Straight Shooter: A Memoir of Second Chances and First Takes

America’s most popular sports media figure tells it like it is in this
surprisingly personal book, not only dishing out his signature, uninhibited
opinions but also revealing the challenges he overcame in childhood as well
as at ESPN, and who he really is when the cameras are off.Stephen A. Smith
has never been handed anything, nor was he an overnight success. Growing up
poor in Queens, the son of Caribbean immigrants and the youngest of six
children, he was a sports-obsessed kid who faced a number of struggles,
from undiagnosed dyslexia to getting enough cereal to fill his bowl. As a
basketball player at Winston-Salem State University, he got a glimmer of
his true calling when he wrote a newspaper column arguing for the
retirement of his own Hall of Fame coach, Clarence Gaines. Smith hustled
and rose up from a high school reporter at Daily News (New York) to a
general sports columnist at The Philadelphia Inquirer in the 1990s, before
getting his own show at ESPN in 2005. After he was unceremoniously fired
from the network in 2009, he became even more determined to fight for
success. He got himself rehired two years later and, with his razor-sharp
intelligence and fearless debate style, found his role on the show he was
destined to star in: First Take, the network’s flagship morning program. In
Straight Shooter, Smith writes about the greatest highs and deepest lows of
his life and career. He gives his thoughts on Skip Bayless, Ray Rice, Colin
Kaepernick, the New York Knicks, the Dallas Cowboys, and former President
Donald Trump. But he also pulls back the curtain and talks about life
beyond the set, sharing authentic stories about his negligent father, his
loving mother, being a father himself, his battle with life-threatening
COVID-19, and what he really thinks about politics and social issues. He
does it all with the same intelligence, humor, and charm that has made him
a household name. Provocative, moving, and eye-opening, this book is the
perfect gift for lovers of sports, television, and anyone who likes their
stories delivered straight to the heart. Read more

The #1 New York Times bestseller.From the legendary music producer, a
master at helping people connect with the wellsprings of their creativity,
comes a beautifully crafted book many years in the making that offers that
same deep wisdom to all of us.”A gorgeous and inspiring work of art on
creation, creativity, the work of the artist. It will gladden the hearts of
writers and artists everywhere, and get them working again with a new sense
of meaning and direction. A stunning accomplishment.” —Anne Lamott“I set
out to write a book about what to do to make a great work of art. Instead,
it revealed itself to be a book on how to be.” —Rick RubinMany famed music
producers are known for a particular sound that has its day. Rick Rubin is
known for something else: creating a space where artists of all different
genres and traditions can home in on who they really are and what they
really offer. He has made a practice of helping people transcend their
self-imposed expectations in order to reconnect with a state of innocence
from which the surprising becomes inevitable. Over the years, as he has
thought deeply about where creativity comes from and where it doesn’t, he
has learned that being an artist isn’t about your specific output, it’s
about your relationship to the world. Creativity has a place in everyone’s
life, and everyone can make that place larger. In fact, there are few more
important responsibilities.The Creative Act is a beautiful and generous
course of study that illuminates the path of the artist as a road we all
can follow. It distills the wisdom gleaned from a lifetime’s work into a
luminous reading experience that puts the power to create moments—and
lifetimes—of exhilaration and transcendence within closer reach for all of
us. Read more
