Your dad would be proud 17 janvier 2001
Par James J. Hagerty - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Yes, I'm an old Redskin fan and was mildly curious about the George Allen era. I was not prepared for this powerful story of George Allen the father and his arms length relationship with his daughter, Jennifer. Yes, the mother Etty and the sons, George, Bruce, and Gregory, are in here too, but Jennifer you finally have the starring role in the George Allen Story. This is a sometimes gripping and often humorous story of a daughter's search for self. My only criticism is of the title which suggests a sports book. It is not worthy of this well-told story about a daughter's search for meaning in her life and, coincidentally, her dad's struggle to make sense of his own life too.

Jennifer Allen Scores an Emotional Touchdown ... 15 novembre 2000
Par Kevin Quinley - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is a terrific yet heartbreaking story, one that should be read by any work-obsessed and preoccupied parent. You see a tale of public success (football coach) blended with private failure (distracted father). What price public success? It is at once a funny yet pathetic portrayal of a man who sacrificed everything on the altar of football glory. I wonder if, in those final lucid moments before the veil descended, George Allen wondered if he should have spent yet more time on football or more time with family? No one has ever been quoted on their deathbed as saying, "I wish I'd spent more time at the office." Even if you never played football or watched it, this is a cautionary tale of one man's career obsession and the poignant struggle of a daughter trying to win Daddy's love in an ultra-macho culture

Life Without Father 1 novembre 2000
Par Julia Henderson - Publié sur
Format: Relié
A painful and poetic tribute to the late football coach George Allen, this book started me laughing on page 1 and left me crying on page 238. Wives, give this book to your football-loving husbands for Christmas. Daughters, give this book to your workaholic fathers for Father's Day (or sooner). If you think you remember George Allen and the Redskins, you need to revisit the glory days with this 5th grade daughter waiting after the game in an empty stadium and read what happened after the last touchdown. It's beautiful.

Beyond Football 8 novembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I read this book in one sitting, I literally couldn't put it down. George Allen is one of my all time favorite heroes, but this book is so much more than football. I cried at the end but I laughed a lot throughout, especially when the author talked about her homelife with her three wild and crazy brothers and her magnificent mother Etty. In fact, you should read this book just to meet Mrs. George Allen, obviously the glue that held everything together and the real power and inspiration for George Allen. Jennifer Allen puts her heart in this and the love she has for her family is real and unsentimental. I'm giving this book for Christmas to people who don't even like football.

Perceptive and hilarious 3 novembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Jennifer Allen can write. As is often the case with coaches' families, everything revolves around football and career. Her father was even more single-minded than most. Humor is of the sad-but-true variety; the first half of the book especially is hilarious. Hard to put it down. Her mother Etty is my new hero -- sees through it all, swears like a longshoreman, maintains her own eccentric identity throughout. There is another book here; I'd like to know what happened to Jennifer between high school and present; much is implied. Still, after all is said and done, the author's bio mentions two sons Deacon and Roman, presumably named after two of her father's great Rams players. She comes from quite a family; one brother a past governor of Virginia, another a Raiders executive. Well worth the time.
