A rollicking guided tour of one extraordinary summer, when some of the most pivotal and freakishly coincidental stories all collided and changed the way we think about modern sports The summer of 1984 was a watershed moment in the birth of modern sports when the nation watched Michael Jordan grow from college basketball player to professional athlete and star. That summer also saw ESPN's rise to media dominance as the country's premier sports network and the first modern, commercialized, profitable Olympics. Magic Johnson and Larry Bird's rivalry raged, Martina Navratilova and John McEnroe reigned in tennis, and Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon made pro wrestling a business, while Donald Trump pierced the national consciousness as a pro football team owner. It was an awakening in the sports world, a moment when sports began to morph into the market-savvy, sensationalized, moneyed, controversial, and wildly popular arena we know today. In the tradition of Bill Bryson's One Summer: America, 1927, L. Jon Wertheim captures these 90 seminal days against the backdrop of the nostalgia-soaked 1980s, to show that this was the year we collectively traded in our ratty Converses for a pair of sleek, heavily branded, ingeniously marketed Nikes. This was the year that sports went big-time.

Wilkes-Barre PA is a dying city. It is time to pick ourselves up by the bootstraps and begin our return to glory. In the middle of the last century, Wilkes-Barre’s population was approaching 90,000. Today it is 43,000. This did not happen overnight. Over the years, many of the city’s kind benefactors, such as the Kirby family, helped keep the city vibrant. Whenever it needed a boost, they were there to rejuvenate. Having had half the population move out of town, Wilkes-Barre no longer could count on a local family to be there at the right time with the right answer. Wilkes-Barre saw its population declining with the mines no longer sustaining the City. We noticed stores, even the best of the best shutting down or moving out from necessity. We all noticed that other businesses that once provided hundreds of jobs not being able to continue. Mark Twain once said that “The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” Wilkes-Barre officials and residents over the years have heard the death knell for the City and instead of contesting it fiercely, allowed it to happen. Like Twain, our demise has been greatly exaggerated. Those times are in the past. Wilkes-Barre can and must find its way out of the mire and return to glory. May good leadership help Wilkes-Barre find a way to reclaim its future. Those who grew up in this City, as well as those who love our Diamond City, will enjoy this book. Few books are a must-read but Brian Kelly’s Wilkes-Barre, PA: Return to Glory! will melt your heart as your author recounts some great stories from the past and points out how to stop the decline and move this city back to Glory. This book needs to be at the top of your reading list, especially for those who have lived or now live in Wilkes-Barre.
