From the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Tiger Woods comes the definitive inside story of the New England Patriots - the greatest sports dynasty of the 21st century.
How was the Patriots 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 two hundred insiders - including team executives, coaches, players, players' wives, team doctors, lawyers, and more - as well as never-before-seen recordings, documents, and electronic communications.
Through his exhaustive research, Benedict uncovers surprising new details about the inner workings of a team notorious for its secrecy. He puts readers in the room as Robert Kraft outmaneuvers a legion of lawyers and investors to buy the team. We listen in on the phone call when the greatest trade ever made - Bill Belichick for a first-round draft choice - is negotiated. And we look over the shoulder of forty-year-old Tom Brady as a surgeon operates on his throwing hand on the eve of the AFC Championship Game in 2018.
But the portrait that emerges in The Dynasty is more rewarding than new details alone. By tracing the team's epic run through the perspectives of Kraft, Belichick, and Brady - each of whom was interviewed for the book - the author provides a wealth of new insight into the complex human beings most responsible for the Patriots' success.
