Sports fans see Joe Buck everywhere: broadcasting one of the biggest games in the NFL every week, calling the World Series every year, announcing the Super Bowl every three years. They know his father, Jack Buck, is a broadcasting legend and that he was beloved in his adopted hometown of St. Louis.



  • I absolutely loved this book and I'm so stoked that Joe narrated it. He does a fantastic job of giving us insight into his life without getting all high and mighty. Seriously, I can't recommend this enough.
  • I just gotta say, man, thank you so much!!! Joe, you really put it all out there, and not a lot of folks would have the guts to do that!!! You had me laughing, crying, grinning from ear to ear, and just feeling all the feels. Seriously, thank you!
  • This book is a breath of fresh air, completely different from the last one I read, "Will." While reading about Will Smith's constant success, it's refreshing to dive into sportscaster Joe Buck's memoir that is both entertaining and informative. Buck's ability to poke fun at himself and his humility throughout the book is truly admirable. The memoir revolves around his life, career, and his special bond with his father, the legendary sportscaster Jack Buck. I couldn't help but feel like I was reading two books at times, which was awesome because Jack Buck was a true legend whose broadcasts I grew up listening to in the 70s and 80s. One of the aspects I enjoyed the most about this book is Buck's ability to laugh at himself and acknowledge the validity of some of his critics' points. He not only shares his experiences bonding with his father, but also emphasizes the significance of family and the privilege he feels to be a part of such a worthy profession. This is perfectly reflected in the title of the book, "Lucky Bastard." With a combination of lighthearted humor and poignant moments, Buck candidly shares the ups and downs of his own life. He doesn't shy away from discussing the times he almost ruined his career and shares some of his most embarrassing stories. Honestly, he is absolutely hilarious, and there were moments where I couldn't help but burst into laughter. In "Lucky Bastard," Joe Buck takes readers behind the scenes into the broadcast booth and invites us into his childhood home. This book is a delightful blend of humor and occasional moments of heartbreak. Any sports fan would thoroughly enjoy it, and I cannot recommend this amazing book enough. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📚
