A Sneak Peek of QB with Steve Young
Steve and Joe Montana
Despite the quarterback controversy, I always had a good relationship with Joe. Our lockers were next to each other for six years.

“All football fans know what a tremendously talented and successful quarterback Steve Young was in his NFL career. But what they don’t know about are the challenges and personal obstacles Steve had to overcome to make his dreams come true. This is a most exciting and compelling story.” —Roger Staubach
“There has never been a QB like Steve Young, and there has never been a football memoir quite like QB: A Life. Young’s battles with anxiety make you forget you are reading about a Hall of Famer, and make you root for him at every turn. This is a revealing, honest, compelling book that any fan will enjoy.” —Michael Rosenberg, senior writer, Sports Illustrated
“Steve was not just another Hall of Fame QB—he was extraordinary in every facet of life. His passion, preparation, and attention to detail is so vivid you feel as though this QB has put you right in the middle of a huddle of life. I’ve never read a football book with more honesty and integrity—it’s typical Steve. What a quarterback! What a man!” —Jim Nantz, CBS Sports
“Steve Young’s scrambling, pinpoint passing, and perseverance helped make him an NFL Hall of Fame quarterback. He wowed us every Sunday. Until reading QB, though, I had no idea about the personal mountains he had to climb to make his dreams come true. This is a most memorable story for all fans.” —Chris Berman, ESPN

Steve Young had fame, fortune, good looks, and a successful football career. But life was not that easy for him. In this book he had the courage to tell his story with complete honestly and frankness especially regarding his struggles with anxiety and his difficulty finding the right person to marry. Because of that, we admire him all the more for his triumphs and accomplishments.
The message of this book is a hopeful one. We don’t have to be perfect or have a perfect life to follow our dreams. In fact, it is often in the struggle that true greatness is achieved.

Si te gusta el futbol americano y la vida de Steve Young, este libro es una excelente opcion.
Yo soy fan de los 49ers, y disfrutaba de los juegos durante varias temporadas con Joe Montana y Steve Young.
Es sorprendente todos los acontecimientos y eventos que ocurren con lujo de detalle que narra el autor,
nunca me hubiera imaginado que Steve Young hubiera pasado por todas estas situaciones.
Te hace cambiar tu manera de pensar y como era su vida. Reflexionas sobre los retos.
Despues de leer el libro, uno se queda con la sensacion de apreciar mucho mas los logros y entender a la gran persona,
de Steve Young, tanto como jugador, como Padre, compañero e hijo.
