Read Unscripted: The Unpredictable Moments That Make Life Extraordinary Online Free - Ernie Johnson Jr. has been in the game a long time. With one of the most recognized voices in sports broadcasting, he is a tireless perfectionist when it comes to preparing and delivering his commentary. Yet he knows that some of sports' greatest triumphs--and life's greatest rewards--come from those unscripted moments you never anticipated.
In this heartfelt, gripping autobiography, the three-time Sports Emmy Award-winner and popular host of TNT's Inside the NBA provides a remarkably candid look at his life both on and off the screen. From his relationship with his sportscaster father to his own rise to the top of sports broadcasting, from battling cancer to raising six children with his wife, Cheryl, including a special needs child adopted from Romania, Ernie has taken the important lessons he learned from his father and passed them on to his own children. This is the untold story, the one Ernie has lived after the lights are turned off and the cameras stop rolling. Sports fans, cancer survivors, fathers and sons, adoptive parents, those whose lives have been touched by a person with special needs, anyone who loves stories about handling life's surprises with grace--Unscripted is for all of these.

If you are familiar with Ernie Johnson, Jr., then you'll understand what I mean when I say that reading Unscripted is as delightful and genuine as watching him on TV. If you are not familiar with EJ, this book would be a great way to get acquainted. It's an inspirational memoir that anyone can ap...

I love reading autobiographies and this is one that I came across back in April when I heard EJ speak at a conference in Nashville.
I told my wife that I found the perfect book for the beach. Probably the quickest I've ever read a book. And it was one that I found myself laughing a bit aloud, she...

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 a...

"Unscripted," as penned by Ernie Johnson, certainly gives the reader much to ponder and consider. His biography is filled with vignettes from his childhood days up to present day, in his role as Grandpa. I love the "blackberries" story from his early days as a Little League baseballer and through...

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 him...

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...

This book was amazing. The only reason I picked up this book is because I say EJ give the invocation before a major football game in Atlanta. I was moved. I have known about EJ most of my life and watched his father cover the Braves games when I was a kid. I am so glad I was at that football game...

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 v...
