This is a very good biography of Joe Namath, rich in personal details. The biographer obviously likes Namath and has great respect for his athletic abilities, but he doesn't try to sugarcoat Namath's narcissism, his hard drinking, and his blond-a minute lifestyle. The surprise comes near the end when Namath marries, becomes a devoted father, but gets dumped by his equally narcissistic wife.

This book not only gives the inside story of the original “Bad Boy” athlete it also gives great insights into the beginnings of the AFL and what led us into Pro Football, as we know it today. Namath is like the Elvis Presly of sports, where Elvis forever changed music, Joe forever changed sports in America.
Warning: Parts of this book contain raw locker room language.

Very good in depth account of Namath's life, possibly TOO long for some readers. I found it informative and factual. Also it jarred my memory of events I'd forgotten. Recommend to any football fan, although younger generation may not appreciate Namath's achievements.
