"The Ultimate Super Bowl Book" goes beyond the hype and hoopla of football's annual main event to explore every NFL championship game played since January 1967. With stories, stats, and quotes from the men who were there, author Bob McGinn dissects how each team--both the winners and the losers--was built to championship-caliber status, where each team's strengths and weaknesses lay, what strategies were employed, what adjustments were made and unexpected events transpired, and ultimately, how victory was achieved. Filled with quotes from players, coaches, and team officials, each game analysis provides an inside look at what went on in the locker rooms, on the sidelines, and between the goal posts for every Super Bowl. An in-depth statistical record and top ten lists of the most memorable performances round out this authoritative, comprehensive look at a seminal sporting event.

I definitely recommend it."-- LeRoy Butler, former Super Bowl champion with the 1996 Green Bay Packers ." . . the best book ever on America's greatest game.
