Editor reviews

Hall of Fame coach Marv Levy recounts his life and career, which includes his storied tenure with the Buffalo Bills, whom he led to four consecutive AFC titles in the early 1990s. While there are many thrilling tales of games - including the Bills' miraculous comeback win over the Houston Oilers - more important are the lessons learned through triumph and defeat, all told with vibrancy, good humor, and insight. Alpha Trivette's buoyant and colorful performance enhances Levy's marvelous prose, making Marv Levy: Where Else Would You Rather Be? a joyous, engrossing experience.

Summary

Forty-seven years of joyous celebrations after victories and crushing disappointments after defeats are encompassed in Marv Levy: Where Else Would You Rather Be?, but it is about more than just touchdowns and interceptions - it’s about how a person like Marv Levy, dedicated to his life’s work, can begin his career as the obscure assistant coach of a high school junior varsity team and decades later lead a team to the Super Bowl. Listeners will learn about the character, persistence, and personalities of those incomparable Buffalo Bills of the 1990s who so resolutely pursued their impossible dream. Sports fans will look forward to each adventure contained in this audiobook, and will no doubt agree with the sentiment of the author: “Where else would I rather be than right here - right now!”

Marv’s marvellous!!!...

Marv’s articulations of his experiences are a joy, he leaves you to make up your on his abilities.. It’s long but well worth it , when you finish the overwhelming emotion you are left with is “wow , what a guy”. If you want too experience the inside of the NFL, it’s all in there for you...Throughout this book there was nowhere else I would have rather been..

Maybe for a Bills or Levy fan

If you are already Marv Levy fan and want to know more about him, this book will definitely fill that void. Alternately if you are a big Buffalo Bills fan looking to enrich your history of major people in the franchise, this may be of interest to you as well. However if you are just a football fan or someone looking to gain insight into football from one of the better coaches, you will probably be disappointed. To me, the book read as a personal memoir with a few chuckle worthy jokes that were alternately self-deprecating and digs at others when Levy felt something that went wrong wasn’t his fault (like his stint at Cal). Full disclosure: I didn’t bother finishing it. I got about halfway through before I gave it up as a waste of my time.
