About the Book
Football Then to WOW! takes kids through how football basics, players, strategy and fan experiences have evolved over the last 110 years. In bookstores in time for the start of the 2014 NFL season, readers will see how football grew from beefy leatherheads to jaw-dropping athletes, offenses that rarely passed to high-scoring machines, and players working for peanuts to showmen earning millions. Football Then to WOW! is filled with trivia, key events in football history over the last century, changes in strategic offensive and defensive systems, advancements in technology, and the growth in record-breaking single-season marks. Football Then to WOW! is the comprehensive guide to the history of football for young sports fans and readers.

My Take on the Book
If you enjoy sport history, this book will be one you will want to read. It shows the changes in the equipment used in playing football, the differences in the rules today, the venues, and how the stats are used. The book contains many illustrations and photographs. One was the evolution of the shoulder pads which I found quite interesting . Of course it details the huge discrepancy in the salaries of years ago and today. You will be amazed at the salaries in the 1940's.

So much information for the reader who loves football. This could be an excellent gift for a football fan in your family.
