Bill Belichick is now coach of the New England Patriots football team. His teams have won three of the past five Super Bowls, and he was an assistant coach on champion teams twice before. In this book, journalist David Halberstam examines what makes Belichick, never a pro athlete himself, successful. He explores Belichick's childhood (his father was a successful collegiate coach) and early professional coaching career. Halberstam's straightforward journalistic style translates well to audio, making listening easy to follow. His language is clear, and he reduces complicated technical football discussions to terms even non-football fans can understand. The abridgment is almost seamless for most of the audio. Large chunks of Belichick's most recent accomplishments have been cut, which is wise since that's the part listeners are most likely to know already. Eric Conger reads with clarity and authority and resists trying to sound like a TV commentator. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
