Super Bowl XXV, the epic 1991 showdown between the New York Giants and the Buffalo Bills, was the closest episode in Super Bowl history. But what established that day as one of greater significance was the cloud of war in the Persian Gulf hanging over the game and the nation. Thousands of U.S. soldiers were able to watch the Giants vs. the Bills, but on Arabic Standard Time, which for them, resulted in Super Bowl Monday.

Review:

Excellent retelling of the most memorable-and heartbreaking-season in Bills history. Unfortunately for Bills fans, the ending is still the same.--Vic Carucci "Nfl.Com "

Lazarus' approach to the book, the details, the human angles is a winner. I remember covering the game in Buffalo for the AFC title, and I also remember sitting in my Buffalo hotel room and watching the invasion of Iraq on TV. The writers got together and chartered a plane directly from Buffalo to Tampa because there was no two-week break. It was all so surreal, and then they played the game and it became a classic.--Ed Bouchette "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "

Adam Lazarus has captured in vivid detail Super Bowl XXV, played in the shadow of the first Iraq War, which made for an uneasy and anxious mood at that time in America. Super Bowl Monday is also a book for the true football fan. It really is well done.--Frank Gifford

Super Bowl Monday goes by quickly, and doesn't suffer from the problem of having most readers know the outcome. Readers will learn why the game developed the way it did, and enjoy the story all over again.

The most interesting and accomplished examination of Super Bowl XXV I have ever read.--Steve Sabol, President, NFL Films

That 1990 Giants team epitomized all the virtues of a what a championship team should represent. It was a special group. Lazarus captures so accurately and so well the emotion and the intensity of that moment. We had shown people we could do it with O. J. [Anderson] and [Jeff] Hostetler and an old defensive back coming from another team. And the way he writes about Matt Bahr, too; all those characters that contributed in an unlikely fashion. The way they all contributed to the team was just beautiful and what the NFL is all about. No one person was bigger than the team.--Everson Walls, New York Giants Cornerback in Super Bowl XXV

Lazarus not only does a tremendous job of bringing the reader back to 1991, when the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants faced off in Super Bowl XXV, but he also sheds light on numerous players' back stories that set the stage for one of the most exciting Super Bowls in NFL history.--Jason Aikens, head curator, Pro Football Hall of Fame

Great reporting of an unforgettable edition of America's sporting classic. And proof that the show must go on not just in spite of global threats, but as a Super Bowl of reasons to overcome them.--Arthur Kent, Skyreporter.com

If I reminisce, I could recount every defensive play and its impact on the final outcome, and from the moment the fighter jets flew over the stadium, until the final kick, all of my emotions and energy were focused on being a Super Bowl champion. My memories of Super Bowl XXV are poignant and vivid, and Adam Lazarus captures the passion of a moment considered one of the greatest games of all time. Readers will be transported back in time and enjoy every minute of it.--Mark Kelso, Buffalo Bills safety in Super Bowl XXV

Two of my favorite things in life are American history and the Buffalo Bills. With exhaustive research, Lazarus captures the patriotic fervor engulfing the nation in January of 1991 and masterfully documents a Bills season where they came the closest to winning a Super Bowl in franchise history. Worth a read.--Luke Russert, MSNBC
