This is without doubt one of the best and most insightful sports books I've ever read. The plays and schemes outlined here have played such an important part in the history of the college and professional game and reading where they came from and how they have developed over time has been a real eye opener. The interviews with the coaches and players involved are fascinating and allow the reader to really understand the intricacies of of each play or scheme.

Tim Layden writes so well and brings great depth and understanding to every facet of this book. I really was quite sad when I read the last page, I could have read it all over again.

Gives you a relatively cogent and interesting account of how the game and its various strategies developed. But it is a little long on the back stories.

This book gives fans a great insight, not only to the plays systems and formations that have shaped the modern game, but also to the men behind the innovations. If you've ever wanted to know the difference between the Wishbone and the West Coast offense, this is the book for you.
