Vince: A Personal Biography of Vince Lombardi by Michael O'Brien

Published to widespread critical acclaim, Vince has been called "the definitive biography" of an American legend. With stunning revelations and anecdotes, Vince Lombardi's life is pierced together with painstaking care in research, detail, and historical accuracy. Based on more than two hundred interviews, including those who played with him, from his early coaching days at St. Cecelia High School in New Jersey to West Point, the New York Giants, and his championship seasons with the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins. Drawing upon unpublished Lombardi family papers, Vince clarifies the thirty years of mystery and contradiction that have swirled around the legend of Vince Lombardi.

Vince goes beyond the sidelines to reveal the true character of Lombardi. He was dedicated and narrow, intelligent and dogmatic, self-restrained yet emotional, abusive but apologetic. His moods could swing from deep gloom to soaring exuberance in seconds. He was compassionate, kind, charitable. He could also be gripped by uncontroolable anger. Above all, Vince paints a portrait of a very human man who committed his life to winning.
