You can hear bodies collide and feel tendons pop as four-time All-Pro guard Ed Newman takes you inside one of the world's most unforgiving workplaces--the NFL. Brainy, candid, vivid, and visceral, Newman's Warrior Judge highlights his transformation from a hapless Miami Dolphins rookie into an elite player and then, by way of a law degree, an elected judge in South Florida.From humble beginnings as a Jewish kid in Long Island, Newman is drafted by Don Shula and his "perfect season" 1972 Miami Dolphins. He overcomes culture shock, alpha-dog hazing, coaches' doubts, cancer, injury, and antisemitism. Newman ultimately earns a starring role alongside future Hall of Famers, like Dan Marino, Larry Little, and Dwight Stephenson. Hovering over this constellation of talent is Coach Shula, always a relentless critic and sometimes a mentor and father figure. Newman's story climaxes when he juggles law school final exams with Super Bowl XIX. Warrior Judge is as inspiring as it is lively and surprising; it's a tale of adversity vanquished by against-all-odds determination. Newman was a passing quarterback's dream. He tells it how it went down from his unique perspective.--Dan Marino, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Warrior Judge is an interesting read of what it's like to be an offensive lineman in the NFL.--Larry Little, NFL Hall of Fame offensive guard Lively, often irreverent, and most of all authentic, there aren't any NFL books like this.--Michael Ennis, New York Times bestselling author After reading his thought-provoking book, all I can say is, A big hit is coming your way.--Kim Bokamper, Pro Bowl Miami Dolphin and TV personality Warrior Judge is a beautiful tribute to the good old Dolphin days. It lovingly remembers the players of the 1972 "perfect season."--Dick Anderson, two-time Super Bowl Champion
