The origins of the Super Bowl began humbly on an autumn day in 1966, not on the green grass of the gridiron, but in a New York City boardroom where businesspeople, politicians, and a few ardent football fans battled to bring the world championship to bear. Congress had just passed legislation that would allow the upstart American Football League to merge with the favored National Football League.

When you think of the Super Bowl, you probably think of Joe Montana or Joe Namath or the Steel Curtain, but whenever people in the National Football League office think of the Super Bowl, they think of Don Weiss. You may never have heard of Don Weiss, who died last Sunday night at 77 and whose memorial service was held Friday in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl. but as an exemplary executive, he was responsible for the day-to-day development of each Super Bowl festival as well as for the minute-to-minute presentation of the game itself.

BEHIND THE SCENES AT THE WORLD'S GREATEST ONE-DAY SPORTING EVENT

One of the Super Bowl's founding fathers reveals 36 years of game-day history

Here is the untold saga of the creation and growth of sports' premier event, the Super Bowl. What started out very humbly in the autumn of 1966 as a hastily organized football game between the respective champions of the two leagues­­NFL's Green Bay Packers and AFL's Kansas City Chiefs­­ the following January has now, 36 years later, turned into one of the biggest sports/media/entertainment/marketing extravaganzas of the year, with more than 800 million fans tuning in worldwide.

A riveting and richly entertaining behind-the-scenes look at the game, The Making of the Super Bowl offers priceless insights for anyone connected with sports. It has been chronicled by Don Weiss, the former NFL executive director who still directs Super Bowl game-day operations. In his NFL career, Weiss also shaped unique perspectives; now they can take their place within football and sports history, where they belong.

In Making the Super Bowl, Weiss shares his fascinating firsthand accounts of the development of the game and how this relatively modest sporting event was consciously transformed over three decades into the major spectacle it is today. Throughout the book, Weiss reveals his insider's knowledge of the history of the Super Bowl and exposes previously unpublished facts and insights from meetings with owners, coaches, players, and others who helped define the event over the years.

A 16-page color insert enlivens this fascinating story, making this a must-read for all football fans­­both casual and committed­­who will devour this inside scoop from the most influential architect of the Super Bowl.

This was not just an outstanding history of the Super Bowl, but also the very entertaining memoirs of the author's many years with the NFL during the Rozelle years. Strongest possible recommendation for anyone with even a passing interest in NFL history.

Like a previous reviewer mentioned, this book is best when Weiss describes the early years of the Super Bowl. Most casual football fans know of the merger between the AFL and NFL in the 1960's but Weiss goes into great detail about how it all came about. Being a Gen Xer myself, I had know idea of the struggle to get the leagues together. Not to mention all the legal battles they went through. One of the interesting tidbits described later in the book is the NFL's black out policy. I had no idea that if it wasn't court ordered, the NFL probably would not show home games to fans, even with sell outs.

If you're a hardcore fan of NFL football and want to learn more about how the SuperBowl came about and the people involved, I would definitely recommend this book. If you're a casual fan, you'll probably find the book a bit tedious with all the minutia Weiss gets into.

I know Mr.Weiss in fact he is a good friend of mine and my families. He has taught me a lot about the Super Bowl. He has also sent the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl programs to my family. He has written a masterpiece. It is very intriguing, and since he was there he gives you all the inside information about the war between the AFC and the NFC. You wouldn't believe what happened in this war of the two leagues. This is one of the best books I have ever read and I recommend it to everyone.

Weiss pretty much ran the Super Bowl from the NFL offices for its first ten years or so. A close advisor to Pete Rozelle, he was certainly on the inside as the NFL transformed from a league less important than college football to today's juggernaut.
This book is strongest in the years 1966-70, the first few Super Bowls, the time of the merger. Weiss gives us almost blow by blow action during this time. After that (and the book is very loosely structured to disguise this) there is some info about the Seventies Super Bowls, and almost none (except for "My favorite years", and some topical references to 9/11) after that, when Weiss was no longer responsible for the running of the Super Bowl. So while the book is billed as a history of the Super Bowl, it is more a history of the first four or five than anything else, with a few later anecdotes. There are plenty of anecdotes, if that is what you're looking for. Oh, and you'll find that Super Bowl III is given the full treatment you'd expect.
Weiss is an NFL insider, and clearly an NFL loyalist as well. The late Pete Rozelle comes across larger than life in this book. While he was a great man and a great commissioner, he doesn't seem human, as recorded by Weiss. Other NFL loyalists (Tex Schramm, for example), get similar treatment, while those less loyal to Rozelle (Al Davis, for example), get the tear down treatment. The Raiders' Super Bowl wins when the league was in the midst of litigation aren't mentioned (and the lawsuits only by allusion). Maybe this would have made Davis look too good? Yet those moments in the locker room, with Rozelle forced to pass the Lombardi Trophy to his litigation opponent, were fascinating for the fan (who doesn't have Weiss's access) to watch. They aren't mentioned.
It's a decent book, and an enjoyable read. But for one looking for a history of this NFL era, read a selection of books, from the rabblerousing "The League" to more loyalist treatments like this, to get a full perspective. There really isn't an unbiased treatment I'd recommend.
