David Maraniss, "When Pride Still Mattered: A Life Of Vince Lombardi"
Publisher: Simon & Schuster | ISBN: 0684870185 | edition 2000 | PDF | 1537 pages | 3,75 mb
As coach of the Green Bay Packers from 1959 to 1967, Vince Lombardi turned perennial losers into a juggernaut, winning back-to-back NFL titles in 1961 and 1962, and Superbowls I and II in 1966 and 1967. Stern, severe, sentimental, and paternal, he stood revered, reviled, respected, and mocked–a touchstone for the '60s all in one person. Which adds up to the myth we've been left with. But who was the man? That's the question Pulitzer Prize-winner David Maraniss tackles.
