Customer Review

on November 20, 2013
This is that rarest of sports book, which elevates its subject matter to much more than just a book about sports. Dawidoff worked for Sports Illustrated, at one point, but has since gone on to write about everything from from spies, to country music, to schizophrenia for publications like the New Yorker. In this book, he brings the players and the coaches on the Jets to life, making us care about -- not just whether they win or lose -- but about their personal lives, disappointments, and aspirations. He creates an intimacy with his subjects that seem so unlikely, if not impossible, in this era when PR men always seem to handle the press and hold them at bay. This book is bound to be one the greatest sports books of all time.
