Tom Brady to release book in September

Getty Images

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will begin his push for a sixth Super Bowl ring in September while he also tries to head to the top of the best seller list.

Simon & Schuster announced in a press release on Thursday that they have acquired the rights to The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance, which will be released in hardcover, digital and audio formats in September.

The “oversized, heavily illustrated, revealing yet deeply practical” book will focus on the approaches to training, nutrition and overall well-being that Brady has developed over the years. It will also include “step-by-step action steps” designed for readers to use in order to increase their own productivity in a way similar to the Patriots quarterback.

“We expect this book to become an essential source for the way athletes of all ages live and train, whether they are in high school or in retirement,” said Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of Simon & Schuster. “The fact that Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time gives him the authority to write this book — but the fact that the principles that he’s espousing go well beyond sports is one of the reasons readers are going to pay close attention to his message.”

Brady previously released a cookbook that sold well despite a $200 price tag. There’s no word on how much this tome will set readers back, but it’s a good bet that there will be plenty of them willing to plunk down what’s necessary for a glimpse into Brady’s life away from the field.

  1. ….i will personally burn up 95 northbound to ensure the baltimore inner barbour bookstores stay well stocked.

  2. I would have really liked to purchase this book, but unfortunately I will be boycotting all Simon & Schuster products as result of their decision to drop Milo Yiannopoulos’ book (currently #1 on Amazon’s bestseller list). I can only hope that Tom will choose a more reputable publisher in the future.

  3. “There will be Plenty of Chowds willing to plunk……” not so many anywhere else as most of us will be waiting for the follow up book on “What really happened to the Cell Phone”…..

  4. Writing a book is incredibly difficult. This will really be done by someone else … “as told to” etc etc.

  5. Peyton Manning’s book on how to constantly make product endorsements in every moment of his life and get paid for it will be published soon after.

  6. I think it’s outrageous the GOAt had to stoop beneath his dignity and his talent level to step on the field with these wussies calling themselves competition for the 5 time World Champions.

    Time to fold them all and get a REAL MAN’s team or two into the league to face the best. Enough is enough.

  7. There is a chapter on Tom selling the most football shirts in the League.

    It states he doesn’t pretend they were worn in an actual game.

  8. Interesting, but it’s a shame the title, “The Lord of the Rings” is already taken. I suppose he’ll just have to settle for “The Greatest Ever.” That’s got a nice ring to it too I suppose…

  9. It’s great that Brady’s regimen works for him
    Whether it’s good genes, determination or a combination of the 3. You can’t argue with the results. But, he’s in a position of influence. To sell junk science by that proven fraud Guerrero is bad. Kids are gonna listen to that cap.

  10. The book I’m waiting for is from the greatest NFL coach of all time otherwise known as Bill Belichick. 🙂 In fact I bet it’s being written now.

    I know I can’t wait to hear his take on the phony completely fabricated cheating scandals that #LyinRoger, his stooges on Park avenue and some jealous owners were complicit in these two frauds against his team.

    You know he will name names and call out the people and organizations that perpetrated these frauds and it will start right at the top.

    Oh it’s gonna be gooooood! 🙂

    Are you scared Patriot Hater? Yeah. You scared.

    🙂

  11. I find it so amusing when people still post about cheating, even after Brady’s drop the mic SB comeback earning his 5th ring and cementing his legacy as the GOAT.

    Just the fact that you read all things Patriots reveals your obsession. I can only imagine how painful the SB comeback was to watch when you are a troll (not to mention the Malcolm Butler interception). I wouldn’t expect things to get any better this year, so keep trolling while the Pats keep winning.

    #5

  12. This will drive the haters crazy. I love it.

    He is a great example for others – have goals, make sacrifices, believe in yourself, stay out of trouble. Delayed gratification.

    This is a guy who in college, didn’t party at all, just studied and prepared and prepared. Total dedication.

    He’d be a great example if he hadn’t been smeared by the NFL. Ironic.

  13. Sadly, Eli will not be writing a book on investing in autographed game worn NFL Helmets and Jerseys.

  14. On a related note, Peyton will be releasing a book which focuses on diet and training as well. It’s called “When You Get Caught Receiving Shipments of HGH, Just Blame Your Pregnant Wife” .

  15. If the book doesn’t include chemical names of Brazilian, Italian, and Chinese HGH it is useless.

  16. The cheater parrots are pathetic today.

    Waa waa we failed 5th grade science, waaa waaa mean ol’ Brady mean ol’ Patriots

  17. Brady is the best of all time because he’s extremely mentally tough.

    Feel free to denigrate what he’s accomplished, but be rest assured in the fact that he’s not paying a shred of attention to what you say.

  18. Can’t wait, learn how to be great, humble and work hard, I’m sure it will be a fine read…the haters will never read it for the simple reason that being able to read and comprehend will be a requisite.

  19. It’s a book designed to appeal to Pats fans. You don’t have to tell us it will be “heavily illustrated,” we already know.

  20. Can you Patriots haters help me out?My 18 year old son has questions only you can answer.
    What is a losing season?
    What does mathematically eliminated mean?
    What is a wildcard?
    What is a high draft pick?
    What is hoping to make the playoffs mean?
    Why do people have SB parties when their team didn’t make the SB?

    Thanks for all your expertise in answering these questions.

  21. He’ll describe in detail how he destroys his cell phones every 6 months with his lawyer sitting next to him. Just before getting out of his car to go up and be questioned on an investigation. Because, like, doesn’t everyone?

  22. Ted-
    Just so you know that Neurosafe quote attributed to Tom Brady is 100% trash. Read it and it’s not hard to figure out why.

    GREAT questions!! I don’t know the answers either. 🙂 Cmon Patriot Hater help us out!

  24. Dont be mad Patriot Hater 🙂 We don’t look down on you because we’re arrogant or anything like that. 🙂 Not at all!

    We look down on you because we really are better than you at everything. It really is that simple! It’s not personal. 🙂

    What… you want us to LIE and tell you something different?? I don’t think so cupcakes. We only preach facts and truth. Get used to it!

    Let’s hope the book comes with its own Crayons.


    That would be great! 🙂 I think I’ll color Brady’s rings with the radiant diamond color crayon and the Lombardis in sparkling gleaming silver.

    🙂

  26. Its on the shelf next to Bill’s book.” How I won 5 rings while losing just 2 first round picks. ” Its a sure bestseller.

  27. Pouting Perfected by Peyton had been written years ago,but never published.Why you ask?The publisher is a colts fan and like all colts fans he says “wait till next year”.

  28. I happen to think it’s so adorable seeing Patriot Hater talk about the GOAT, the 5 time World Champions- and fans of the World Champions – as much as they do. 🙂

    It’s like a whole bunch of puny weakling little mice discussing the grizzly bear next door!

    🙂

  29. Talk about King of the World. It ain’t fair. Universally recognized as the Greatest player of All Time, probably the best looking player of all time, most beloved player of all time, totally at peace with life, the highest character guy you could ever meet, and still piling it on at the top of his game.

  30. Poor jets fans.I’m sorry revis lost a step but you have to realze one thing…The weight of that SB ring slowed him down..the ring he won with the Patriots…our players are used to them..he just wasn’t prepared.

  31. If you buy this or the cookbook you’re a moron. And Tom Brady feeds on morons. The morons will be paying for his moat in Brookline.

  32. Do not stare at his rings and trophies,it’s worse than staring into the sun.I wonder if he interferes with sattelite reception..when he wears all them rings.

  33. Morons are those that love to hate him….but yet still watch him win SBs.They put their hopes on other teams to defeat him,because their favorite team cannot.Moronic hopes by people that have no sense.

    Actually that’s not the sun you are seeing. That’s the glow from Foxboro MA from those RADIANT, SHINY, LUMINOUS, GLEAMING, BEAMING, SPARKLING Lombardi trophies. 🙂

    While we’re on that topic I wonder which hand Brady wears his rings? I would think it’s his left. All that weight from all those diamonds might impact his right throwing hand. I think he should start getting his right hand used to them though cause he’ll be filling that one up too with more rings.

    🙂

  38. Lance Armstrong once wrote a book, explaining how he was able to accomplish his unbelievably great success.

  39. Now you want it in picture book form?It was already stated that it came with illustrations,with crayons and in audio form..come on ftomastic do not let them 4 years in kindergarten go to waste and apply yourself.You can do it.

  40. I’m a big Tom Brady fan, but I also find him to be kind of weird. Quite honestly, I’d rather read an autobiography by Edelman. He’s funny and his life story sounds a bit more interesting.

  41. Available next week:

    Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door: A Collection of Short Stories Describing the Misery of Patriot Trolls’ Over the Outcome of Super Bowl LI

  42. This just in, the title of the book has been changed to “The Whistleblower: How to succeed in the NFL and not feel guilty about it.”

  43. What Patriots fans know..
    Dynasty..
    SB champs..5x
    Homefield advantage
    Patriots fans in your hometown
    Playoffs
    This century..we own it
    Shiny trophies
    Sparkling rings
    Parades
    Making room for banners
    The people that make the rings,trophies and banners
    That your children want to be Patriots fans
    That your team isn’t worthy

    We know lots of stuff

  44. Yep, Patriots homers sure don’t know anything, they’re just a fan of winning. Soon enough they will jump on the next bandwagon of a winning team. Pretty much sums Mr Tee Hee


    Not sure what you’re babbling about but you didn’t answer the questions! It’s your area of expertise so help us out. We’re waiting!
    🙂

  45. Since Brady has a definite future in politics after he retires as a player, I’m sure that the book won’t offend anyone and will put him in a positive light.

  46. I love it when they say bandwagon fans.I have been a fan for 45 years and counting.Have the Patriots always been great..no…but unlike your team,they solved that problem.If you’re happy with losing, thats fine.We Patriots fans are used to winning(no one and done)and we have no need for hope.Your hopes of winning are shattered every year by The Patriots and you must “bandwagon” teams to try and beat them.I bet you have pulled for teams to beat the Patriots that you normally wouldn’t pull for…bandwagoneer.

  47. Meanwhile the Pats haters are reading their favorite book –

    “Par-ti-ci-pa-tion tro-phies we love them!”

    They need the hyphens to sound out words of more than one syllable

    That there is a big world out there beyond New England.

    There I helped you out but had to stop. I know the Tee Hee Fool’s head will explode when he/she reads that.

  50. Nobody should ever question Pat’s fans loyalty to their favorite team or athletes. Most, if not all of them have always been fans of the Tom and Bill, Lance Armstrong, Sammy Sosa, Mark Mcgwire, Eddie Guerrero, Marion Jones, Tonya Harding, Rosie Ruiz and other great athletes.

    that’s not even remotely what happened.

  53. Humility, class, respect, honesty, ethics. The opposite of the universally thumbed down, copy and paste king of this site. The one that thinks the steelers do no wrong, but the Pats do no right. Because the steelers can’t win. Pathetic.

  54. It’s hard to be humble when you’re better than everyone(ever notice when teams beat the Patriots they act like they won the SB)
    We would respect our peers,if we had them
    We are in a class all by ourselves(that all teams try to emulate)
    We play fair(we don’t complain about a formation and then do the same thing or hold every player to run out the clock or trip players or have rules changed because its unfair)
    I love being hated(it only means your team is still losing and it puts us in the same category as every dynasty/kingdom/and country that ever prospered)
    We are just superior,get used to it.
    We are on top of the food chain and some images may seem graphic,but we don’t care.Lets just have our predator and prey relationship….like destiny has meant for it to be.

  55. ‘soon to be a losing franchise’
    Dude, its been a winning franchise for 20+ years now..exactly how long does it have to be so its not a fluke?
    Pats are now one of the kings of the NFL. the only difference is Green Bay was 40 years ago, Steelers in the 79s/80s, 49rs in the 80s and the Boys in the 90’s
    Unlike those before them, they are owning 2 decades of dominance, with free agency, and with very few hall of famers–unlike say the 70-80s Steelers.
    Respect the excellence.
    It will continue without Brady. The Pats will not wander in the wilderness looking for a franchise QB like the Fins, 49rs or Denver.
    We already have him. Quietly learning…

    Never said the Steelers did or do everything right, but you maintain the Pat’s players, coaches, owner, and fans never do anything wrong…..big difference…..little fishy.

    Confidence and arrogance are separated by a very fine line. I think it’s arrogant to think the Cheetahs will continue to win once Tammy and Belicheat leave. You confidence in too many unknown factors so slow your roll junior you are coming off your great run. Don’t act like a spoil brat…has anybody had it better. Be thankful ….not arrogant, classless and greedy.

    So you haven’t connected the dots? You haven’t figured out that the 70’s & 80’s Steroid fans, I’m sorry Stealer fans, like yourself for, example are the reason pats fans are now slapping back.

    If you didn’t start nothin’ there wouldn’t be nothin’.

    I know REAL Steeler fans, you’re no Jack Kennedy

    And you have NO business talking about class.

  62. Brady also told Kraft”I’m the best decision this organization has ever made”5 rings later(possibly more),decades of contending for SBs and still playing at a superior level.I love the “if he was drafted by this team” rhetoric,when teams continue to reach for their “franchise QB”.Can you imagine how many SBs a player not drafted by the Patriots would have won???Lets say ed reed,revis,megatron,julio jones,palamaulo,list goes on and on.Earthwind Moreland has more SB wins that alot of non Patriots players,van noy,mcllelan ….see how your “ifs”work?

  63. Brady also told Damon Huard,on the plane ride home(after his 1st start) “This game is not that hard and I’m going to be one of the best”(paraphrasing).

  64. If anyone were to be releasing a cookbook shouldn’t it be the equipment guy that Tom called the ” deflator” for all the weight he’d lost? I’m sure a guy who between he and his wife gross $50 million spend a lot of time cooking for themselves.

  65. Who knows. With all this “chat” there could be trouble brewing with Tom & Gisele. This could play havoc on Tom’s head during game days. Potentially not a good situation.

  66. Man…. this post turned into a troll fest at warp speed. If anyone wants to actually talk about the book, I’ll be over there>>>

  67. The Key is BALLANCE
    For Brady that means wearing 3 rings on his right hand and 3 on his left. Number 6 will come this year. The team is stacked.

    —————————————————-

    I would give the credit to ongoing improvement in understanding sports nutrition and the nutrition field in general. Especially the researchers who take the applied knowledge and turn it into actionable items.

    But yeah Tom Brady has his nutritionist put together a $200 cook book to job people out of their money, so he should get all the credit.

    Was someone trying to force you or anyone to buy it?

    But perhaps you can enlighten us as to which NFL QB at 40 is more fit and has been more successful?

    IDK what your bathroom scale goes through but possibly you should give his cookbook a look?

    ====================

    Brady has always defers to the efforts of his teammates and coaches over the years. But there have been only 2 constants in this Pats run, Brady and Belichick. And Belichick is only 18-19 as Pats HC without Brady starting and BB frequently gets rid of talented players when they get expensive. Despite that, Belichick has kept Brady around. Some system, indeed.
