Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A biography of the legendary football coach covers his Italian American roots, his Jesuit training, his relationships with wife and family, and his rise to prominence.


Review:

"This is an astonishingly good book, far broader in scope and subtler in nuance than one expects in a biography of a sports figure, even one as volatile as Vince Lombardi, the near-legendary head coach and goad of professional football's Green Bay Packers and (for one season before his death in 1970) the Washington Redskins."

Robert W. Creamer, Washington Post Book World, 9/26/1999

Review:

"As with his biography of Bill Clinton, FIRST IN HIS CLASS, Maraniss...never forgets that he is profiling a subject who is acutely aware (and in great measure the creator) of his own legend....[The author] has a superb eye for detail. His book is punctuated with telling vignettes that range from the awkwardly sentimental...to the truly bizarre."

Allen St. John, New York Times, 10/10/1999

Book Description: Simon Schuster Australia, Australia, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 235 x 159 mm. Brand New Book. More than any other sports figure, Vince Lombardi transformed football into a metaphor of the American experience. The son of an Italian immigrant butcher, Lombardi toiled for twenty frustrating years as a high school coach and then as an assistant at Fordham, West Point, and the New York Giants before his big break came at age forty-six with the chance to coach a struggling team in snowbound Wisconsin. His leadership of the Green Bay Packers to five world championships in nine seasons is the most storied period in NFL history. Lombardi became a living legend, a symbol to many of leadership, discipline, perseverance, and teamwork, and to others of an obsession with winning. In When Pride Still Mattered, Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss captures the myth and the man, football, God, and country in a thrilling biography destined to become an American classic.
