Leahy's Lads had some good insights into the man and his intense personality but the recaps of the games played were sometimes like box scores. It would have been better if the author focused on fewer games and offered more details on how Leahy prepared and executed the victories.

If you're an ND grad or one of the millions of subway alumni, this is a great book for you. A fascinating glimpse of Leahy and the great players and teams of the 40s.

This book is a wonderful chronicle of the men who played for Frank Leahy and the impact that he had upon them as they progressed beyond Notre Dame. My grandfather played fullback for Leahy and I had him sign copies for my kids as a lasting momento of the experience he had while playing at Notre Dame.
