A noteworthy review of Inside the NFL from Booklist on September 1, 2005
The Inside the NFL series focuses on the eight NFL divisions and their respective teams; this entry tackles the NFC North division, beginning with an introduction that briefly explains the origins of the division and presents its four teams. Subsequent chapters focus on the individual teams, describing the history of each and highlighting important statistics, star players, and fun facts (the Chicago Bears, for instance, originally were called the ‘Staleys’). Each chapter concludes with a look at the team’s present condition and prospects. The book is heavy on photographs-both vintage and contemporary-and the end matter includes an index, time line, and glossary. Overall, a fun introduction to the world of professional football.
