"Anderson, an accomplished storyteller, writes about the Manning football legacy--warts and all--with style and verve, backed by an abundance of research and scholarship."--Publishers Weekly "An expertly written impressionistic account of the first family of football."--Library Journal "This is one of the most beautifully written and memorable books I've read in years--stunningly spectacular. I couldn't put it down. Once again, Lars Anderson has shown why he is one of the seminal sportswriters of this generation. The Mannings is an absolute masterpiece."--Paul Finebaum, ESPN college football analyst and New York Times bestselling author of My Conference Can Beat Your Conference "Lars Anderson drills to the core of the Manning family. I love this book because it's not just about football; it's about how to raise a family."--Bruce Arians, head coach of the Arizona Cardinals "Anderson's yarn never wobbles. . . . A winner for fans of modern football."--Kirkus Reviews "Anyone who has paid attention to the NFL over the last five decades understands the significance of the Mannings. They are to America's best-loved game what the Holbeins are to portraiture, what the Bachs are to classical music, what the Kardashians are to mindless reality television, an unsurpassed dynasty. In The Mannings, Lars Anderson delivers an incisive, honest, and thorough chronicle of the first family of football."--Jeremy Schaap, New York Times bestselling author of Triumph: The Untold Story of Jesse Owens and Hitler's Olympics
