If you are a young coach trying to increase your knowledge base, an older coach who is trying to implement a more complex passing attack to the offense, or just someone who wants to learn about the modern passing game then you must get this book. You can utilize the content in the book two ways: 1) you can install the exact offense at your school, or 2) take the 9 concepts discussed and implement those into your offense using your own terminology. Either way it is a win-win. I believe a coach who has read through this book and The Bunch Attack by Coverdale and Robinson will be equipped with the knowledge to install a devastating passing attack.

this is a good book for people who are interested in learning about the west coast offense and the concepts behind them. This is a good source for any coordinator offensive or defensive to understand the passing game.

The author, Dan Gonzalez, deserves a Ph.D. in Offensive Football. When it comes to the passing game, and how to attack defenses, this book is a fantastic resource. Having said that, if you are not an experienced football player and/or coach, you may find this book to be a difficult read.

As with all football coaching books, you shouldn't expect to be able to take the book and implement all of its concepts directly into your offensive arsenal. The idea with these kind of resources it that you take a couple of ideas from the book that you can use to enhance teaching in your own program. In that respect, I highly recommend this book.

The book takes a complicated offensive scheme and does it's best to simplify it in a way that makes sense to the reader. The diagrams were extremely helpful and MOST were accurate. I will likely add this resource to the list of "repeat reads" that I use for the purposes of becoming a better coach.

Unfortunately, we reader's aren't in the classroom with Coach Gonzalez. The reader is left to sort it all out for himself. If you are a seasoned coach looking to install an offense, and are willing to put the time in to study and decipher this book, then it looks like a pretty good scheme. If you are a non-coach, looking to expand your knowledge of the inner workings and strategies of the game, this is a waste of time.

This book must be added to your library. The terminology is great and the author does a outstanding job of describing routes, reads, and concepts. Buy this book, read it, then read it again to fully understand it!

I agree that this book may take 2-3 reads. However, once you get the concept, it's really worthwhile. It can offer a lot of flexibility. Should you use this as your base offense? If you're at a small high school, you can take the concepts and apply them to your current system or take chunks of it.

Learned a lot from the book. Enjoyed the layout of the book and the diagrams. Definitely a book that could help a beginning coach or a vet.

Read it before you install your offense. Great insight on protection schemes. Use the R4 system with these concepts and you have a winner.

I found the concepts in this book to be very difficult to understand and nearly impossible to implement at a mid-small size high school. Very difficult concepts.
