Throughout his career he has spent time with presidents and popes, world leaders and newsmakers, celebrities and sports heroes, but one person stands out from the rest in terms of his strength of character, modest grace, and simple decency: Russert's dad, Big Russ.

Big Russ and Me, written in Russert's easygoing, straight-talking style, offers an irresistible collection of personal memories. Russert recalls the dedicated teachers who stimulated his imagination and intellect, sparking a lifelong passion for politics and journalism, and inspired a career that took him from editor of his elementary school newspaper to moderator of Meet the Press.

It has been an eventful and deeply satisfying journey, but no matter where his career has taken him, Russert's fundamental values still spring from that small house on Woodside Avenue and the special bond he shares with his father, a bond he enjoys now with his own son. Tim Russert celebrates the indelible connection between fathers and sons, and the timeless dreams they share, even in out ever changing world. Listenres everywhere will laugh, cry, and identify with the lessons of life taught by the indomitable Big Russ.
