Description

The New York Times bestseller that's "heaven in hardcover" (New Orleans Times-Picayune) for Saints fans.

In the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, no symbol of disaster was more potent than New Orleans' Superdome: it became a horrific shelter of last resort where the utterly desperate rode out the storm.

Four years later, in that very stadium, the New Orleans Saints won the NFC championship and earned their first-ever trip to the Super Bowl, where they defeated the favored Indianapolis Colts 31-17.

This is the inspirational true story of a city recovering from disaster and a team with a history of heartbreak, as seen through the eyes of the coach who would help elevate them both to long- forgotten greatness.

    Not your usual book by a coach. It's written like he's in the room just telling you a story. Quick entertaining read.

    As a fan who has followed this team from the beginning (43 years), I enjoyed the book. I though I had heard all the stories but I had not. If you are a fan it is a must read. I cried and screamed for joy when we kicked the field goal to get to the Super Bowl and when Tracy Porter ran the interception back for a touchdown in the Super Bowl. I had those same feelings as i was reading this book.

    This story of triumph for a city, a state, and a sports team, will go down in history as one that will never be forgotten. Every turnaround begins with a vision and a commitment to the completion of that vision through hard work and perseverance. Sean is a great leader who believes in the concept that once you show people that you care about THEM first, they will follow YOU down the path to greatness. May God continue to bless The Payton family in all that you do and become.

    Sat down to read this book and finished it in one sitting. This book is a tribute to a great organization that clearly understands family, fun, hard work, and integrity. Some books you read and pass on this is a keeper to be re-read again.

    Excellent, fast-paced read which gives the reader true insight into the motivation and management of an NFL team. From here on out, I will take winning much less for granted! Great book!
