Reviews

The New York Times Bestseller! "This is an obvious must-read for University of Michigan fans but is also recommended to anyone interested in college sports, university administration, and organizational leadership." - Library Journal "John Bacon is deservedly regarded as the poet laureate of Michigan Football, but his writing is essential to anyone who wants to understand how Big Time College Sports works and why it is stuck in hearts even when it makes us crazy." --Joe Drape, author of New York Times Bestseller Our Boys: A Perfect Season on the Plains with the Smith Center Redmen "No person is more qualified to tell the story of the milestones and missteps in Michigan's football programs than John Bacon, who has the sources, relationships and storytelling mastery to pull back the curtain at an institution where the curtain is thick. ENDZONE provides a fascinating view into a powerful and successful program that, for a while, lost its way." --Joe Schad, ESPN College Football Insider "John Bacon has fast become the preeminent documentarian of all things Michigan football and this is just the latest in a long line of must-read material." --Rich Eisen, Lead Host, NFL Network, author, Total Access "Jim Harbaugh always has been one of the most intriguing figures in all of football, the NFL or college.ENDZONE brings them together, helping to understand what motivated Harbaugh to leave the successful San Francisco 49ers for the struggling Michigan Wolverines, and why Michigan fans have received him as their savior." --Adam Schefter, ESPN NFL Insider "More than just the story of how Jim Harbaugh came home to Ann Arbor, Endzone takes readers deep inside one of college football's most storied programs at a critical moment of uncertainty and tumult. Bacon's incisive reporting reveals details even die-hard fans couldn't know about what went wrong with Michigan football and who emerged to fix it." --Stephen Henderson, Detroit Free Press columnist and editorial page editor, Pulitzer winner for commentary, and U-M class of '92 "You should read it. If you are a Michigan fan, you should read it. If you are a rival fan, you should read it. If you are part of any organization that has customers and/or employees, you should read it. If you are a fan of a college football team you should read it, then try to get your athletic director to read it. The lasting lesson of Endzone is that one man can't do anything, but many can. It teaches that loyalty out of love is greater than loyalty out of fear and that either is a weak substitute for morality. It teaches that candor is virtue, that authenticity is recognizable, and that a person or a program's aspirations are every bit as important as their accomplishments." --Seth Fisher, MGoBlog
