Those Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN by James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales

Those Guys Have All the Fun, based on interviews with over 550 people, is not just the history of ESPN, but the personalities, rivalries, and the sexist and party atmosphere that has prevailed at times at the 24-hour all sports network. It was founded in 1979 by Bill Rasmussen, who borrowed $9000 to launch a network that is now one of the most profitable. Today, $4 from every cable bill goes to ESPN, whether watched or not. James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales's book has received mostly positive reviews with Entertainment Weekly saying, "But for anyone who does give a rat's ass about Chris Berman, Dan Patrick, Tony Kornheiser, et al., it provides an impressive account of the network's embarrassments and victories."
