Book Review: Football Nation

I got the chance to read Football Nation: Four Hundred Years of America's Game, and it was a very cool book.

There are many great pictures and stories in the book, which would make for a great coffee table book. It really shows the evolvement of the game from its inception, in both pro and college football.

It starts with its earliest mention in 20th century London, all the way to the behemoth that football is today in our society across all levels, from Pop Warner to the NFL. It comes from the Library of Congress, so the resources and research are unparalleled.

It is a book I would recommend for the football fan.
