Like another reviewer noted, I expected more Madden <> Summerall interaction based on the title. Instead, the book is a collection of short (two - three pages at the most each) anecdotes about the most colorful old time (and some newer) greats of the gridiron. The seasoned NFL history buff will view it as just another collection of reminders of the greats (Baugh, Unitas, Nitzchke, Papa Bear, etc.) with some possibly lesser known anecdotes of life on and around the gridiron. There was some salty language peppered amongst some of the early anecdotes that I didn't expect, and some may find it gratuitous, unnecessary color. It's a good, but short read. The DVD included with the book is a bonus. For the more serious inquirer about what goes on on the field, I'd recommend "In The Trenches." Recommended as a gift for any NFL fan that doesn't already have it, but don't spend more than 7$ on a used copy, and make sure it includes the DVD.

Thanks for a very good book. A really good read. Was in great shape, as you said. Prompt service was appreciated.

I expected this book to be a collection of stories shared betwen Madden and Summerall. Instead, the author presents a series of short stories about many of the great NFL players and coaches. Unfortunately these stories have nothing to do with Madden or Summerall. I found the title of the book and the cover photo very misleading. In addition, my copy of the book, and I suspect others, does not include a foreword by Pat Summerall, even though this foreword is advertised on both the front and back covers of the book.

There is some interesting reading here, but I would not have purchased the book if I had had the chance to pick it up and look through it first.

I first heard Mr. Shepatin do a reading from his book at a speaker series in Brooklyn, and his storytelling kicked the butts of the two other sports writers there. I bought a copy of the book on the strength of that reading, and knowing his writing from Esquire and other places.

It's a really good, thoughtful, and funny read that brings out the characters and conflicts of the NFL through Shepatin's stories.

My girlfriend borrowed the book and hasn't given it back, and she's given a copy to one of her girlfriends who wanted to learn more about the game - she said that it was a book that could appeal equally as well to knowledgeable fans as it could to those who are newer to the game.

Looking forward to a sequel ...

Fun, breezy read. Lots of great stories you actually haven't heard before. And new interviews with Frank Gifford and Jerry Rice. The book reads like insiders sitting around a bar swapping stories, having a great time. Great for any NFL fan.

Very interesting stories from many NFL greats are in the book. It is a quick read that is full of cool info. The author interviewed an impressive number of players, former players, coaches and others and packed them into this great book.
