This book ranks up there with Danyluk's book The Super 70s comprehensive treatise on football in that decade as a collection of essays and photos that examines the 1980s but not as dry timeline fashion but an era's top teams, players, and games."
It is not just full of stories about stars (one chapter is about Leon Bright) or triumphs (one chapter as about Chuck Muncie) which gives it more of a flavor of an era that was full of good things but stared down drug usage, PEDs, strikes, and other growing pains and emerged more popular than ever at the end of the decade.
This is an easy "recommend".
