Reviews

"Dunnavant builds his portrait through research and dozens of personal interviews with those who have known Montana. Fans will remember Montana's triumphs in the NFL, but this thoroughly engaging volume also tells the less familiar story of Montana's early career and his battles with his high-school and college coaches, both of whom were slow to recognize Montana's talent. That changed in San Francisco, where Montana and coach Bill Walsh were the perfect match. That special relationship is portrayed skillfully in this carefully researched and fluidly written biography. Sure to be of interest in any sports collection." --Booklist"The story of Joe Montana has been always been captured in moments frozen in time from "The Catch" to the laser to John Taylor to win Super Bowl XXIII. Because these memories have so long endured, we feel like we know Joe Montana. It turns out we don't. Until now. In "Montana" Keith Dunnavant paints a multi-dimensional picture of a man who is so much more than "Joe Cool." Through thorough research and extensive interviews, Dunnavant unlocks the real reason why the underrated kid from Pennsylvania became his generation's best quarterback and a cultural icon. The reason might surprise you." --Tony Barnhart, SEC Network"America's Quarterback is a well-researched, deeply personal account of a college and NFL icon. Luckily for us Keith Dunnavant chose Bart Starr as a subject. This is a fascinating read." --Dennis Dodd, CBSSports.com on America's Quarterback"Dunnavant has done it again. I was mesmerized by Montana. I don't know what was more enjoyable---watching Montana play quarterback or reading Dunnavant's stunning account of his life and times. A truly memorable and magnificent book. A riveting read." --Paul Finebaum, ESPN radio host"Dunnavant does a great job... revealing the truly impeccable character of Starr and that of his wife, Cherry.... This is an important book about one of the NFL's most important players ever." --Bookgasm.com on America's Quarterback"MONTANA is one of the best sports books I've ever read. When Keith Dunnavant tackles a project, he nails it to the wall. You will love this definitive account of Joe Montana's life."--Pat Williams, senior Vice President, Orlando Magic and author of Extreme Winning"Tastefully written and complimenting the true spirit of Joe Montana. A winner and always a champion." --Former teammate and believer in the magic of Joe Montana, Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger"Joe Montana imagined greatness and made it happen when it mattered most. In his richly detailed biography, Keith Dunnavant shows how football's best quarterback turned science into art and changed the game forever." --Dave Kindred, author of Sound and Fury"Keith Dunnavant is one of the most gifted writers and researchers in American book-writing. He brings depth and clarity to Bart Starr the same way he did with Bear Bryant in Coach. I love this book and will proudly display it next to Coach Bryant.'" --Jim Dent, author of Courage Beyond The Game on America's Quarterback"This superbly crafted profile not only explores the heart and soul of one of the game's greatest players, but Keith Dunnavant's "Montana" provides locker room access to some of football's most memorable moments and takes the reader on a journey through a golden era of the NFL." --Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star"An insightful, engaging biography about the best quarterback of modern times." --Tim Wendel, author of Summer of '68"The first serious biography of the quiet legend...well written and researched, this title will be of interest to a wide range of sports fans." - Library Journal "Dunnavant builds his portrait through research and dozens of personal interviews with those who have known Montana.
