My Obligatory Off-Season Book Post

A couple of years ago I made a post about my favorite books at that current time. It turned into an unexpected hit around here, and others have followed it up since then.

Since we are looking at the start of summer I thought we could get a jump on our summer reading lists, even though I am sure it will only be an appetizer to the main course. I am going to ask us all to post the one book you recommend to all of us BSDers.

My recommendation is "Blood, Sweat, and Chalk" by Tim Layden. It is a "technical" book about football schemes, but isn't bogged down in a foreign language. It is a "history" book that doesn't get worked up over the footnotes. That makes it easily accessible and can even serve to change your perceptions on the games offenses and defense, and possibly stimulate you to delve deeper into some other books. If you only read two books this summer and you would like to broaden your tactical, and historical knowledge of the game this is your book.

So there it is now the fun part: What is your recommendation?
