Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
From the dust jacket: The first in-depth look at the World Champion San Francisco 49ers since they won their remarkable third Super Bowl trophy. It all began in 1979 with the arrival of head Coach Bill Walsh. Walsh inherited a demoralized team that had not reached the playoffs in six years and had never won a league championship. He wasted no time in building an organization whose roster over the next 10 years would include the likes of Joe Montana, Roger Craig, Jerry Rice, Dwight Clark, Ronnie Lott, Randy Cross, and Jeff Fuller. But behind the incredible statistics, there is the drama -- the death threats on Montana's life, the lack of confidence that has plagued Walsh, and owner Eddie DeBartolo's rage and its consequences when the team lost its third opening play-off game in a row. The authors have been given unprecedented access to the 49ers, and have conducted candid interviews with owner DeBartolo, Bill Walsh, Joe Montana -- and scores of other players. The result is a gripping portrait that belongs in the library of any self-respecting football fan.
