The untold story of Vince Lombardi''s first season as coach of the 1959 Green Bay Packers.
From the Publisher:
When Vince Lombardi took the job of coaching the Green Bay Packers in 1959, he inherited a team that had gone from legendary to laughing stock. They hadn’t fielded a winning team in over a decade and had gone 1-10-1 in the 1958 season despite having seven future Hall of Famers on the team. They were a team accustomed to losing and in desperate need of a turnaround.
 
That First Season chronicles that turnaround at the hands of Lombardi, himself serving as a head coach for the first time. The Packers were a team of talented underachievers more used to lax coaching and late nights than grueling practices and curfews. Lombardi’s no-bull coaching style helped hammer them into winners who operated with machine-like precision. Every football fan knows that the Packers under Lombardi were champions, but That First Season shows how he did it, bringing readers the inside story of a sports dynasty.|

Praise

"Eisenberg reveals a master motivator who was able to infuse his burning ambition and supreme confidence into a group that had collectively typed themselves as losers. If readers enjoyed Jim Dent's JUNCTION BOYS...they'll love this inspiring tale." (starred review) - Wes Lukowsky 09/01/2009
