Demian's Thoughts: I know even less about football than I do about baseball, so this book mostly went over my head. From what I could tell, it should be interesting to readers who understand football, since the book's discussions of strategy are fairly in-depth, and the choices look like they really require some thought. As in the previous book, though, the writing isn't great, and this may put some people off; the characters are colorful, but in a rather tacky way, and the "surprise ending" is far too random to be satisfying or even particularly interesting.
