I then started reading the recaps of the games, personnel, and season. The prose itself is take-it-or-leave-it, but certainly decent enough (much better than I can write). But the glaring factual errors in a book about sports is frankly inexcusable.
A highlight on Page 8 about Superbowl XLV says " The number of catches wide receiver Jordy Nelson made in the game, including a 38-yard touchdown." Nelson caught a pass for 38 yards and a 29-yard touchdown in XLV, but not a 38-yard touchdown.
After a nice full-page pic of your Superbowl XLV MVP Rodgers (with Harrison coming at him) on page 9, page 10 includes "Running back James Starks, a seventh-round draft pick...". Sorry, but he was a sixth rounder. From there, I haven't gotten any further in my reading, instead spending more time doing the editor's job (and writing this review!).
The book's photos alone are certainly worth the purchase and I'm happy my wife got it for me. But these factual errors detract dramatically from the content. I'll feed the fire by mentioning the publisher's address given in the front matter of the book is Chicago. Just sayin'.
