From Library Journal:

Lea covered the Green Bay Packers for the Milwaukee Journal from 1954 to 1972. Here he chronicles the legendary Vince Lombardi and his Packer teams during the 1961, 1962, 1965, and 1966 championships; the 1967 "Ice Bowl"; and Super Bowls I and II. Lombardi's squad set the benchmark for National Football League clubs. The coach was a no-nonsense man who expected everything from his players (as David Maraniss reveals in When Pride Still Mattered, a biography of Lombardi). His approach quickly gained the respect of the players, turning a bunch of losers into a united team that won seven "Magnificent" titles. Rounding out the text are an index, a good selection of great archival photographs, anecdotes from players, a foreword by Paul Hornung, and an introduction by Bart Starr. Vince Lombardi Jr. wrote the afterword. Recommended where demand warrants.-Larry R. Little, Penticton P.L., B.C. (c) Copyright 2010.
