Just about all your common route combinations are in here, broken down into what specific concepts work against each type of coverage you might expect to see (Zero, Cover 1, 2-man, Cover 2, Cover 3 (sky, cloud), quarters, etc.). There is good info on the strengths and weaknesses of each coverage concept and what plays or general concepts are best for exploiting those weaknesses. Then this provides detailed schematics of how each play works to exploit that coverage, what reads and checks are handy, and what tags can be thrown in for variety on the front or back side (or with backs).
For coaches wanting a more sophisticated passing game (from spread or traditional sets) or fans who just like to learn more about football - this is a very detailed resource and highly recommended.
Note: this is really not for casual fans who don't understand basic football concepts yet. If you know what "11" personnel means, what a smash concept is, or can draw up the basics of a cover 3 - read this sucker (multiple times) and learn more. If you don't and aren't willing to give this book the time it deserves, probably start with something more basic and work up to this later.
