I grew up in Wisconsin during the 1960's as a devout Packers fan with Jim Taylor as my idol. Although I was not disappointed in the book I wished that it would have captured more of his personal ethos of hard work and detailed recollections of his life both with and outside the Packers. I contend that Mr. Taylor has more to afford in life lessons than a focus on season briefs and yardage gained. The statistical summary at the end of the book was sufficient to illustrate his NFL Hall of Fame worthiness. There were too many instances where my curiousity about the real Jim Taylor were piqued and then left stranded (e.g. being blackballed by NFL coaches as one of the original free agents). When I finished the book I was left with not a desire to read anymore but rather his telephone number so I might engage in a genuine conversation with my childhood idol.
