"Halberstam takes the classic sports-bio formula...and transforms it into a nuance-rich story of individual triumph and social history." (Booklist)
I enjoyed the audiobook. From the clear reading by the narrator to the depth and quality of research and thoroughness that we've come to expect from the late David Halberstam, this audiobook delivers. I've long been a fan of Belichick's professional approach towards his craft, and the brilliance in which he manipulates cold hard facts with the greater unknowns of human nature and motivation.
The narrator takes the subject matter a bit too seriously for me at times, which otherwise only slightly detracts from a very entertaining "listen".
We all know Bill's an exceptional coach, but this uncritical, almost fawning, work doesn't illuminate at all. Not especially interesting, and not really well-read.
I guess that he is just not that interesting a character, because the story is simply boring. It's like listening to a biography of an average Joe. Nothing happens. I can't recommend it.
