Book Overview

Boasting stunning, never before seen photographs and an NFL Network DVD, NAMATH is an autobiography befitting its author: brash, brazen and winning. A rebellious and gutsy gunslinger out of Western Pennsylvania's Beaver Valley, Joe Namath redefined the meaning of underdog. After winning a NCAA National Championship for Paul "Bear" Bryant's Alabama Crimson Tide, he embarked on a professional football career unlike any before or since. Known on and...

Namath

Great book - if you're a Namath/Jet fan, or just enjoy reading sports bio's - this book is a must-have. This book has both great photos and makes for an interesting read.

Score This As a Touchdown!

Just like the author, this book is a winner! This makes a great gift for the book lovers and sports fans in your life. Readable and written as if a friend is telling you the stories, warm and casual without any airs. Joe Namath's appeal is timeless, his talent is revered by athletes and non-athletes, and his honesty is heartwarming. He is a good storyteller and his experiences are worth telling. Truly, an enjoyable read for anyone. This is a story of courage, pain, perseverance and commitment-to the game, to his family, and to himself. Reading about his injuries gives insight into the physical punishment and the steel discipline needed to play the game of football AND the game of life. The pictures are wonderful, too. Even the front and back inside covers of the book have pictures. It's like getting a photo album, a great story, and a bonus DVD, all in one book. Touchdown!!

Great football book

I recommend this book to anyone, especially football fans and players. It is addicting - I received it as a gift on a Friday evening, read for maybe 2 hours, went out, then woke up the next morning and finished before 2pm. I just could not put it down. Joe tells the story of his football life. His alcohol problem he mentions but he does not discuss in detail, it's not the point of the book. This book was Joe Namath the football player... from childhood to the end of his career. One salient part was his description of his injuries. I am surprised this man can walk right now, and he describes how he played through injuries that players will not play through today (e.g. torn ACL). Photos are beautiful and DVD is great. I just wish the book were a little longer, I did not want to stop reading it. A great gift for any football player or fan.

Broadway Joe

Good thing I was watching 60 Minutes on November 19th otherwise I wouldn't have heard about this book. I'm more than half way through the book and so far I'm impressed with what I've read. I've been a fan of Namath's since the late 60's and have always wondered what happened to him after he retired from football. This book is a must have for any Namath fan. The photos are wonderful and the DVD that came with the book is excellent.
