Back cover copy

Football games aren't won on Sundays in the fall. They're won on draft day in the spring--in the war room.

New York Times bestselling author Michael Holley takes readers behind the scenes of three contending National Football League teams and into the brilliant minds of Bill Belichick and his two former front office proteges, Thomas Dimitroff and Scott Pioli.

Though they once worked together to create one of the greatest franchises in modern NFL history, these three master strategists are now competitors. Belichick continues at the helm of the New England Patriots, while Pioli heads the Kansas City Chiefs and Dimitroff runs the Atlanta Falcons. Yet still they share a common goal: building the perfect team, one draft pick and one trade at a time.

War Room is packed with never-been-told anecdotes as well as new insights from team officials, players, coaches, and scouts, all leading to surprising and groundbreaking insights into the art of building a champion.
