Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a television viewership of over 100 million people and hundreds of millions of dollars spent each year on tickets, concessions, and merchandise alone, the Super Bowl is the greatest game on Earth. Offering in-depth analysis, detailed statistics, play-by-play recaps, and post-game insights for every Super Bowl ever played, The Ultimate Super Bowl Book is the most definitive reference to this iconic sporting event, exploring all the high and lows from more than four decades of gridiron drama, with stories and quotes from the men who made history on football’s biggest stage.
In addition to a comprehensive examination of each Super Bowl played since 1967, the book presents features on the greatest individual performances in Super Bowl history—from Joe Namath to Joe Montana, Tom Brady to Aaron Rodgers, Marcus Allen to Emmitt Smith, Jack Lambert to James Harrison—and the best and worst decisions by some legendary coaches, including Vince Lombardi, Chuck Noll, Bill Parcells, Bill Belichick, Mike McCarthy, and more. Author Bob McGinn weighs in on the biggest Super Bowl shockers, the worst blunders, and the most entertaining characters. Quotes from players and coaches take you to the sidelines and into the huddle with the greatest teams in Super Bowl History, including the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, and more.
No sporting event can compete with the Super Bowl—and no book can compete with this one as the ultimate reference to the ultimate game!

Synopsis:

Bob McGinn (Green Bay, WI) has covered more than 25 Super Bowls as a sportswriter for the Green Bay Press-Gazette and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. In 2011, he was honored with the Dick McCann Memorial Award for his long and distinguished reporting on pro football. The award, given to one writer each year, places McGinn in the writer’s wing of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. McGinn has also won numerous awards from the Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE) and the Pro Football Writers of America, and he is a five-time Wisconsin State sportswriter of the year. A native of Escanaba and a graduate of the University of Michigan, he lives in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
 
Michael MacCambridge (St.Louis, MO) is one of the nation’s foremost authorities on pro and college football. His book America’s Game: The Epic Story of How Pro Football Captured a Nation was named by The Washington Post as one of the most distinguished works of nonfiction in 2004, and it earned the Nelson Ross Award from the Professional Football Researchers Association for outstanding achievement in pro football research and history.
