Overview

With extensive reporting and engrossing storytelling, Jim Baker and
Bernard Corbett give us the scenes of one of the NFL's most successful
and popular franchises. Interviews with Giants legends who participated
in these historic moments put us behind closed doors in the
commissioner's office during a fixed game in 1946, in the backfield wit
Frank Gifford as the Giants advance to the championship in 1958, and in
the huddle with Eli Manning as he diagrams the play that would result in
the deciding touchdown in the 2008 Super Bowl.

With an eye for
memorable details and historical significance, Baker and Corbett let the
players themselves tell the war stories that all Giants fans love to
relive, and in so doing, construct an engrossing and exciting history of
the team and the sport.

The book will also feature revealing
statistical sidebars and fresh analysis of the games that throw new
light on the history of the team.
