This was a good overview of how the key owners in the early days of the NFL worked together to help lay the foundation for how pro football came to be the "American Game" While it does mention some about the key games and players, the real focus of this work is the interaction between the key owners, such as the Mara family, the Rooneys, etc. Additionally, much time is spent on the business interactions between the NFL and AFL during the 1960s, which proved critical in the foundation of the Super Bowl. A good fun read for die hard and casual fans alike
