Eli Manning The Making of a Quarterback By Ralph Vacchiano, Foreword by Ernie Accorsi
Super Bowl XLII was one of the most amazing moments in New York Giants history. From the final drive, to “the catch,” to beating the then undefeated New England Patriots and giving them an 18-1 record; it was an incredible day for all Giants players and fans…especially Eli Manning.

That was only the beginning.

With the rematch in Super Bowl XLVI, the New York Giants stormed into Indianapolis, facing the New England Patriots again in the Super Bowl, and just like the first meeting, they once again came out victorious. Eli Manning once again came out as the Super Bowl MVP, which he highlighted with the incredible pass to Mario Manningham in the final minutes of the game.

Eli Manning: The Making of a Quarterback is written by longtime Daily News writer, Ralph Vacchiano, and tells the story of the “ELIte” quarterback, with amazing details of his two Super Bowl victories and updated through the 2016 season.

You will follow Eli from the bold draft-day trade that brought him to New York, through his dramatic ups and downs on and off the field, his first training camp, and his last minute heroics in Super Bowl XLII, to his courageous come-from-behind victory in Super Bowl XLVI.

Complete with exclusive interviews with NFL stars, coaches, and executives and a foreword by former Giants General Manager Ernie Accorsi, Vacchiano uses his unfettered access to the World Champion Giants to present a true behind-the-scenes look at the quarterback and team that defied the odds twice and proved themselves to be the best of the best.

—Peter King, Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports

“With some groundbreaking reporting and skillful storytelling, Ralph Vacchiano has taken a story that we think we know, and added new insights, new perspectives and new information—not the least of which is how the late Wellington Mara nearly derailed the trade that put Eli Manning in a Giants uniform. Eli Manning: The Making of a Quarterback is not only a compelling account of the unlikely rise of the young Manning, but it provides any student of the game with a detailed blueprint on how to build a championship team the right way.”
—Sal Paolantonio, National Correspondent, ESPN

“In a universe glutted with pro football books, Eli Manning: The Making of a Quarterback stands out in every facet. Ralph Vacchiano has fashioned a masterpiece of brilliant, thorough reporting and page-turning reading. The closing chapters are as compelling as the tensest thrillers ever produced for the screen. How good is this book? It’s in the front row of the calss and will be regarded as a classic.”
—Jeff Davis, author of Papa Bear: The Life and Legacy of George Halas
