Overview

Overview

Joe Montana was the face of the San Francisco 49ers during their years of glory in the 1980s. He was Joe Cool, known for his remarkable calm on the field. He was also the Comeback Kid, the quarterback who led his team, time after time, to come-from-behind wins in the fourth quarter. Altogether, Montana won more than 70 percent of the games he started as a pro, and the Niners dynasty captured four Super Bowl titles under his leadership. The numbers and records alone are impressive enough, but what is even more amazing is that Montana made it all seem simple. He made impossible plays look easy. He made a brutal, nerve-wracking, dangerous job-being a starting quarterback in the NFL-look easy. He even made winning the Super Bowl look easy.

One of the football superstars is highlighted in this biography series, "Football Superstars." Joe Montana was the face of the San Francisco 49ers during their years of glory in the 1980s. He was Joe Cool, known for his remarkable calm on the field. The contents take you through his early days, college, the Early 49ers, the Late 49ers and retirement. There are good photographs with explanations, inserts with important information, subtitles within the chapters—Meet Joe Cool, Early Days, Joe College, The Early 49ers Years, The Late 49ers and Kansas City Years, and Retirement. The added pieces, Statistics, Chronology and Timeline, are benefits to the reader. This well-laid-out book includes a glossary, bibliography, further reading, picture credits and index. The book has information on the back cover about Joe Montana, about the series "Football Superstars and about the author; books in the series are also listed. What a nice-looking book and series! It would also be useful for low reading level high school students. It could capture the person who does not usually read about sports! Reviewer: Naomi Butler
