Fly Eagles fly! Five-time Pennsylvania Sportswriter of the Year Ray Didinger updated his and late co-writer Robert S. Lyons’s bestselling The Eagles Encyclopedia—“the definitive book for any Eagles fan” (Philadelphia Daily News)—to reflect the quintessential underdog season that led to the Birds’ Super Bowl LII victory. Didinger covered the NFL for The Philadelphia Bulletin and the Philadelphia Daily News for more than 25 years, has authored or coauthored ten books about sports and writing, and currently appears on Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia.
Mark Leibovich’s books include number-one bestselling This Town, a “vastly entertaining and deeply troubling” (The New York Times Book Review) exploration of the political culture in Washington, D.C. Chief National Correspondent for The New York Times Magazine and a former correspondent for The Washington Post, he won the National Magazine Award for profile writing. Venturing beyond the playing field into locker rooms, owners’ meetings, draft days, culture wars, and the existential fears about the future of the game, Big Game is an in-depth analysis of professional football at its economic and social peak.
