Robinson's life of legendary Notre Dame football coach Knute Rockne stands unchallenged as the definitive work on this icon of the Roaring Twenties. The author has created a lively story that almost makes readers feel that they are in the locker room as Rockne famously asks the team to 'win one for the gipper'.... Robinson sets Notre Dame against the backdrop of religious bias in the form of Ku Klux Klan activities in Indiana in the 1920s and the role the Notre Dame football team played in trying to overcome that bias.... This excellent biography is highly recommended for all public libraries. * Library Journal *
A solid portrait of one of football's most solid figures. * The New York Times Book Review *
