The QB: The Making of Modern Quarterbacks by Bruce Feldman

This is not a How-To book that teaches you how to be a modern quaterback.

This is a behind-the-scenes look at how quarterbacks are primed, honed, and raised. (It's also a little peek into has-been quaterbacks remaining relevant to the next generation)

Feldman has a lot of information that he throws at you.

The beginning was very boring to me. He takes us to Columbus, Ohio where a few young QBs and trainers have gathered to discuss the next steps in their careers and who's going to mentor whom.

That part was very boring.

Then we get snippets of inside information about how QB gurus select "the next big thing". Wondered what they thought of Johnny Football? How about Wilson?

At the end of this book, you'll basically get a look at the difference between QBs from years ago to the QBs of this era (and maybe what's to be expected in the future).

This would be a great book for any football fanatic. But the average fan might not quite dive in enthusiastically.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Crown Publishing.
