    Patriots Reign
    Education of a coach
    Moving the Chains
    Tales from the sidelines
    No Excuses

    In that order, the book on Charlie Weiss IMO was poorly written, very anecdotal.. not a lot of substance. The first four give pretty good insight into how the Pats do business, done business and into the mind of BB.. these books also make us realize how lucky we are to have Mr. Kraft & the braintrust.

    Darryl Stingley's book is "Happy to be Alive".. I got if off of Amazon.com used it was published in 1983. Forgot about the Pepper Johnson Book, somehow lost it will have to pick it up again.

    The New England Patriots, Triumph and Tragedy by Larry Fox was a gift to me when I was a kid. Good historical book about the teams history. Written in 1979. On the back of the dust jacket it has a picture of the $100,000 check written to The New England Patriots Football Club from the University of Colorado for the Chuck Fairbanks signing. Very cool.
