"I am positive that this book will give football fans everywhere a unique perspective on our program, but even more, a true picture of what makes Alabama football so special." ― from the Preface by Coach Nick Saban
"When I heard the title, 4th and Goal Every Day, my reaction was, 'that's perfect'. Phil Savage captures the very essence of what Nick Saban has built in Tuscaloosa, an incredibly complete football program." ―Bill Belichick, Five-Time Super Bowl Champion Coach
"No one can give more unique insight into how Saban has turned this from mantra to methodology than Phil Savage. Not only has Phil had a front-row ticket, he’s had a backstage pass to the dynasty. His relationship with Saban, his knowledge of the game and ability to communicate, are evident in his work on the Crimson Tide radio network and in his work with us at ESPN." ―from the Foreword by Rece Davis
"Because he has worked as both a coach and in personnel, [Savage] is equally adept at switching among tactics, strategy on the field, and player evaluation. He effectively conveys the complexities of football for an audience of football junkies and casual fans alike. Fans of college football generally and Alabama in particular will especially value the book." ―Kirkus Reviews
"Savage, an assistant coach with Saban when both were working for Bill Belichick on the 1991 Cleveland Browns, is uniquely able to dissect Saban’s approach. The pair have remained fast friends, and Savage is now the color analyst for Alabama games on the school’s radio network. The text offers revealing details about Saban’s practice routine, game preparation, sideline strategy, film study, and, of course, recruiting style.... College-football wonks won’t be able to resist this remarkable inside look at the game’s gold standard-program." ―Booklist
"A distinctly original approach to understanding not only Saban’s Crimson Tide team but Belichick’s coaching mind-set as well." ―Library Journal, a top 10 football title for summer/fall 2017
"Loaded with roster lists and stats that Alabama fans will devour..." ―Publishers Weekly
"Along with veteran sportswriter Ray Glier, Savage provides a unique perspective about the coach that serious Crimson Tide fans will enjoy." ―SEC Country
"Savage puts forth dozens of other anecdotes, insights and opinions that fans are sure to eat up regarding Alabama football and Saban's success in Tuscaloosa over the last decade." ―AL.com
"This book is one that every Crimson Tide fan will want to read..." ―The Guy Who Reviews Sports Books blog

(As a reference point I’m an avid and constant reader. I can usually plow through almost any book.)
I love college football and have been interested in what Nick Saban does to be excellent. Also, figured I could get some life lessons.
I was excited to receive this from Amazon.
The style of writing is weird. The telling doesn’t flow. The author interjects far too many personal stories of marginal value. He obviously loves Nick Saban and beats it into the ground. Much of what he says is his opinion with little reference as backup.
Hearing how Alabama recruits was interesting however the standards used are of little to no value for high schools or anybody but maybe the top 10 recruiting programs in college football.
Ok - Alabama works really hard, they stress fundamentals, they emphasize team, they prepare thoroughly. Hmm sounds like the stuff every program says.
The author states, “The game is not simply about signing the best players and winning with force of will. Players have to be picked, the groomed.”
As with much of what he says it is so obvious the book becomes pointless.
4th and long - I’m punting.
