From a New York Times best-selling author, the full, definitive biography of Brett Favre, football's ultimate gunslinger and fan favorite, whose rise from small-town Mississipi obscurity to the top of the American sports landscape was the stuff of legend--and whose fall from grace has been just as great

Reviews

-Jeff Pearlman writing about Brett Favre is a perfect match of author and subject, making Gunslinger as rollicking and raucous and joyous as Favre was improvising at Lambeau Field.- --David Maraniss, author of When Pride Still Mattered and Once in a Great City -Over two decades, Brett Favre was as compelling a figure as any in the National Football League. He alone was 'Must-See TV.' In Gunslinger, Jeff Pearlman provides an extraordinary look at every facet of the life of a man who performed on sport's grandest stage and who had one helluva time along the way.- --Al Michaels -Jeff Pearlman's deeply reported book is an unprecedented picture of an unprecedented athlete. Brett Favre emerges as at once incorrigibly childish and a magnetic leader of men. Perhaps never in sports history has a star so big inhabited a market so small. Gunslinger leaves an impression of Favre that is neither simply good nor bad, but rather something nearly nonexistent in sportswriting today: a full portrait of a human being.- --David Epstein, author of The Sports Gene -Here's a story as iconic as 'The Gunslinger' himself, Brett Favre. Like Favre, Jeff Pearlman goes deep--and scores.- --Adam Schefter, author of Romo: My Life on the Edge and Think Like a Champion -This is the deepest understanding we are likely to have of Favre for quite some time . . . Pearlman's book is a complete, satisfying biography of a gunslinger who, for both better and worse, was far more complex than most fans have understood.- --Kirkus Reviews "Jeff Pearlman writing about Brett Favre is a perfect match of author and subject, making Gunslinger as rollicking and raucous and joyous as Favre was improvising at Lambeau Field." --David Maraniss, author of When Pride Still Mattered and Once in a Great City "Over two decades, Brett Favre was as compelling a figure as any in the National Football League.
