The Last Headbangers by Kevin Cook - if you like football, if you're old enough to remember the golden age of 1970s football this one is indispensible

Re: Book(s) Recommendations

Scouts Honor by Charley Rosen is a good one, for anyone looking for a new novel to dig into. Flows nicely and is a fun read for a basketball junkie.

Dirty Wars by Jeremy Scahill. In depth analysis of the US War On Terror and how it has evolved from the Bush administration and in some cases, escalated, under the Obama administration.
