Praise for The Man I Never Met
"Schefter's book is affecting not only for the story it tells of how the author learned to honor his wife's husband as 'the fifth member of [his] family,' but also for how it shows a man growing into a mature understanding of the true meaning of love and sacrifice. An unexpectedly moving memoir." Kirkus Reviews
A brave, inspiring story of two men of different fates, never meeting, yet proving the connectivity of life through the overwhelming power of love. A fresh and triumphant take on the aftermath of 9/11. -Mitch Albom, author of the New York Times bestseller, Tuesdays with Morrie
About the Book
A powerful true story of loss and hope by one of the biggest names in sports media.
On September 11, 2001, Joe Maio went to work in the north tower of the World Trade Center. He never returned, leaving behind a wife, Sharri, and 15-month old son, Devon. Five years later, Sharri remarried, and Devon welcomed a new dad into his life.
For thousands, the whole country really, 9/11 is a day of grief. For Adam and Sharri Maio Schefter and their family its not just a day of grief, but also hope. This is a story of 9/11, but its also the story of 9/12 and all the days after. Life moved on. Pieces were picked up. New dreams were dreamed. The Schefters are the embodiment of that.
This book will give voice to all those who have chosen to keep living. Its gratifying and beautiful. But also messy and hard. Like most families. Except that one day every year history comes roaring back. How do you embrace that? How do you honor that?
The Man I Never Met is also a peek at Adam Schefter, the man behind the headlines and injury reports; a real person who has a real family. His book will follow in the path of recent ESPN books by Tom Rinaldi and the late Stuart Scott books that have transcended sport to examine the raw emotion of life.
