"I loved the way you've written the book and the way it is all broken down. A great read and info from those days and it sure was interesting to see what all everyone had to say. I would love to go through that era again with those same fellas. Your book really brought back some great and wonderful memories." —Chuck Ramsey, Former New York Jets Punter
"If you’re one of those fans who stepped on the Jets bandwagon for the Rex Ryan-Mark Sanchez years, here’s the story of an earlier, wild and woolly era -- one often overlooked in favor of the Joe Namath Super Bowl team." —Billy Heller, New York Post ("Required Reading" selection)
"'Sack Exchange' provides some startling insights into one of the most storied teams of all time. As usual, Prato digs deep for his facts and leaves no stone unturned in fashioning a story that will beguile and amaze readers from the get-go." —Steven Rosen, curledup.com
"Greg paints a picture where you feel like you're right in the locker room with these guys...or hanging out with them back in the day in the NYC clubs during the Koch era. There is not a single true Jets fan on the planet that shouldn't own this book." --Keith Roth, The Electric Ballroom Radio Show
"Sack Exchange will appeal to readers in the New York–New Jersey area and all Jets fans." —Library Journal (August 15, 2011)
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Prato's interviews reveal how the four members of the NY Sack Exchange became NFL celebrities as defensive linemen, at a time when quarterbacks and running backs tended to get all of the glory in the sports media. By 1981, the members of the Sack Exchange had become household names and helped make the New York Jets a contender for the Super Bowl.
Prato should also be applauded for revealing one key tidbit about how the worlds of rock music and pro football came together in the mid-80s. Mark Gastineau and Edward Van Halen became good friends during this time, and Van Halen even stood on the sidelines during games to watch his friend play.
So it's more than just a usual writer "opinion" book, it's authentic.
