it was amazing

I didn't know anything about American Football, so the fact that this book kept me reading til the end is a tremendous achievement. Whilst there are sections that comprise lists and results, the bulk of the book is made up of the human story behind the rise of the Cleveland Browns in this alternate history, the interplay of personalities and amusing sketches in an alternate history media. There are some very nice touches in events that we all know being subtly changed by the butterflies of history, things which are mentioned by-the-by and not dwelt on as they are tangential to the story.

Before reading the story I had a vague idea there was a city called Cleveland. After reading it, I am convinced that the Cleveland Browns are the greatest American football team of modern history...modern alternate history, that should be!
