It’s Better to Be Feared: A Sports Book Full of Intimate Reporting, Savvy Insights, and Page-Turning Writing

From a Wall Street Journal review by Edward Kosner of the book by Seth Wickersham titled “It’s Better to Be Feared: The New England Patriots Dynasty and the Pursuit of Greatness”:

After an astonishing 20-year run with Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots, Tom Brady won his seventh championship ring last year, at the age of 43, as he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers over the Kansas City Chiefs. Then he almost swamped interest in this year’s big game when news of his retirement was leaked, denied, then finally announced. The media frenzy Brady touched off confirmed, as if any confirmation were needed, that he is the greatest pro-football quarterback of all time.
