Baker & Taylor
A candid memoir by the football legend recounts his professional career on the field, his provocative exploits and playboy lifestyle off the field, and his accomplishments on the path to NFL stardom.

Perseus Publishing
Boasting stunning, never before seen photographs and an NFL Network DVD, NAMATH is an autobiography befitting its author: brash, brazen and winning.

A rebellious and gutsy gunslinger out of Western Pennsylvania's Beaver Valley, Joe Namath redefined the meaning of underdog. After winning a NCAA National Championship for Paul "Bear" Bryant's Alabama Crimson Tide, he embarked on a professional football career unlike any before or since.

Known on and off the field for his astronomical contract, fur coats, Fu Manchu mustache and playboy lifestyle, "Broadway Joe" was one of the most gifted and cagey quarterbacks ever. The only quarterback to throw for over 4,000 yards in a 14-game season, he did it all with battered knees and unsurpassed charisma. While his Super Bowl III guarantee would make him a pop culture icon, it was Namath's battle-tested grit and courage that took him into the Hall of Fame.
