Instant Replay: The Green Bay Diary of Jerry Kramer
Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, Aug 15, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 320 pages
This classic sports book takes readers inside the 1967 season of the Green Bay Packers, following that storied team from training camp to their dramatic victory in Super Bowl II.
Candid and often amusing, Jerry Kramer describes from a player's perspective a bygone era of sports, filled with blood, grit, and tears. No game better exemplifies this period than the classic “Ice Bowl” conference championship game between the Packers and the Dallas Cowboys, which Kramer, who made the crucial block in the climactic play, describes in thrilling detail. We also get a rare and insightful view of the Packers' legendary leader, coach Vince Lombardi.
As vivid and engaging as it was when it was first published, Instant Replay is an irreplaceable reminder of the glory days of pro football.

I am not a football fan though I loved "THE BLIND SIDE"by Michael Lewis and "QUIET STRENGTH" by Tony Dungy- both must read books. This book didn't seem to teach anything. I liked the parts of Lombardi and it was interesting to see the team jell but it lacked something major to me. Read full review

Read in 1971, the first summer we were married. I figured if I was going to spend my life with a coach, I'd better get ready! A great inside look at a great team. Memories of this book are wrapped in memories of Lee - a great combination. Read full review
