Promotional Information

NOW IN PAPERBACK- Former NFL general manager and three-time Super Bowl winner Michael Lombardi reveals what makes football organizations tick at the championship level. From personnel to practice to game-day decisions that win titles, Lombardi shares what he learned working with coaching legends Bill Walsh of the 49ers, Al Davis of the Raiders, and Bill Belichick of the Patriots, among others, during his three decades in football.

About the Author

MICHAEL LOMBARDI was most recently on the New England Patriots coaching staff for Bill Belichick after thirty years working in the front offices of the San Francisco 49ers, the Oakland Raiders, and the Cleveland Browns (where he was general manager for two years). He writes for Bill Simmons's The Ringer, where he also hosts his top-ten sports podcast, GM Street.


"Simply put, Lombardi's first-person, all access, total insider account of working with three dynastic legends is as good a behind-the-scenes sports book as I've ever read." -Jerry Thornton, Barstool Sports

"Fans will immerse themselves in this revealing insider's glimpse into pro football...His comments on the skills required of NFL head coaches are particularly revealing: x's and o's, sure, but also practical concerns like setting clear guidelines for discipline, making room arrangements on the road, even planning meals and diets. Those who read this informative, eye-opening account will learn much about what makes a great NFL team." -Booklist

He shares true behind-the-scenes glimpses and anecdotes of the behind the scenes world of our industry." -Sean Payton

"Michael Lombardi got his masters in football from The Masters of football - Bill Walsh, Al Davis, Bill Belichick. Now he passes those memorable lessons on to his fortunate readers so they can receive an advanced education in coaching, personnel, management and strategy" -Adam Schefter, ESPN NFL Insider and author of The Man I Never Met

"My only criticism if Michael Lombardi's book is that I enjoyed it too much. The characters and stories were irresistible. But make no mistake, this is a very serious book. Lombardi extracts a meticulous and full-fledged blueprint for organizational excellence from a raft of hard evidence. This is a guidebook for excellence-and it applies way beyond the gridiron. Any thoughtful business leader, for example, could assemble a bundle of useful, integrated ideas that could transform organizational performance. Bravo!" -Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence

"As someone who loves the game of football but is also interested in business strategy and leadership, this book was entertaining and useful." -Inc.

"This is a solid insider look at how NFL teams are made, and is also a useful guide for sports coaches-or office managers-creating their own teams." -Publishers Weekly
