About the Author

JEFF PEARLMAN is the New York Times best-selling author of six books, including Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s and Sweetness: The Enigmatic Life of Walter Payton.


"Jeff Pearlman writing about Brett Favre is a perfect match of author and subject, making Gunslinger as rollicking and raucous and joyous as Favre was improvising at Lambeau Field." --David Maraniss, author of When Pride Still Mattered and Once in a Great City

"Over two decades, Brett Favre was as compelling a figure as any in the National Football League. He alone was 'Must-See TV.' In Gunslinger, Jeff Pearlman provides an extraordinary look at every facet of the life of a man who performed on sport's grandest stage and who had one helluva time along the way." --Al Michaels

"Jeff Pearlman's deeply reported book is an unprecedented picture of an unprecedented athlete. Brett Favre emerges as at once incorrigibly childish and a magnetic leader of men. Perhaps never in sports history has a star so big inhabited a market so small. Gunslinger leaves an impression of Favre that is neither simply good nor bad, but rather something nearly nonexistent in sportswriting today: a full portrait of a human being." --David Epstein, author of The Sports Gene

"Here's a story as iconic as 'The Gunslinger' himself, Brett Favre. Like Favre, Jeff Pearlman goes deep--and scores." --Adam Schefter, author of Romo: My Life on the Edge and Think Like a Champion

"This is the deepest understanding we are likely to have of Favre for quite some time . . . Pearlman's book is a complete, satisfying biography of a gunslinger who, for both better and worse, was far more complex than most fans have understood." --Kirkus Reviews
