From Library Journal:

Wisconsin sportswriter McGinn is widely hailed as perhaps the best football beat man in the business. His analytic study of game replays and his intelligent interviewing enable him to write knowledgably about the inside game-the design of plays and the techniques and responsibilities of players. McGinn has interviewed players, assistant coaches, and head coaches from all 43 Super Bowls, 23 of which he covered in person, to determine the reasons that things went right or wrong on all the key plays in these championship games. He doesn't just retell the familiar backstories, but instead contributes a wealth of fresh material that heightens our understanding of why teams won or lost. In particular, his interviews with a variety of position coaches often pinpoint the fine line between success and failure in the ultimate pressurized environment of the Super Bowl. The book also features complete player rosters, comprehensive team and individual statistics, and a thorough listing of Super Bowl records. Entertaining Top 10 lists interspersed throughout the text add even more value to this best book ever about America's greatest game. VERDICT Essential for all football lovers.-John Maxymuk, Robeson Univ. Lib., Camden, NJ (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
