I'm reading this a second time through right now. I'm getting a number of new things out of it. Lombardi was so successful at some cost to his family life. He knew that in order to be the best, he would have to dedicate extra time and attention to being the best, and sacrificed other aspects of his life in that way.

Vince Lombardi-loved, hated and idolized. This is a very thorough examination of his life, his background, belief structure, and motivations. Very detailed and very good. Lombardi was definitely a man from a different generation, and this book provides some insight into why the Great Depression generation is often considered the "greatest". Pride and honor still mattered.
