About the Book and Author
On the eve of the 50th anniversary of one of the most storied Super Bowls of all time, Bob Lederer has authored "Beyond Broadway Joe," the consummate book on the 1968 New York Jets. On Jan. 12, 1969, the Jets astonished the nation when they beat the heavily favored Baltimore Colts to win Super Bowl III. The key to the Jets’ success was quarterback Joe Namath, whose superstar talent, revolutionary personality, cockiness, and charm made him an instant celebrity. But Namath didn’t do it alone. Lederer, a lifelong Jets fan and a professional business writer and editor for 40 years, takes readers on a fascinating journey with exclusive insights from the surviving players, coaches, and management of that championship team. In " Beyond Broadway Joe," the members of that legendary team share their often funny, sometimes poignant, and always perceptive personal stories and memorable anecdotes about the Super Bowl team and its legendary win.
