Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Brett Favre: A Packer Fan's Tribute:

"This book is perfect for anyone who wants to see what makes this strong-armed QB from Mississippi one of the game's greats." --Sarah Braunstein, Sports Illustrated for Kids

"[Tom Kertscher's book] is as on the money as one of Favre's legendary, finger-breaking spirals." --Adam Mertz, Madison (WI) Capital Times

"Brett Favre is the fiercest quarterback ever to strap on pads. Tom Kertscher captures his indomitable spirit and honors his stellar achievements as only a lifelong Packer fan can." --Dwayne Bray, ESPN

"This is a book for the die-hard Packer fan. It is a great commemorative book about a certain Hall of Famer." --John L. Hoh Jr., BookIdeas.com

"Tom Kertscher has written a marvelous book. It takes a great story and a great storyteller to make a book remarkable, and this delivers both." --Adam Wojnarowski, Yahoo! sports columnist and two-time Associated Press sports editors national sports columnist of the year

"Football's greatest player deserves a tribute as good as this one, filled with insights and anecdotes. By the end, you'll be cheering Tom Kertscher's writing along with Brett Favre's heroics." --Greg J. Borowski, author, First and Long: A Black School, a White School, and Their Season of Dreams

"[Kertscher and Biever] capture the essence of what makes Favre a great player, team leader, and humanitarian." --Green Bay Press-Gazette

About the Author

More About the Author

Tom Kertscher stumbled into a writing career after taking a journalism class in high school simply because it fit into his schedule. One of his first assignments ended up filling the front page of the school paper and, even though his name was misspelled in the byline, he was hooked. Tom has worked as a local news reporter for more than 25 years and currently is one of the PolitiFact Wisconsin reporters at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He previously worked for newspapers in Tulsa, Okla., Aurora, Ill., and Fresno, Calif. A journalism graduate of the University of Wisconsin (B.A.) and Ohio State University (M.A. on a Kiplinger Fellowship), Tom has authored books on two Wisconsin sports icons. His "Cracked Sidewalks and French Pastry: The Wit and Wisdom of Al McGuire" (University of Wisconsin Press) collected quotations from the late Marquette University basketball coach. "Brett Favre: A Packer Fan's Tribute" (Turner Publishing) was published, thankfully, before the drama of the quarterback's retiring and unretiring. Published digitally are two more of Tom's books -- "Walk-ons," which profiles college and pro athletes who were overlooked or underrated but beat the odds to succeed in football, baseball or basketball; and "Last Words," a collection of touching vignettes about the last words of ordinary people during their final moments of life. Tom lives with his daughter, Hailey, in Milwaukee.

A good book for all Green Bay Packers fans, especially fans of Favre and those still mourning his retirement. Great pics and great overview of his career, which brings back many fond memories of #4.

There will never be another like him is the most appropriate way to describe Brett Favre. His jest for the game of football was unmatched and his ability to turn bad plays into good ones and occasionally turn good plays into bad ones always kept you interested in the game. No one who watched the game between the Packers and the Raiders on Monday December 22, 2003 will ever forget it. Less than 24 hours before the game started, Favre was informed that his father had suffered a massive heart attack and died. Even though he was given the opportunity to sit the game out, Favre played and turned in an incredible performance. His play was so astounding that even the Raider fans in the stands began cheering him. Like some of the people who contributed to this book, I watched the game with tears in my eyes.
While he did engage in occasional trash talk with his opponents, it was always clear that they had the highest respect for him. He would go jaw to jaw with an opponent and then they would slap each other on the helmet and go back to their respective huddles.
All of this inspiration and his impact on the game are captured in this largely photo tribute to Brett Favre's years as a Packer. His uncanny ability to play and win is unmatched by nothing other than his base humility as a person. He never allowed himself to be floated above the others, always willing to meet with fans and treat them as an important asset rather than an unpleasant duty. In the elitist world of professional sports stars worth millions of dollars, he exuded the simple life of the Mississippi country boy that he remained, even while in the national limelight. This is a book that is a must read for all fans of the Packers, NFL football and nice guys who finish first.

Does it take talent to write a book like this?

It's just a collection of quotes by Brett Favre and some pretty pictures.

I guess this is the state of journalism today: all fluff and no story.

Might as well credit the author as Brett Favre.
