Book Description:

Ray Didinger is one of the best sportswriters Philadelphia has ever read.  A sports journalist, first for the Bulletin and then for the Daily News, he never missed a deadline in over 25 years.  But as he admits, there have been close calls, much to his editors' chagrin.  He was widely known as "the World's Slowest Sportswriter."

Of the thousands of articles, columns, and profiles he has penned over the years, Didinger has selected his finest work to be included in this book.  One Last Read contains entire chapters for each of the professional Philadelphia teams -- the Phillies, the Flyers, the Sixers and of course, the Eagles.  But that is only half of the story.  Included here is his coverage of college sports and the Olympics as well as the ful text of the speech he delivered in Canton, Ohio when he presented his boyhood idol, Tommy McDonald, for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

There are also some strongly-worded opinion pieces -- about former Eagles owner (and legendary high-roller) Leonard Tose, the career of Woody Hayes, and much, much more.

Didinger's introduction -- engaging, warm, whitty, and insightful -- is among his finest writing.  For longtime readers, this essential collection of Didinger's work was worth the wait.

About the Author:

Ray Didinger has won four Emmy Awards as a writer and producer at NFL Films. Before that, he was a reporter covering the National Football League for The Philadelphia Bulletin, and later The Philadelphia Daily News. In 1995 he was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as the recipient of the Dick McCann Memorial Award for long and distinguished reporting of pro football. He is the author (with Robert S. Lyons) of The Eagles Encyclopedia, and a weekly commentator and panelist on Comcast SportsNet's Post Game Live show during the football season.
