Beyond the Game book. Smith's writing style made me care about George O’Leary, the ill-famed former Notre Dame football coach who was fired for lying on his resume. The author's profile brings you up with O’Leary in his Irish Catholic home, then knocks you down with him when news of his embellished résumé first breaks. It lets you peek over O’Leary’s shoulder as he pens his own Re: Smith's "Lying in Wait" (his best, in my opinion).

Gary Smith has always set the standard for great sports writing. This book exemplifies his genius. Doesn't matter which sport he covers,he manages to make the story about the person not the sport. No one turns a word better than Smith. By the time you are finished with the narrative,you will know all there is to know about the subject. It reads like fiction but it's all real life. Wish the book had been longer because I can't get enough of his craft.
Gary Smith in my opinion is the greatest sports feature writer of all time. Beyond the Game is a collection of some of his best work therefore the book has no weaknesses. I carry it with me on assignments (I too am a sports writer) and continue to read it for nothing more than enjoyment and inspiration.
