Reviews

"The Dynasty is Jeff Benedict's latest masterpiece. . . . It's a relationship book, it's a football book, it's a business book. . . . I was surprised at the level of detail in Robert Kraft's quotes and his willingness to allow [the book] to go to some pretty painful places. . . . If you love football the way I do, you'll just eat up these stories."
-Colin Cowherd, The Herd

"An epic business story . . . The Dynasty goes deeper than anyone has before on the Beatles-esque collaboration among an owner, a coach, and a star player."
-Bloomberg

"Most often in our business, there are writers and there are reporters, and rarely do the twain meet. In The Dynasty, Jeff Benedict shows he's masterful at both. His reporting on the very well-worn (trust me) earth of the Patriots' greatness is groundbreaking, starting with his illumination of the evening in the hospital in 2001 when Drew Bledsoe's life was in peril and going all the way through to previously unknown details of the emotional play-by-play of Tom Brady's departure from New England. The imagery and prose are just as strong. Such a great read from Benedict."
-Peter King, NBC Sports, author of "Football Morning in America"

"For two decades we've been peering up at the castle looming over the American sportscape with the same mixture of awe, suspicion, and envy with which peasants have peered up at palisades for millennia. So when a deft and lyrical serf named Benedict slips inside, lowers the drawbridge, and waves us in to see the ramparts, towers, turrets, and castle keep where the Brady-Belichick-Kraft trinity ruled . . . how can a peasant resist?"
-Gary Smith, longtime Sports Illustrated writer and author of Beyond the Game

"This is an extraordinary book. The narrative is comprehensive, intimate, and original. I've watched and written about the entire Patriots dynasty, and yet this epic story provides new insights and startling details that I didn't know. I can assure you that there's not another Patriots book like it."
-Michael Holley, author of Belichick and Brady and Patriot Reign

"Smart, engaging . . . Action-packed . . . Benedict has long blended two interests-sports and business-and the Patriots are emblematic of both. . . . Good reading for organization builders as well as Pats fans."
-Kirkus Reviews

"A marvelously told story of the New England Patriots . . . This is the story of a well-run and successful business, very much like Apple or Amazon. . . . You don't need be a sports fan to enjoy this masterpiece study of a successful sports franchise. . . . With substantial research, great attention to detail and superb writing, The Dynasty is a book worthy of the team it chronicles."
-Book Reporter

"Richly detailed . . . Benedict's book breaks new ground in utilizing the oft-neglected vantage point of the owner's box."
-Hartford Courant

"A page-turner for Patriots fans. There are plenty of behind-the-scenes, untold nuggets, along with more detailed versions of often-told stories that have taken place during Robert Kraft's ownership of the team. . . . It was as if Benedict was a fly on the wall for many of these significant events, and in some cases, he was in fact present to witness some indelible moments."
-Boston Herald

"The Dynasty is an unprecedented peek behind the curtain of the Patriots' football machine."
