"FAVRE" is terrific!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Favre (Hardcover)
I've been a Packer fan for over 40 years and have purchased lots of Packer memorabilia over time, but this has to be about the best thing I ever bought, especially for the price! This is a wonderful book, written by Brett and his Mom, with Chris Havel (a sports writer in Green Bay) that deals with his humble beginnings, all the way up to that awesome Raiders game after his Dad died. From the forward by Terry Bradshaw, appropriately entitled "The Best", to the last chapter by Peter King from Sports Illustrated, entitled "Legend", it's a book that everyone from youngsters to old-timers will enjoy. I thought I'd seen just about all of Brett's pictures they'd ever printed, but this book has a ton of game and family photographs I'd never seen before...some are double-page photos, and the quality is excellent. The icing on the cake is the DVD that comes with the book: "In Their Own Words: Brett Favre" from NFL Films. It is really great...funny and inspiring...it makes you proud to have watched Brett from when he was the new kid on the team to, now, the seasoned veteran. If you love the Packers and Brett Favre, you HAVE to get this book...either for yourself or your favorite Packer fan for Christmas!
