He’s truly amazing. It’s true that most people don’t want to hear the truth about themselves, but Harv gets in your face, uses a few choice words to get your attention, and he’s got you.
Al Leiter, former all-star pitcher

Harv is absolutely unique. He’s for real—a straight shooter. He gives it to you right on the line, whether you like it or not. Not many people can—or will—do that.
Walt Weiss, former all-star shortstop and current manager of the Colorado Rockies
