Great sports writing tells us about much more than sports, and such is the case with Nicholas Dawidoff’s superb new book about the hidden culture of the NFL. Embedded with the New York Jets and their colorful head coach, Rex Ryan, for a year, Dawidoff unveils the tensions, rewards, comedies, and tragedies experienced by NFL players and coaches but often out of view in a nation otherwise obsessed with professional football. Neither a booster nor a critic, Dawidoff relies on his immense talent as a writer, and his own humanity, to tell this fascinating story.
