Terry Pluto is one of my favorite sportswriters because he makes the endless pain involved in being a Browns fan today a little more palatable. This is a great story of their last championship, which occurred during the year the Beatles stormed America.

This was an enjoyable if not all that entertaining read. Pluto pulls some great stories from the training camp, but overall he manages to sap the games of any thrill and excitment. The player stories at the end are interesting. The beginning and the end of the book are the best and most interesting. Other than that it has helped confirmed my opinion of Art Modell as an A-hole.
