It would be horrible to have people who don't like football because of its apparent violence have a negative affect on the game. However.....there is another issue.....concussions......that may very well be the death knell of the sport. People may die as a result and if they do the game will over.
I loved this book because it spoke to American lessons, values, and history and used football to do it. I think folks who are sports fanatics will appreciate it because of the not-so-widely-known facts and details Flynn presents. I think folks who aren't fanatics will also appreciate it because it's in plain English and tells an excellent story that can be understood without getting inundated with football stats. Best of all, it’s about more than football.
Flynn did an impressive job telling the story of America’s game and shedding light on the dangers of misinformation and ill-informed (or even intentionally misleading?) media and academic proclamation. He clearly conducted extensive research to make this book what is essentially an exposé on the industry that profits from the football industry. It’s a fun, quick, and informative read for all audiences.
"concussion doctors push “science” that benefits their hidden business interests "
Does anyone really think that doctors are hyping up football injuries for money? Flynn fails miserably to convince readers of this assertion. If doctors were in it for cash, they would want football injuries to continue wouldn't they? Read this book if you want a good laugh at some bitter conservative's conspiracy hypothesis.
