Linda Cohn Head BookIn “Cohn-Head,” one of America’s most successful female anchors lays bare her hard-fought rise to the top of the sportscasting boys’ club and her life inside the ESPN empire, talks candidly about sports personalities she has met, and reveals her personal top ten lists plus much, much more. After tracing her upbringing in a dysfunctional family, Linda Cohn tells how she became a diehard sports fan and a goalie on her high school (boy’s) hockey team–setting the stage for college hockey stardom, when she was affectionately known as “Cohn-Head” by her teammates. From here she moves on to her first break in sportscasting. Along the way she describes her close encounters with the likes of Michael Jordan, Matthew McConaughey, and Jay Z. Written with verve, “Cohn-Head” is a riveting read–a must for sports fans male and female alike, as well as anyone who seeks insight into how one woman made a man’s world her own.

Cohnhead is a must read for any sports fan or any female ready to take on the world!
I found myself laughing hysterical at vivid descriptions of a childhood-Cohn has an amazing talent for delivering a well woven story with a lot wit and humor!

Cohn’s contagious passion for sports literally leaps off each page. It’s no wonder why Cohn is THE most respected sports anchor-male or female!

Format: Hardcover

What a great read! I recommend this book for non-sports fans too. This book is written in a style that is very enjoyable and Linda’s personality shines through. It was interesting to read how she got to where she is today. She shares insight and guidance, and clearly wants to help others achieve their goals as well.

 

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quick Read

By Scott

Really enjoyed the book and can be read in a sitting. It gave me a great insight into one of the pioneers of women is sports broadcasting. Very revealing and honest. I truly enjoyed the stories – they were so vivid, I almost felt as if I were a part of them.

 

4.0 out of 5 stars Linda Cohn, I want to read more!

By Andrew Kuligowski 

I read a lot of those hockey “auto”-biographies allegedly written by a player, coach, or other such individual – who actually sat down with some sportswriter, provided some background, and then let him or her do the actual writing. I enjoy the material, even though I know that the personality’s words were interpreted by some professional journalist or other writer.

Cohn-Head is just like that – sort of. But different. Linda Cohn’s claim to fame isn’t her hockey playing days, even though she did spend time in high school and college between the pipes for the school’s team. It’s that she’s a journalist. SO … the book goes off in different directions, and the author really IS the author, without someone else trying to organize her thoughts and put them in sentences that sound like the book’s subject actually wrote them.

Linda Cohn shows herself to be a lot more than “just” the pretty face on SportsCenter. As stated earlier, her love of hockey comes honestly with a college hockey background. Her carerr shows the benefit of hard work … and breaks … and not giving up because an earned opportunity doesn’t come OR a challenge arises OR …

Before I read this book, I thought that Linda Cohn would probably be a very interesting person to have a lengthy conversation with – after reading this book, I know she would be

Perhaps the only weakness in the book is the weak ending … but even there, it shows that her life and career is still moving forward, and picking a certain period of time to write your memoirs does not mean that the moment is going to end on a momentous event that wraps everything up!

It’s a quick read. Read it.

P.S. Several of the reviews I’ve read mention Linda’s self-admitted self-absorbtion. Yes, the book centers around her – but it’s her frickin’ autobiography, what did you expect / want it to be about??
