Summary

17th September 2020 marks the centenary of the National Football League. It reaches that landmark as a behemoth, an all-encompassing conglomerate that is the most lucrative sports league in the world - and also the dominant pop culture entity in the United States. The NFL is also making considerable gains worldwide. The International Series has been heading to London since 2007 with incredible sell-outs at the four games in 2019 at Wembley and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadiums. 

This may lead some to believe the league has always been a roaring success story. History contradicts that reputation, for the NFL of today is a by-product of the humblest beginnings. It is a rocky road filled with genius detours and wrong turns, with heroes and villains and, most importantly, with thousands of games. Any Given Sunday details some of the biggest of those, beginning with the first contest ever played in 1920 and working through to multiple key fixtures from last season. Each chapter is complemented by countless interviews with some of the game's true legends, from Hall of Fame players and coaches to owners and executives, first-hand accounts from games, including multiple Super Bowls and, finally, full access to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and NFL Films' extensive archives, including pieces not available to the public.

Any Given Sunday takes listeners from the boardrooms to the field, into the locker-room and inside the journeys of legends, providing a full snapshot of the NFL's epic first century.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Back on the shelf

I struggled with this book, and in particular Jeff Harding's narration. The history of the NFL is fascinating, maybe I need to digest Any Given Sunday in the written format.

Great audiobook

I loved this book, it broke down NFL history amazingly and the reader did a great job with the story and different sense stresses that were expressed in the book.
