It’s easy to forget that the New England Patriots were once the laughingstock of the NFL, a nearly bankrupt team that had never won a championship and was on the brink of moving to St. Louis. Everything changed in 1994, when Robert Kraft acquired the franchise and brought on board head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady. Since then, the Patriots have become a juggernaut. How was their dynasty built, and how did it last for two decades? In THE DYNASTY, acclaimed journalist Jeff Benedict provides richly reported answers in a sweeping account based on exclusive interviews with more than 200 insiders, as well as never-before-seen recordings, documents and electronic communications.

In 2009, Tiger Woods was the most famous athlete on the planet. Married to a Swedish beauty and the father of two young children, he was the winner of 14 major golf championships and earning more than $100 million annually. But it was all a carefully crafted illusion. As it turned out, Woods had been living a double life for years --- one that unraveled in the aftermath of a Thanksgiving-night car crash that exposed his serial infidelity and sent his personal and professional lives over a cliff. Still, the world has always wondered: Who is Tiger Woods, really? In TIGER WOODS, Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian look deep behind the headlines to produce a richly reported answer to that question.

by Steve Young, with Jeff Benedict - Memoir, Nonfiction, Sports

Steve Young produced some of the most memorable moments in NFL history: his electrifying 49-yard game-winning touchdown against Minnesota, his last-second touchdown strike to Terrell Owens to beat Green Bay in the playoffs, and his record-setting six touchdown passes in Super Bowl XXIX. But his most impressive victories were personal ones that were won off the field when no one was watching. QB is a remarkably revealing memoir of an athletically gifted Mormon boy with a 4.0 GPA, a photographic memory, and a severe case of childhood separation anxiety. At the same time, Young was absolutely fearless --- and unstoppable --- whenever he had a ball in his hands.
