9780028608419: Super Bowl: The Game of Their Lives

Peary enlisted the cooperation of key players from Super Bowl I through Super Bowl XXXI--including Bart Starr, Len Dawson, Roger Staubach, Franco Harris, Jim Plunkett, and Joe Montana--to create this collection of uniquely personal, highly entertaining stories. With an immediacy that brings readers inside the players' heads, into the locker room, and onto the field, "Super Bowl" is one of the most compelling sports books written in many years. 31 photos.

Review:

This book is intended, Danny Peary writes in his introduction, "to be a tribute to the hard-earned accomplishment of all the players who have reached the championship game." Super Bowl succeeds superbly by letting the players talk for themselves. An oral history of America's most ballyhooed sporting event, it mines the human element buried beneath the annual hype, as each player--from Bart Starr in the inaugural game to Desmond Howard, 31 contests later--recounts pro football's ultimate showdown from a personal perspective. Many of the voices--those of Roger Staubach, Franco Harris, Jim Plunkett, Joe Montana, and Troy Aikman, for example--are predictable. But it's the unexpected--Joe Jacoby, Matt Millen, Todd Christensen--who make this volume split the uprights.
