has to say is simply hilarious. Lots of writers can tell you about Boston’s storied sports history. But how many can tell you why the city of Boston is America’s five year old? Lots of writers will brag about the stuff they got right, but how many will happily list all the calls they got completely and utterly wrong? Whether he’s pointing out the stupidity of conspiracy theories, explaining why media bias isn’t nearly as big a deal as many assume, or calling out those who prize short term wins over sustainability, Colin is smart, thought-provoking, and laugh-out-loud funny. Some of the questions he’s not afraid to ask in You Herd Me! include:

  • Is Tiger Woods really a sex addict—or does he just have good PR?
  • Is “work-life balance” really the ideal we should all strive for—or is that just a way for people feel better about mediocrity?
  • Is talent really all it’s cracked up to be—or can too much talent actually be counterproductive?
  • Is the X games really a sport—or would we all be better off if we admitted it’s something else entirely?
  • Is Hell really a supernatural place of fire and brimstone—or is it actually just another word for living in Tampa?

Unapologetically entertaining and packed with behind-the-scenes insights you won’t get anywhere else, You Herd Me! is unlike any other sports book ever written.

Any additional comments?

I listen to Colin Cowherd's podcast religiously and have gained a ton of insight on life and sports from his perspective. I think he is the most thought provoking personality on radio and made me reanalyze many aspects of my personal and business life. The book is essentially a condensed version of all the themes of his radio show so I would recommend it to anyone who is interesting in American sports or bettering themselves.

Great content, great narration, but a tad outdated

I love Cowherd on FS1 and miss his radio show. I truly enjoy his show the most when he gets away from sports and talks about life. I appreciate his opinions on sports but Colin has great insights on other topics. His random musings are thoughtful and funny. I hope he writes more books. Also, his narration is second to none.

Went from hating Colin to understanding him.

He's an edgy dude who sometimes appears to go above and beyond to be contrarian. But after reading the why's behind his what's and the journey he's been on. I commend his takes and the courage of his convictions. It's an entertaining insight to where it all began for Colin in sports interest and journalism along with some interesting characters and good luck along his rise to current fame. There are tons and tons of fantastic life tips and advice that he's gathered over the years from other people.

Fascinating look into sports and psychology

If you enjoy Colin Cowherd’s show you’ll enjoy his first book You herd Me! Colin’s unique look into sports and human psychology makes for a fascinating read or in my case listen. Pick it up and it may make you look at sports or even life a little different.

Rich mans podcast

If you have listened to Colin’s podcast before than listening to this book you’re not hearing anything new. If you are interested and want to see what Colin is all about and hear his opinions than this is the book for you.

Fan Of The Herd

Fan of the Herd, so naturally enjoyed the book. If you’re used to listening to his radio show/podcast, you’ll enjoy this read as he also performs it.
