As a proud owner of the team amongst my hundreds of thousands co-owners this book of course is a must read. There is no other team quite like the Green Bay Packers in all of sports.

There will always be much debate over the so termed "America's Team" It is irrelevant in this case because this is truly the only team of and by the people. The book itself is a treasure trove on the history and indeed trials and tribulations of the NFL franchise. Well presented in great detail. How the smallest market team out of Wisconsin survived under such daunting odds through the years and not only survived but prospered and claimed more Championships than any other team is an amazing story.

Book description
On the field, legends like Don Hutson, Ray Nitschke, and Brett Favre made the Green Bay Packers into a professional football powerhouse. But the history of the NFL's only small-town franchise is as much a story of business creativity as gridiron supremacy. Behind every Packer who became a legend on the field, there was an Andrew Turnbull, Dominic Olejniczak, or Bob Harlan, leaders whose dedication and creativity in preserving the franchise were unwavering.
"Green Bay Packers: Trials, Triumphs, and Tradition" tells the improbable story of professional football's most iconic team, and along the way gives a unique window into the rise of modern professional sports. As the NFL has evolved into a financial juggernaut, the Green Bay Packers, with more than 364,000 stockholders, stand alone as the only professional sports franchise owned by fans, thus providing the only public record of how a sports team is run.

Featuring more than 300 photographs, some never before seen, "Green Bay Packers" illustrates how the most creative team in sports is also one of the most successful, with names like Lambeau, Canadeo, Lombardi, Hornung, Holmgren, and White leading the way to a league-best 13 NFL titles and 21 Hall of Fame inductees. This comprehensive, up-to-date history of the Packers includes the 2011 season.
