As a transplant to Boston, I wasn’t as well-versed in Patriots history as say the history of the Celtics or the Red Sox. But Jerry Thornton has got me all caught up on the trials and tribulations that the Pats have faced in their forty years as a team. Part history, part memoir, Thornton presents the ups and downs of the Pats in a fun and engaging way. This is the perfect book for any reader who is a die-hard Pats fan, or for readers who want to know the history of what is arguably the best team the NFL has today. I can’t wait to get this book in the hands of my customers – just in time for the start of the football season!
