Nick Taylor has authored or collaborated on eight non-fiction books, including the New York Times bestseller John Glenn: A Memoir, with astronaut and former U.S. Senator John Glenn, and the highly praised A Necessary End, a memoir of Taylor's parents' final years. The author lives in New York City.From Library Journal:
Major bass fishing tournaments offer grand prizes worth $100,000 or more. Such opportunities foster plenty of hopes and dreams, because the big winners become celebrities of sorts who may go on to endorse angling products or host TV shows. Taylor chronicles the development of bass fishing as a professional sport and breathes life into it with character sketches of the dominant players and promoters. Indeed, it is his colorful profiles and ability to capture the intensity of several high-stakes contests that make this book so entertaining. Recommended for public libraries in regions where these tournaments are popular. Will Hepfer, SUNY at Buffalo Libs.
