Back cover copy

Undefeated explores the Miami Dolphins' legendary 1972 season, the only perfect season in NFL history, and the journey to the championship--a story of heartbreaking injuries, miraculous finishes, and tested relationships.

Coach Don Shula transformed the team--through hard work, long practices, and his no-nonsense attitude toward the game--from a laughingstock expansion team, where careers went to die, into a championship franchise. Led by such greats as Larry Csonka, Bob Griese, Nick Buoniconti, Larry Little, Mercury Morris, and Jake Scott--the Dolphins were undefeated in the regular season and went on to win Super Bowl VII, in one of the greatest feats of toughness, perseverance, and discipline the NFL has ever seen.

Based on years of research and interviews, Undefeated examines what is perhaps the single greatest accomplishment in team sports history: the unforgettable NFL season in which the Dolphins never lost a single game. There has never been a football team like those Miami Dolphins, and there may never be again.

Review quote

"An entertaining and meticulous journey back in time, illuminating the men and personalities who, in some cases, are as memorable as the team's 17-0 record."--Jim Trotter, Sports Illustrated
