Recorded interview about the new book on the New England Patriots by Connecticut Author Jeff Benedict
Connecticut’s own Jeff Benedict, the #1 New York Times bestselling author, has a conversation about the New England Patriots dynasty with Michael Holley, a former Boston Globe columnist. Learn how the Patriots dynasty was built and how it lasted for two decades. Jeff Benedict provides answers in a sweeping account based on exclusive interviews with more than 200 insiders—including team executives, coaches, players, players’ wives, team doctors, lawyers, and more. Benedict discusses the near-move of the Patriots to Hartford and uncovers new details about the inner workings of a team notorious for its secrecy.
If you would like a hardcover copy of the book with an autographed bookplate, a limited number of signed editions will be available for purchase at Barnes and Noble in Farmington, CT. This would make a great holiday gift for the football fan in your fan in your life.
