As a Giants fan, I wanted to love this book but I really don't think it was at all well written. It skipped around far too much to be able to follow without thinking too hard. I also think this book should be subtitled Accosi's obsession with Eli - or Vacchiano's obsession with both - kind of defeats the purpose in reading Accorsi's book which is still on Mt. TBR. It was interesting to read how closely and how intently Accorsi had been following Manning and seeing some of the scouting reports and other pieces of the buzzle that led to the draft day trade. On the other hand, some of this is "duh" in the ensuing four seasons. Most notably how the hype around Plax was just that - and how many "key" or other pieces are no longer with the team: Smith, Boss, Shockey, Mitchell, Strahan. I fear more will follow following SB46. A decent read, but nothing special.
