“Tom Brady, the New England Patriots’ successful and durable quarterback, has a new book. It is entitled The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance, and it is large and handsome. . . . The book’s tone is humble and encouraging. . . . Most important, the book provides useful photographic and textual instructions for dozens of body-weight resistance training exercises, many done with resistance bands.”
—The New York Times
“Brady is the healthiest great champion the NFL has ever had, both physically and mentally. That is the most interesting and important aspect of his trajectory. His revolutionary act has been to seize control of his own body from a league that specializes in ruining men with Mesozoic training methods. . . . On the cusp of 40, he has never looked or played better in his life, and he appears to have more years left in those strikingly limber arms and legs.”
