"If you don’t like to laugh and you don’t like history OR St. Louis, then this is not the book for you. If you do then walk straight to the counter and buy it. I loved it and you will too.” –Joe Buck, Emmy Award-winning Fox Sports Announcer and 2020 recipient of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Pete Rozelle Award
“I couldn’t stop reading Charlie Brennan’s Only In St. Louis. It’s a tell-all written in fast jabs, covering everything — and I mean everything — odd, funny, outrageous, scandalous, and interesting about St. Louis from the 1800s onward. The Mississippi ran backwards! JFK took a bag full of cash in a restroom. Queen Marie of Romania’s custom mattress was stuffffed so full of feathers it dumped her onto her St Louis hotel floor multiple times. She left to sleep in a train instead. ‘Only In St. Louis’ indeed.” –Ridley Pearson, bestselling co-author of Peter and the Starcatchers, author of 60 novels, and enshrined on the St. Louis Walk of Fame
