"In game after game we thought we knew well, McGinn sheds the kind of light that only a deft student of the game can." - Peter King, Sports Illustrated "You might think you know a lot about football—about why a particular team won the Super Bowl, or maybe why a particular team lost. But unless and until you read Bob McGinn's The Ultimate Super Bowl Book, you won't have a clue just how much more there is to know. - USA Today "When I read this book I thought, Wow, this is the perfect book for me. I've always wanted to know about other Super Bowls. The X's and O's are the reason why I couldn't put it down. The interviews are unbelievable. It was just very informative. There was a lot of history I didn't know. I definitely recommend it." - LeRoy Butler, former Super Bowl champion with the 1996 Green Bay Packers "The best book ever on America's greatest game. THE VERDICT: Essential for all football lovers." - Library Journal starred review "Bob McGinn is one of the best pro football writers in the country. His attention to detail is unmatched. The care he has taken in this book to break down each Super Bowl game reveals a new dimension on the players and the games. Bob has captured the best of this country's most celebrated sporting event. It is one of the most compelling NFL works I have read." - Kevin Harlan, CBS Sports
"Rather than a picture book or one that gets fixated on all the sideshow aspects of the Super Bowl, McGinn is unusually committed to making sense of what happened on the field" - Christian Science Monitor
