Mr. Lavin does not delve into "macho-jock" rhetoric; but instead, offers the reader with helpful quantitative and qualitative analysis on organizational behavior.
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.
