SPORT MAGAZINE'S BOOK OF THE YEAR

More than any other sports figure, Vince Lombardi transformed football into a metaphor for the American experience. The nine seasons during which he led the Green Bay Packers to five world championships is the most storied period in NFL history. Lombardi became a legend, a symbol to many of leadership, discipline, perseverance, and teamwork, and to others of an obsession with winning. Maraniss captures the myth and the man, football, God, and country in a thrilling biography that has become an American classic.

This year, on the fortieth anniversary of Vince Lombardi's death, the immortal coach strides onto the Broadway stage in a new American play, Lombardi, based on Maraniss's critically acclaimed book, written by Academy Award winner Eric Simonson.

In this groundbreaking biography, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Maraniss captures all of football great Vince Lombardi: the myth, the man, his game, and his God.
