    2. Very nice book! I liked the quotes from different players commenting on the different games, definitely puts a lot into perspective from the people who were actually there rather than just some biographer's opinions. Extra perspective is given with complete scores and related pictures and posters and such. It's a really interesting history to read. Non-sports fans might very well find this interesting -- and a Patriots fan definitely will.

    3. I thought that it would be much more storytelling and less of the stats and rehashing every single play from the point of view of the players that were there during the game. Still, it did have interesting parts here and there, and. it's the Patriots. I'm a sucker for a Patriots book, doesn't matter how good or bad it is.

    4. Won in a giveaways it did not come for amost a year. It is a great book for Patriot fans and will give you more insighth into the history of the Patriots team.
