Library Journal Review
Here we have the suffocatingly cloying life story of Gordy Gronkowski (founder, G&G Fitness Equipment) and his five enormous, athletic sons, three of whom have played in the NFL. The book, coauthored by Schober (Bike Path Rapist), includes a chapter on the father, who played football for Syracuse, and one on each son: Gordie, the former minor league baseball player; Dan, a tight end with four teams in three years, who caught nine passes; Chris, a fullback with three teams in three years, who caught eight passes; Glenn, an H-back at Kansas State; and Rob, an All-Pro tight end with the Patriots. Rob, of course, is the selling point of this family branding exercise. There are also chapters on weight training, mental toughness, and competition. VERDICT Reading this book is like being forced to sit through an annoying neighbor's home movies. Not recommended. (c) Copyright 2013.
