Great read and well presented.Great coffee table read NFL100 is a good choice for your coffee table Sure, you can impress guests with a book showing works of Michelangelo but how many people are actually going to pick it up Gorgeous photographs and well written snippets focusing on the players who ve made football America s most popular sport make for an engaging read.I read it cover to cover but it really can be picked up on any page and enjoyed There is sort of a hero worship mentality around players who are made to seem larger than life, but this is a publication to celebrate the NFL s hundred year anniversary Cutting remarks about the game s greats would hardly be appropriate.Similarly, there is no discussion of head injuries or CTE But if you expect the kind of words used at a birthday party to praise the honoree then you won t be disappointed in this narrative of the NFL s increasing presence at the center of American culture.Tasteful, uncontroversial and focused on the players who have made the game great A light work but a worthwhile addition to all sports fans libraries. If you simplify the review this is an easy 5 star book and truly does an excellent job covering the first 100 years of the NFL.Condensing 100 years into 286 pages of content is no easy task and nearly impossible to cover all the bases.At its essence this coffee table has an excellent intro by Peyton Manning and Michael MacCambridge does an excellent job arranging stories from excerpts from books, magazines, newspapers, and interviews of men who have shaped the NFL.For NFL history buffs you will notice work from Peter King, Frank DeFord, Myron Cope, Edwin Pope, and Roy Blount Jr amongst others.Design wise the arrangement of photos, the use of imagery with quotes lead to an elegant design of simplicity at its finest Very clean and appealing to the eyes By far it s strength.I knocked it to a 4 based on some glaring omissions.With a compilation like this missing essays and profiles on The Fearsome Foursome, Ronnie Lott, Reggie White, Aaron Donald, Saquon Barkley was disappointing especially when you see profiles of Eli Manning, Matt Ryan, Patrick Mahomes, and Terrell Suggs.Overall though it isn t enough to make less than a 4 out of 5.This would be a great addition to any library, gift for any football fan in your life.
