War Room: The Legacy of Bill Belichick and the Art of Building the Perfect Team
Football games aren’t won on Sundays in the fall. They’re won on draft day in the spring— in the war room.80% (7)
In this landmark book, New York Times bestselling author Michael Holley takes readers behind the scenes of three contending National Football League teams and into the brilliant minds of Bill Belichick and his two former protEgEs Thomas Dimitroff and Scott Pioli.
Holley masterfully shows how a single idea conceived by Belichick in 1991—how to build the perfect team—triggered a journey filled with miraculous finishes, heartbreaking losses, broken relationships, and Super Bowl championships. Readers are given unprecedented access—from the draft room to the locker room to the sidelines—and insights into why Belichick is considered to be the NFL’s best coach and premier strategist.
Before he achieved success, though, Belichick was barely surviving as a coach. War Room opens in Cleveland, where Belichick, a young head coach, worked in an office with two employees in their late twenties: Pioli, a low-paid scouting assistant, and Dimitroff, a groundskeeper and part-time scout. After Belichick was fired by the Browns in 1996, the three men were in separate cities and seemingly a lifetime away from being recognized as leaders and champions. But soon they were reunited in New England, where they refined and burnished Belichick’s method for constructing a winning team, overseeing one of the greatest franchises in modern NFL history.
These three master strategists are now competitors. Belichick continues at the helm of the New England Patriots, while Pioli is now in charge of the Kansas City Chiefs and Dimitroff is running the Atlanta Falcons. And even though they no longer work for the same franchise, they do have a common goal: building the perfect team, one draft pick and one trade at a time.
War Room is their unique and often astonishing story. It is packed with never-been-told anecdotes and new observations from team officials, players, coaches, and scouts, all leading to surprising and groundbreaking insights into the art of building a champion.
On the left side of the picture: Wroclaw Opera House The beautiful classic building of Wroclaw Opera has been pride of the city since 1841. The company is undergoing a vital renaissance. Recently renovated, this complex is now one of the most stunning opera houses in this part of Europe.

These creative performances with their monumental decorations and special effects, engage hundreds of artists and attract tourists and opera fans to Wroclaw from all around the world. ................................................................................................................................................................. In the middle of the picture: Monopol Hotel in Wroclaw at Helena Modrzejewska street was built in 1892 in Art Nouveau in place of church's graveyard (in 1817 transformed into the arrest, and later in 1852 moved to Podwale). Square left by the arrest was bought near end of 19th century for 600 000 marks by Wroclaw's Jews - banker Wallenberg Pachala and architect Karl Grosser.; they have built here trade house and hotel in which were 69 rooms, including 21 single occupation rooms, 46 double occupation and 2 apartments. Room size ran from 10 to 36 square metres (110 to 390 sq ft) and according to 19th century standards were luxurious. The trade house was located at the corner of Swidnicka and Modrzejewskiej street (formerly Agnes Sorma Stra?e). During the last months of World War II the trade house was significantly damaged so that it was rebuilt only in 1961 and became an exclusive cafe "Monopol". At the end of the 20th century it was closed and commercial functions were restored in the building. The hotel building survived the war without significant damage and hosted the World Congress of Intellectuals during the Exhibition of the Recovered Territories in 1948 with guests such as Pablo Picasso, Irene Joliot-Curie, Ilya Ehrenburg and Mikhail Sholokhov. In 1984 was entered into register of monuments. Today Monopol Hotel has two restaurants, spa and wellness club and organizes conferences and banquets.The Baths of Caracalla, Rome
Among Rome's most beautiful and luxurious baths, designed to accommodate about 1,600 bathers, the Baths of Caracalla continued in use until the 6th century. The extant ruins, together with modern excavations and restorations (including conspicuous reconstructions), are the most extensive of any surviving Roman bathing establishments and consist centrally of a block of large vaulted bath chambers covering an area of 750 by 380 feet (230 by 115 metres), with courts and auxiliary rooms, surrounded by a garden with space used for exercise and games. There were three main bath chambers: the frigidarium, or cold room; the caldarium, or hot room; and the tepidarium, or lukewarm room. Between the frigidarium and the tepidarium was the great hall, roofed by an enormous vault with clerestory windows, a prototype of the vaulted naves of medieval churches. There were also large open-air swimming pools. Marble was used lavishly, and sculpture, mosaics, frescoes, and other decorations ornamented the interior. These magnificent baths have continued to influence architects through the centuries. In the Renaissance, Donato Bramante and Andrea Palladio used them as inspiration for grand structures. And in the 20th century the architectural firm McKim, Mead & White incorporated elements from the baths—especially from the ceilings—into their design of the first Pennsylvania Station in New York City (built 1910, demolished 1964). The Baths of Caracalla are now the site of summertime open-air performances of ballet and opera, including works that employ spectacularly large casts, such as Giuseppe Verdi's Aida and Georges Bizet's Carmen.
