Joe tells the story of his football life. His alcohol problem he mentions but he does not discuss in detail, it's not the point of the book. This book was Joe Namath the football player... from childhood to the end of his career.
One salient part was his description of his injuries. I am surprised this man can walk right now, and he describes how he played through injuries that players will not play through today (e.g. torn ACL).
Photos are beautiful and DVD is great. I just wish the book were a little longer, I did not want to stop reading it. A great gift for any football player or fan.
I found the first half of the book to be the best as after that it seemed to descend into a discussion of Namath's business pursuits (restaurant chain, movies, advertising).
In a perfect world, I would have liked less publicity photos and more pictures of his football playing and more indepth on his playing.
This is not a biography of the man, but more of a coffeetable look at him, which is not to say that it is bad.
An enjoyable book.

Great book - if you're a Namath/Jet fan, or just enjoy reading sports bio's - this book is a must-have. This book has both great photos and makes for an interesting read.Published on January 6, 2009 by Kiki Karoon
