Summary
Steve Young produced some of the most memorable moments in NFL history. The Run--his electrifying 49-yard game-winning touchdown against Minnesota. The Catch II--his last-second touchdown strike against Green Bay. Then there were his record-setting six touchdown passes in Super Bowl XXIX. But Young's most impressive victories were personal ones that were won off the field when no one was watching. QB is a remarkably revealing memoir of an athletically gifted Mormon boy with a 4.0 GPA, a photographic memory, and a severe case of childhood separation anxiety. This memoir gives readers the sense of being inside Young's helmet while he runs through opponents both on and off the field. --
Summary
A memoir by the NFL Hall of Famer shares insights into what it takes to become an elite professional quarterback, describing his unlikely rise in sports as a devout Mormon and high-achieving student with an eidetic memory, the media pressure, his infamous confrontation with Joe Montana and the other factors that challenged his career
