New York Times Best Seller

From the number-one New York Times best-selling coauthor of Tiger Woods comes the definitive inside story of the New England Patriots - the greatest sports dynasty of the 21st century.

It’s easy to forget that the New England Patriots were once the laughingstock of the NFL, a nearly bankrupt team that had never won a championship and was on the brink of moving to St. Louis. Everything changed in 1994, when Robert Kraft acquired the franchise and soon brought on board Head Coach Bill Belichick and Quarterback Tom Brady. Since then, the Patriots have become a juggernaut, making 10 trips to the Super Bowl, winning six of them, and emerging as one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world. Today, the team’s 20-year reign atop the NFL stands as the longest in league history. 

How was the Patriots dynasty built? And how did it last for two decades? In The Dynasty, acclaimed journalist Jeff Benedict provides richly reported 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 - as well as never-before-seen recordings, documents, and electronic communications.

Through his exhaustive research, Benedict uncovers surprising new details about the inner workings of a team notorious for its secrecy. He puts listeners in the room as Robert Kraft outmaneuvers a legion of lawyers and investors to buy the team. We listen in on the phone call when the greatest trade ever made - Bill Belichick for a first-round draft choice - is negotiated. And we look over the shoulder of 40-year-old Tom Brady as a surgeon operates on his throwing hand on the eve of the AFC Championship Game in 2018.

But the portrait that emerges in The Dynasty is more rewarding than new details alone. By tracing the team’s epic run through the perspectives of Kraft, Belichick, and Brady - each of whom was interviewed for the book - the author provides a wealth of new insight into the complex human beings most responsible for the Patriots’ success. We watch the NFL’s savviest owner treat Brady like a son, empower Belichick to cut and trade beloved players, and spend sleepless nights figuring out diplomatic ways to keep Brady and Belichick together for two decades. We come to understand how a genius head coach keeps his players at an emotional distance and blocks out anything that gets in the way of winning. And we experience the relentless drive, ferocious competitive nature, and emotional sensitivity that allows Brady to continue playing football into his 40s.

The result is an intimate portrait that captures the human drama of the dynasty’s three key characters while also revealing the secrets behind their success. This is perhaps the most compelling and illuminating book that will ever be written about the greatest professional sports team of our time.

Worth Your Time - Not Exceptional

25 hours is a long book and it ends up being worth your time. It’s enjoyable to hear the story about the team from start to present day. That being said it really drags at certain points then glosses over other moments a fan would assume to hear much more about. It’s not so much a bad vs good it’s a Kraft glow piece where he is the true hero of the dynasty and coach and QB are great but flawed. At the end you feel like Kraft and his people were most cooperative and certainly used this book to try and let the public know that as great as the others are the only reason the dynasty survived was Kraft.

My Love for the Pats

I fondly remember cheering for Drew Bledsoe in the early years of my childhood. I am thankful to Jeff Benedict for writing this publication of the New England Patriots football team. I have learned more in these past 30 hours of reading than in my entire life. This makes me love Robert Kraft, Tom Brady, and Bill Belichick even more. I look forward to more titles like this.

for the ultimate Patriots fan

As a die hard Pat's fan since 1975, author Jeff Benedict provided great details through interviews and stories over the last 20 plus years of the Kraft-Belichick-Brady era. Highly Recommended if you like the Patriots and want to understand why they did things the way they did.

Superb!

I'm not a Patriots fan, or even an avid NFL fan. I was drawn to the 5 star reviews. The book didn't disappoint. Superbly written and narrated, this is a masterpiece.
