Publisher's Summary

In this revealing, in-depth look at the NFL's greatest quarterback controversy, Adam Lazarus takes listeners into the locker room and inside the huddle to deliver the real story behind the rivalry - when Joe Montana and Steve Young battled on and off the field and forged one of the finest football dynasties of all time. From 1987 to 1994, the two future Hall of Famers spurred each other on to remarkable heights, including three Super Bowl wins and four MVP awards, setting new standards for quarterback excellence.
The two men couldn't have been more different in background, personality, and playing style, and their competition created as much tension as it did greatness, forcing Montana to prove that he was still the game's best quarterback and Young to prove that he was a worthy successor.
Featuring candid interviews with Montana, Young, Jerry Rice, George Seifert, and many more, Best of Rivals brings to life the story of two sports legends, the golden era of football their rivalry presided over, and the amazing legacy it produced.

Excellent backstory of Montana and Young

As a diehard 49ers fan, I loved this story. It really shed some light on the QB controversy while providing tons of interesting facts and stats. My two criticisms are that it ended talking about a different team other than the 9ers, and at times it seemed to portray Montana as a bighead/villain. Other than those, this is a well-told, informative story for any NFL lover.

Great book

The only thing I didn't like about it is the guy that narrated it you can tell he wasn't as he continuously missed pronounced NFL players names it got annoying but the story was so good it didn't matter much but you would think the guy narrating it would have at least done his research on how to say someone's name
