I'm not through the whole book yet, but I'm beginning to wonder if he even talked to one soul at the Patriots himself. Looks like he just used others' research and consolidated it into one place like a lame college paper.
Avoid and wait for a book by someone who has inside info or by Belichick himself.
I loved this book and although I read it for its information on all things managerial, (the author earned a PhD in economics at Stanford in performance work organization) I thoroughly enjoyed learning all about football. If one is interested in sports history and business sensibilities, this book is surely the best of both worlds! It is a great business gift.
