Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“One thing you want with books like this is locker-room dish, and enough scenes are tantamount to the crazy stuff you see in a classic football insider’s account like Roy Blount Jr.’s Three Bricks Shy of a Load." – Boston Globe

“Anyone who appreciates NFL history, plus any longtime fans of the Giants, Patriots, Jets, Cowboys, and Dolphins, is going to want to run out to your local bookstore to buy Parcells."– Ben Volin, Boston Globe 

Parcells: A Football Life, written with Nunyo Demasio, is well worth it, especially the part that deals with his time with the Patriots, a behind-the-curtains look we so seldom get.” – Bill Reynolds, Providence Journal 

"For those who adore the former coach of the Giants, the Jets, the Cowboys and the Patriots, this is the tome for you." – Star Ledger 

"Impossible to resist" – Newsday

One of the best sports books that I've ever read -- surprised at how often Bill Parcells came across as a very flawed human being. Truly a complete biography. Bravo to Parcells for allowing this, and to his author for pulling it off..

I liked this book so much, I'm giving a hardcover for Christmas. Plenty of personal insight. Plenty of insight on past games as well, the personal bringing a whole new level of enjoyment. I predict a best seller in the northeast.

what a waste of time and money. Not a single sentence about anything personal about anybody. 600 pages on games. No insight at all. Unless your a Huge fan of who carried the all or pass the ball Ect. every game he ever coached. That is all he talks about.
