Reviews

[Ribowsky] recounts Landry's life honestly, avoiding both distortion and hagiography while portraying a stoic, flawed man of honor.... A triumph of extensive research and interviews. It will be welcomed by all football fans.
In Ribowsky's authoritative biography, Landry appears more stoic king than coach, his ever-present fedora serving as a crown.... Ribowsky's thorough examination of a surprisingly complicated man offers original reporting, which serves here as merely a complement to this impressively researched work.... An eloquent, honest tribute to a football genius.
Fascinating.... Readers looking for a recap of one of football's greatest innovators and coaches will be enthralled.
[A] huge and hugely entertaining biography.... Extraordinary.... That Ribowsky, an outstanding biographer with books on Al Davis, Satchel Paige and Howard Cosell to his credit, doesn't idolize Landry across the book's 640 pages makes his judgment all the keener.--Allen Barra
