David Halberstam: Remembering America's Greatest Sports Journalist
- His book on Bill Belichick, The Education of a Coach, explains more lucidly than any other football book how great head coaches—Belichick, Bill Parcells, and the like—out think their opponents year after year...and continue to field top teams without the benefit of top draft choices.
- His book about Ted Williams, The Teammates, is lyrical in its ability to evoke both Williams' majesty as a hitter and what it was like to be a Red Sox fan in the 1940s, when baseball was the only professional sport that really mattered.
- The Summer of '49, about the season-long dogfight between the Yankees and the Red Sox, is probably the single best book about a pennant race you'll ever find.
- And finally, his book The Amateurs, about four rowers hoping to win a medal in the 1984 Olympics—for pride and honor, in a sport in which they had no hope of ever earning a dime professionally—is the single best sports book I've ever read (and I've read it at least five times).
