Saints selling books

Saints head coach Sean Payton is a Super Bowl winner AND best-selling author. Payton’s book, Hometeam, debuted at No. 8 on the New York Times best-seller list for Hardcover non-fiction.

Drew Brees also has a book out (co-authored with Mark Brunell, by the way) titled Coming Back Stronger: Unleashing the Hidden Power of Adversity. It is currently No. 5 on Amazon.

Brees had three book signings in New Orleans, Saturday, which, according to the Times Picayune, attracted not just legions of readers, but roughly 1,000 tailgaters.

Drew Brees' book signing schedule released

If you’d like to shake the hand of the man who wrote Coming Back Stronger – and not necessarily that of radio host Chris Fabry, who collaborated on the book – you’ll have plenty of opportunities. The schedule for New Orleans QB Drew Brees’ book signings have been released, and you can find the ledger here .

From July 6-July 26, Brees will roam seven states – traveling everywhere from Ridgewood, N.J. to San Diego to New Orleans – for 15 signings to peddle his memoir.

The book details Brees’ comeback from the shoulder injury that nearly derailed his NFL career. Combine that with Hurricane Katrina and a Super Bowl MVP last year, and you’ve got, as the book publisher writes, an “inspiring message of hope and encouragement proves that with enough faith, determination, and heart, you can overcome any obstacle life throws your way and not only come back, but come back stronger.”
