All the Way: My Life in Four Quarters (Hardcover)
In the wake of the 50th anniversary of his legendary Super Bowl "Guarantee," the NFL icon who first brought show business to sports shares his life lessons on fame, fatherhood, and football.
Namath was instantly heralded as a gridiron god, while his rugged good looks, progressive views on race, and boyish charm quickly transformed him - in an era of raucous rebellion, shifting social norms, and political upheaval - into both a bona fide celebrity and a symbol of the commercialization of pro sports. By 26, with a championship title under his belt, he was quite simply the most famous athlete alive.
