Reviews for Pro Football's Stars of the Offense
Booklist Reviews 2010 December #2
Rather than devoting each volume to an individual team and its history, the books in the Football-O-Rama series take a more holistic approach to the NFL's current powerhouse teams and players. While this won't help the books from becoming almost immediately dated like other pro sports books, it does make them stand apart in a crowded field (though fans of smaller-market teams may object to some of the choices). Skill-position superstars like Adrian Peterson and Andre Johnson pop up in Pro Football's Stars of the Offense, though again, attention to linemen such as Ryan Clady and Nick Mangold makes for a well-rounded look at the offensive side of the ball. Crisp, full-bleed action photos add some zing, and a glossary and list of further resources round out each offering. Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.
Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Spring
This series discusses great contemporary NFL players; Dream Teams highlights the Patriots, Steelers, Colts, and Saints. Text, including personal stats and brief athlete or team synopses, appears opposite plentiful action photos. Though the books are purely superficial, especially when it comes to the players' lives, they may engage fans of the teams and footballers being discussed. Reading list. Bib., glos., ind.
