WHEN PRIDE STILL MATTERED A Life of Vince Lombardi

by | Read by David Maraniss

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1999

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Clinton expert David Maraniss has written a very American story about a very American character, and you don't have to be a football fan to enjoy it. In his depiction of Coach Vince Lombardi, Maraniss demonstrates that a hero with blemishes can be more interesting than a flawless legend. Lombardi, the son on an immigrant Italian butcher, made his teams win by sheer guts and determination, and that is the theme that resonates. It is a pleasure to go back to a time when love of the game was a bigger issue than big money. Maraniss is not the best reader, but you trust him, and political junkies will particularly enjoy his presentation. M.D.B. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
