Amazon.com description: Product Description:

A powerful biography of one of the greatest football players of all time, in the spirit of Namath and Johnny U

No quarterback in the history of the NFL can match Bart Starr's record of achievement. In an unprecedented seven-season run from 1961–67, Starr led the Green Bay Packers to five NFL championships and the first two Super Bowl titles, while revolutionizing the position and laying the foundation for the quarterbacks of today. Yet until now this quiet man's remarkable career has often been obscured by the Lombardi mystique.

Acclaimed author Keith Dunnavant brings Starr's dramatic journey to life in vivid detail, sketching the definitive portrait of an iconic figure who defined the quarterback position during the 1960s, when professional football stormed out of the shadows to capture the nation's imagination. A remarkable blend of personal memory and historical narrative, Bart Starr is a compelling biography of an American hero and the perfect companion to the classic When Pride Still Mattered.

"A definitive biography of the best man ever to take a snap from center." --Allen Barra, Dallas Morning News

"One of the best sports history books you will read." ―NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell



"An ode to stoicism, modesty and discipline―the virtues that made the Packers' dynasty." ―Mark Kriegel, New York Times bestselling author of Namath

"Allowing no room for debate, Dunnavant shows that Starr was the indispensable man in the creation of the Green Bay Packers dynasty." -- Dave Kindred, author of Morning Madness

"An absolute masterpiece …. Hands down, the best sports book of the year." --Paul Finebaum, Radio Talk Show Host
