Review by Library Journal Review

The Green Bay Packers are one of a handful of NFL teams that enjoy a truly national following. It is not surprising that Sports Illustrated is mining its impressive text and photo archives to produce its version of an illustrated team history. In addition to sections on the 33 best players and a dozen title games, the book recycles five memorable articles from the magazine: on the town itself, on the Packers' Depression-era Runyanesque player Johnny "Blood" McNally, on the return of Bart Starr as a coach, on the coming of Brett Favre, and on the 2011 Super Bowl win. The mostly color photographs are artfully selected and reproduced to invite happy reverie for Packer fans. However, the 20-page section of photographs of decked-out fans at Lambeau Field is space that could have been better inhabited by more team coverage. VERDICT This will be of interest to Packer fans everywhere. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
