Sinopsis: Book by Dunnavant Keith

Críticas:

"This is one of the best sports history books you will read. It's the story of a remarkable man and a fascinating time. Bart Starr and the Green Bay Packers led the way in the 1960s when pro football became America's favorite sport. But this is much more than a football story. Bart Starr is a great man who has handled adversity, triumph, and tragedy with unique dignity. Bart's story has a lot to teach us about life. You will enjoy spending time with this well-crafted book and getting to know Bart Starr in a whole new way." --NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

"The Green Bay Packers - a formative fable of the the National Football League - would not have been possible without Bart Starr. But Keith Dunnavant has done more than restore the quarterback's place in the sport's history. This biography isn't merely definitive. It's an ode to stoicism, modesty and discipline - the virtues that made the Packers' dynasty." --Mark Kriegel, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Namath" and "Pistol"

"Keith Dunnavant's bold, stirring biography argues that Bart Starr is the NFL's greatest quarterback ever. Allowing no room for debate, Dunnavant shows that Starr was the indispensable man in the creation of the Green Bay Packers dynasty." -- Dave Kindred, author of "Morning Madness: Inside the Washington Post"

"Dunnavant has written an absolute masterpiece. This is both a compelling and riveting tale of one of the nicest men who ever played the game, and also one of the most important and influential. Even though I have known Bart more than 20 years, having interviewed him countless times, I learned something new on nearly every page. Hands down, the best sports book of the year. It may be the best sports book I have read in many years." --Paul Finebaum, Radio Talk Show Host

"In "America's Quarterback, " Keith Dunnavant perfectly captures the essence and the understated elegance of the icon that is Bart Starr. But Dunnavant gives us much, much more. Through painstaking research and intimate detail, which are the hallmark of his books, Dunnavant gives us the uniquely American story of how a man, through the sheer force of his will and his dedication to excellence, rises from modest circumstances to reach the top of his profession. We learn that Starr has lived his life the same way that he played football: with a quiet dignity that allows him to survive and prevail when faced with both the good and the bad. If you liked "When Pride Still Mattered," the great biography of Vince Lombardi by David Maraniss, you must read "America's Quarterback." Dunnvant has another winner!" --Tony Barnhart, CBS Sports

""America's Quarterback" is a well-researched, deeply personal account of a college and NFL icon. Luckily for us Keith Dunnavant chose Bart Starr as a subject. This is a fascinating read." --Dennis Dodd, CBSSports.com

"Keith Dunnavant is one of the most gifted writers and researchers in American book-writing. He brings depth and clarity to Bart Starr the same way he did with Bear Bryant in "Coach." I love this book and will proudly display it next to Coach Bryant.'' --Jim Dent, author of" Courage Beyond The Game
""Dunnavant does a great job of... revealing the truly impeccable character of Starr and that of his wife, Cherry.... This is an important book about one of the NFL's most important players "ever." He, the Packers and Lombardi all helped make the NFL what it is today. Starr is an amazing man who achieved the highest pinnacle in the sport, and yet, is still an exemplary role model, someone you would want your child to emulate. Dunnavant explains all that very well, and as such, it should be a book on every football fan's shelf, and a gift for every young football fan out there." -Bookgasm.com

Descripción GRIFFIN, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condición: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. A powerful biography of one of the greatest football players of all time, in the spirit of Namath and Johnny U No quarterback in the history of the NFL can match Bart Starr s record of achievement. In an unprecedented seven-season run from 1961-67, Starr led the Green Bay Packers to five NFL championships and the first two Super Bowl titles, while revolutionizing the position and laying the foundation for the quarterbacks of today. Yet until now this quiet man s remarkable career has often been obscured by the Lombardi mystique. Acclaimed author Keith Dunnavant brings Starr s dramatic journey to life in vivid detail, sketching the definitive portrait of an iconic figure who defined the quarterback position during the 1960s, when professional football stormed out of the shadows to capture the nation s imagination. A remarkable blend of personal memory and historical narrative, Bart Starr is a compelling biography of an American hero and the perfect companion to the classic When Pride Still Mattered. A definitive biography of the best man ever to take a snap from center. --Allen Barra, Dallas Morning News One of the best sports history books you will read. --NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell An ode to stoicism, modesty and discipline--the virtues that made the Packers dynasty. --Mark Kriegel, New York Times bestselling author of Namath Allowing no room for debate, Dunnavant shows that Starr was the indispensable man in the creation of the Green Bay Packers dynasty. -- Dave Kindred, author of Morning Madness An absolute masterpiece . Hands down, the best sports book of the year. --Paul Finebaum, Radio Talk Show Host. Nº de ref. del artículo: AAS9781250016249
