Coming from a fan of football in general, I was moderately excited about this book. It was recommended to me by a fellow fan. The story itself does a good deal of work setting the stage about the relationship and comparison of the two quarterbacks, but I still feel there was a deliberate attempt to shade in favor of Manning. Maybe that was the authors way to even the scales between the two players, but if so, it felt like a disingenuous attempt to hide a personal bias. The author paints Manning as a saint, and shades Toms achievements. They also curiously leave out Peytons college transgressions and his later HGH allegations, but make an appoint to emphasize Spygate (while leaving out important details of context) and the farce that was Deflategate (again without due diligence in the fact department). So, bias aside, it was good to hear more behind the scenes about the contrasting history and how each had a vastly different road to success. I have a lot more respect for what each has accomplished, but even more for Tom, probably to the chagrin of the author. Definitely a good read if you can weed out the opinion from fact.
