In modern professional sports history, only a handful of elite players have spent their entire career with one franchise. The fact that Tom Brady has spent nearly two decades with one team, together with his on-field excellence, has formed an unbreakable bond with fans of the New England Patriots.

Selected as the 199th overall pick in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft, Brady is arguably the greatest quarterback in pro football history. He has six Super Bowl rings, four Super Bowl MVP awards, and is a three-time NFL MVP. Now playing in his twentieth NFL season, he is one of the longest-tenured players in league history.

Author David Fischer celebrates Brady's career with passionate and vivid prose, supreme photographic images, call-out quotes, and boxed features. In addition, dozens of personal anecdotes and recollections about Brady from prominent members of the Patriots organization and the NFL community enhance the nostalgic experience.

Reviews for Tom Brady: A Celebration of Greatness on the Gridiron

Tom Brady has walked two amazing tightropes during his illustrious career. The first is inside the locker room, where, despite being a mega-celebrity whose notoriety far transcends the sport of professional football, he has carefully managed to remain 'One of the Guys, ' which is hard enough for any quarterback to do, let alone one who has won six Super Bowls. The second tightrope is the one he has walked outside the locker room; there he has managed to live an active non-hermit quite public life as a family man going to his kids' games as the husband of a supermodel whose fame and visibility in her world may exceed his own in his world, all while constructing an invisible shield to keep the public at bay. In Tom Brady: A Celebration of Greatness on the Gridiron, David Fischer shows us how Tom Brady manages all this. --Bob Ryan, sports columnist emeritus, the Boston Globe
