Publisher's Summary

From the NYT best-selling author with unprecedented access to the Patriot franchise comes Belichick and Brady, the epic inside story of the rise and dominance of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the New England Patriots.

Featuring interviews from Patriots players and coaches, Holley presents a fascinating portrait of the partnership between Tom Brady, the Patriots' star quarterback, and Bill Belichick, the team's prolific coach. Chock-full of behind-the-scenes anecdotes and information exploring how they have strategized and weathered controversies, all culminating in four Super Bowl rings, this is required listening for any Patriots fan and students of the game of football.

By examining the relationship between this dynamic quarterback and coach duo, Holley explores exactly how these two men have formed the core of the greatest dynasty in the modern-day NFL.

Brought all the Patriots history to life again!

Couldn't put it down, so accurate an account I relived it again, the Good , bad and unfair Belichick Brady history. At times emotional for me, vivid writing, loved it.

Another great book by Michael Holley

I am not sure how he got into the inner circle of the Patriots but provides more behind the scenes information than anyone else. The next question is what's next?

Great insight from behind the Patriot Curtain.

Great book. A deep look into the Patriots mindset. Player and coach philosophy, focus and determination.

wow!!

being a Pittsburgh Steelers fan I have always hated the New England Patriots.... (speaking of course 2001 AFC Championship game) but after listening to this book, I look at Coach Belichick and Tom Brady in a complete different manner. Mr. Robert Craft also by far would be the best boss to work under. the dynamic of football and the team building of New England in general that this book brings out is absolutely incredible.... it begs to question, if Art Modell wouldn't of moved Cleveland to Baltimore and would've given Belichick the keys to the kingdom like Craft did would this dynasty of what new England is be Cleveland...

Great book for any sports fan

The story of 2 of the greatest figures in the history of sports. The author does a superb job of delving into what separates Brady and Belichick from the rest.

As a Steelers fan.... I LOVED THIS BOOK!

This book is so detailed, and interesting. Before this book I couldn't stand Brady and Belicheck. Now I feel I have a grudging admiration for them both.

A great listen with some bite.

I enjoyed listening to the history. As a Patriots fan, learning about the building of a dynasty was great.
What was hard, was having a wound dug into with a fingernail and then having the whole finger probe around inside.
This might be a better read for non Patriots fans, but if you don't mind a little pain as a Patriots fan than than it may be for you.

Holley writes very well.

A long recap of the Belichick/Brady Era. Narrator left something to be desired. Mispronounced names and silly sounding "voices" throughout.
