“This book is a terrific read.” —Jim Rome “I couldn’t put it down.” —Brian Kilmeade “Details his great football life . . . A remarkable story. An amazing saga.” —Mike Francesa Steve Young produced some of the most memorable moments in NFL history. But Young’s most impressive victories have been personal ones that were won off the field when no one was watching. QB is a remarkably revealing memoir of a Mormon boy with a 4.0 GPA, a photographic memory, and a severe case of childhood separation anxiety. As an eighth-string quarterback at Brigham Young University, Young persevered through homesickness and a coach who said he’d never make it as a quarterback. Determined to prove his coach wrong, Young became an All-American, finished second in the Heisman voting, and was the top draft choice coming out of college. After signing the largest contract in sports history, he was so overwhelmed by expectations that he nearly walked away from football. Young’s quest was always about grit. Now, he shares the experience of being inside his helmet while he runs through opponents both on and off the field.
