Product description


"With deep reporting and a profound understanding of the football life, Ian O'Connor comes as close as humanly possible to solving the mystery of the great football sphinx, Bill Belichick, and his unmatched coaching career." - David Maraniss, best-selling author of When Pride Still Mattered, A Life of Vince Lombardi

"I thought I knew everything there is to know about the brilliant, secretive coach. The Hoodie would have made a model Prisoner of War. He gives up nothing. And yet Ian O'Connor somehow cracked the code at Fort Foxborough, producing this compelling portrait of the coach and the man. A must-read for football buffs and anyone who appreciates leadership.'' - Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe columnist and best-selling author of Francona (with Terry Francona)

"In Belichick, Ian O'Connor has delivered an excess of compelling, fresh reporting and muscled writing to construct one of our great coaching biographies. O'Connor illuminates one of sports' most secretive and mysterious figures. Fast-moving, exhaustively researched, Belichick will transform the way you consider the man and the Patriots' dynasty." - Adrian Wojnarowski, ESPN Senior Writer and best-selling author of The Miracle of St. Anthony

"A tour de force of world-class reporting and masterful, fair-minded storytelling." - Armen Keteyian, contributing correspondent to 60 Minutes and best-selling author of Tiger Woods

"It is simply not possible to produce a more interesting, informative and beautifully written biography than Ian O'Connor has in Belichick...This is the kind of gold-standard reporting that all journalists aspire to, and few actually achieve." - Mike Vaccaro, award-winning columnist, New York Post

"A valuable portrayal of both the public and private sides of the NFL's leading coach for the past 20 years that will be in demand among sports collections." - Library Journal, starred review

"A fascinating look inside the team so many of us love to hate." - Washington Post

"Ian O'Connor's biography ranks among the best in regards to the NFL . . . A comprehensive profile that manages to dig deep under Belichick's famous hoodie . . . fascinating . . . This is an important biography, as O'Connor provides a greater understanding of arguably the greatest NFL coach of all time." - Chicago Tribune
