Format: Hardcover
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Mr. Levy's use of humor while developing the characters made the book a great read. I loved learning how and why trades and drafts are decided upon during the annual NFL draft. The use of names, in various forms, of the author's former players in Buffalo made the book even more fun to read as there was no doubt where the names came from. Interwoven in the story was a warm portrayal of the love shared by the protagonist and his wife. Sometimes I found myself laughing out loud as I tried to figure out how the book would end.

Format: Hardcover
"Between the Lies" is a contemporary Dickensian-like tale of two teams on their determined path to the Super Bowl filled with surrounding surprising stories of "how to get there." More than that, you will find artistically weaved into this novel interesting characters, love stories, jealousies, and events that will keep you reading this winter either in front of the fire or on the beach. Knowledge of football is not a prerequisite for enjoyment of this fascinating work of fiction by a Hall of Fame coach who knows all the ins and outs - backwards and forwards - about the four downs.

Between the Lies offers a unique, non-predicable approach to the game of football, and I was fascinated by the non-traditional scope of the drama behind closed doors; not just the play-by-play on the gridiron. The characters were well developed and multi-dimensional, and I couldn't help but identify with the need for social justice and for those characters that demonstrated a strong moral compass to be victorious. Coach Levy demonstrated a strong sense of personal ethics, without being sanctimonious, which provided the reader with a special appreciation for the game. One of the most enjoyable components was his ability to weave a wonderful sense of humor throughout the story with particular care given to the characters' names. Yet, ultimately, Coach Levy's passion and love of the game was the shining glory.

Format: Hardcover
Former head coach Marv Levy has written an entertaining account of the first few seasons of an NFL expansion team . The Harvard educated Levy focuses on management, coaches, and ownership, as well as the journalists who cover the team.

I had expected more insights into the game itself but didn't feel that I got that. Instead, the book provided a fast paced, easy and somewhat predictable read that kept my attention. With all due respect to Levy, who is intelligent, articulate, and appears to be a great guy on top of that, this might be characterized by some as being at the Young Adult level. Nevertheless, it won't take long to read and should be of interest to most NFL fans.
