While his team has reached the top of the NFC North standings, Green Bay quarterback BRETT FAVRE's autobiography has been moving up the charts. The book, "FAVRE", has now reached the New York Times best-seller list, even before the holiday season.
Co-published by the National Football League and Rugged Land LLC, "FAVRE", will appear on the New York Times Hardcover Nonfiction Best-Seller List (ranked No. 33) to be published on November 21.
Favre, who has led the Packers into first place in the NFC North with nine touchdown passes during the team's four-game winning streak, wrote the autobiography with his mother BONITA and Green Bay Press-Gazette columnist CHRIS HAVEL.
The book features contributions from Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback TERRY BRADSHAW, best-selling author MARK BOWDEN, and PETER KING of Sports Illustrated. "FAVRE" is filled with more than 150 stunning four-color action shots, personal memorabilia, and all the stories of Brett's fall Sundays.
The mayor of La Crosse, Wisconsin, will honor Brett's mother with "Bonita Favre Day" on Thursday as she visits on a book-signing tour during the season.
In addition, a DVD from Emmy Award-winning NFL Films is included with the book. Entitled "In Their Own Words: Brett Favre" the DVD reveals Favre's intensity, humor, competitiveness and humanity using rare interviews, archival action footage and exclusive sound captured on the field, on the sidelines and in the locker room. It's the perfect film to watch before kickoff.
