The QB: The Making of Modern Quarterbacks

Football is more than just a sport, it is an industry with the quarterback being the must crucial of positions.  It is not surprising that the science and art of quarterbacking has evolved as the sport has evolved, and this book takes the reader into the the world of developing elite quarterbacks.

I had a hard time getting through this book.  The writing bounces between what transpires at the Elite 11 camp and what has happened in the NFL and NCAA with certain quarterbacks.  It was not a seamless transition and made it hard to follow.

The premise is interesting.  I had not thought about the rise of the modern quarterback and how the position has evolved in recent years.  I learned a few things about professional analysis of the sport of football and baseball as well as how rating quarterbacks is not an exact science.  However, it took a lot of reading through uninteresting backstory to get to the good parts of the book.  Overall the book was hard to follow.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.  For more information on the author, go here.
