Off Season Reading List/Book Club?
I thought this might be a fun thread to help pass the time till September and take/offer any suggestions on good reading options for the spring and Summer.
I'm currently reading The Perfect Pass, I've always heard this was a great book and wanted to learn more about the advent of the Air Raid and with our new coaching staff coming in now felt like the perfect time.
It's a really informative and easy read. I really can't wait to see how these philosophies taken hold within our system. I doubt we go full Mike Leach but the whole mentality of "passing to win" resonates throughout the book and I'm anxious to see it manifest itself between the hedges this fall. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Would love any additional suggestions or thoughts if you have read this book. A few other's I've really enjoyed recently:
Shoe Dog- Phil Knight's Biography- I think the best part is the whole book is about his struggle to start Nike and it ends right when he "makes it"
Homicide- This is the pre-cursor to the NBC show from the late 90's of the same name written by the writers of HBO's the Wire. Follows Baltimore Homicide cops for a year. Long but well worth it.
Power House- The Book about the CAA Agency- Really great look at how the Founders of CAA bootstrapped their way up from TV agents to the largest agency in the world today.
