brady-vs-manningBook Review: Brady vs Manning: The untold story of the rivalry that transformed the NFL, by Gary Myers

If you compiled a list of the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time, it would not be complete without Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. The two of them have set and held many of the records for quarterbacks in the NFL. In addition to their individual accomplishments, they have gone head-to-head in many crucial games throughout their respective careers. Many of these contests resulted in their respective team going on to the AFC Championship Game and/or Super Bowl.

This is the story told by Gary Myers in his book, Brady vs Manning: The untold story of the rivalry that transformed the NFL. Not only does he describe the games in which these two quarterbacks competed against each other, Myers also describes their upbringing, college environments, relationships in the locker room, and family life outside of football. In short, Myers provides insight into the people and events that shaped the lives and careers of these two successful men. The epilogue brings the story up to date with Peyton Manning winning Super Bowl 50 and Tom Brady being investigated for Deflategate.

The book is well-written, insightful, and entertaining. If you are a fan of these two quarterbacks or just enjoy the NFL in general, you will enjoy reading this book.

I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
