Tim Green's audiobook is hampered only in that as of this date one can only download it as an "audio 2" format--so the sound is very early radio.
So said, this book is by a man who was always reading through his career in sports. Other althetes would soothe themselves in whatever way they could during offtine--Mr. Green took jokes for it as a multi-year defensive linmeman for the Atlanta Falcons in the 1990s.
Mr. Green's established a football career and at the same time was going to law school--so his reading of his own work is highly credible as a presumption.
I'm a lawyer and a 35-year NFL addict (Jets fan-so I must be addicted)--and this book could not have been better. Insights into things as cool as why it's not that great to win in the playoffs to none of the nonof the guys wear cups to what they really yell, miked and unmiked, during the game, to how much of the game is really segregated.
I would put this in a class with the new book about Belichick by Halberstram--though, personally, I found this I found this more persuasive and entertaining. Check out samples on that for personal taste. Moneyball and the Phil Jackson and Lombardi books are this good. I'm waiting for audible.com to acquire "Juiced."
Oh--the Faye Resnick book is niot to go unmentioned--truly an experience--one of the best on audible, period, for its relation to sports and pure blindness and vanity.

Too generic not in depth. Who really cares about all of the problems in the NFL. Most of the players are a bunch of children in mens bodies. Overpaid whiners.
