Summary
"With unparalleled access to Heisman Trophy-winning phenom Johnny Manziel, Bruce Feldman has written a modern-day tale about the making of the next superstars in football's most important position: the quarterback. In the world of modern football, with teams worth a billion dollars or more, no position defines a franchise like quarterback. To tell the story of all that goes on to create the perfect quarterback, bestselling author Bruce Feldman gained unique access to "Johnny Football" (that's Johnny Manziel), George Whitfield (a.k.a. "The Quarterback Whisperer"), and other unique players in what has become a specialized and high-stakes business. In the past decade the boom of the private quarterback-coach business, with its pageant-world-for-boys vibe, is changing the position and the game. The QB will tell the story of the interlocking paths of the most fascinating characters involved in this secretive world, examining how advanced analysis has taken root in football. Manziel is one of the most gifted and charismatic collegiate quarterbacks ever, with superior talent and entertaining antics. His guru is a man who has come to be known for making QBs--George Whitfield. And then there is Trent Dilfer, the least talented QB ever to win a Super Bowl, the Salieri to Manziel's Mozart, who wonders why he did not go farther. In The QB, the stories of these three men illustrate how high the stakes of the quarterback game really are, taking readers on a compelling journey into the heart of America's beloved game"--
