Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
More than two million people a week rush to SI.com to read Peter King's column, Monday Morning Quarterback. There they find a potent mix of analysis, opinion, humor and inside-the-NFL locker- room information delivered as no one else can. In this book, King, the award-winning Sports Illustrated pro football writer, brings the same blend of wit and wisdom, ranging from his famous "10 Things I Think I Think" to his Top 100 player rankings; from the football cliches he hates to the coaching hires he loves; from Brett Favre's golf game to Peyton Manning's comedic skills. And all freshly flavored with King's inimitable observations on the best hotels, the worst airports, the greatest traditions-and coffee, coffee, coffee. There is no journalist better connected to the NFL's players, coaches, general managers and owners, and no writer renders the inside information as entertainingly as Peter King.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-01-01)

Since 1997, legions of devoted pro football fans have been clicking on King's (Inside the Helmet: A Player's-Eye View of Pro Football) " Monday Morning Quarterback" column on SI. com to find the backstory on what occurred in Sunday's game and get the lowdown on the top stories about the league. This is a collection of 20 of King's favorites that represent the flavor of his work, from gridiron details to the more personal, including columns on Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, the softball team King's daughter played on, the death of his beloved dog, and his friendship with a soldier serving in the Iraq War.

To spice up this greatest-hits collection, King has added new material in his column's "Ten Things I Think I Think" vein, including what he would change about the league, the top coaches, the worst Hall of Fame snubs, and rankings of the top 100 players of today and all time. The border of each page is taken up with more past column highlights: notable quotations, prescient predictions, blockheaded forecasts, odd facts, pop culture references, and travel notes.

Verdict: An amiable mix of old and new material from a popular sportswriter. For all football fans.
