This is a text for American football coaches of all standards. It aims to improve offences and plays by using an easy to follow format. It features offences and plays that can be adapted to any team or situation. The authors are coaches (AFCA) who have either developed the offences themselves or work with the teams that use them best. It is something of interest and use for every coach who has a role in offence.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Since its establishment in 1922, the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) has provided a forum for the discussion and study of all matters pertaining to American football and coaching. It also works to maintain the highest possible standards in football and the coaching profession. The AFCA now has more than 10,000 members, including coaches from Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan. The association promotes safety in the sport and establishes strong ethical and moral codes that govern all aspects of football coaching.

You will NOT find that information in this book. Much like the inaccurately named "Football's Best Offensive Playbook" (ISBN: 0-87322-574-0) this book is a confusing mishmash of individual plays and complex ideas. An inexperienced youth coach trying to use this book would be hopelessly lost and end up with a playbook that looks like it came from Madden.
Almost no effort is devoted in this book to the concept of series-based football and the idea of making as many plays in the offense look as similar as possible in order to fool the defense into overpursuit. All of the plays shown are drawn against a 4-3 defense, a defensive system almost NEVER used below the high school level.
I also agree with the previous reviewer that the book should have included something about the West Coast Offense. Although the system is completely unsuitable for the youth levels, it has some application in it's passing attack, and with its widespread use (29 of 32 NFL teams currently run it in some form) coaches are bound to want to incorporate it. Its lack of inclusion means that the book is not comprehensive.
If you are an experienced coach looking to expand your system, you will probably find a few tips and tricks here. If you are a beginner, or are coaching at the youth levels, I strongly recommend "The Wing-T from A-Z" series by Dennis Creehan (ISBN: 1-57167-426 and 1-58518-250-8), "Winning Single Wing Football" by Ken Kueffel ,the SWinger's Bible, (ISBN:0-9744022-4-9) and "Coaching the Single Wing Offense" by Jim Ahern (ISBN: 1-58518-912-X).
If you are interested in the pass-first attack of the West Coast Offense and the Spread (And I hope you're not at the youth level where these offenses are inordinately difficult to install and use), then I recommend "Football's West Coast Offense" by Henderson and Olsen (ISBN:0-88011-662-5) and "Coaching Football's Spread Offense" by Stowers and Butzer (ISBN: 1-58518-198-6).
Above all, I recommend, "The Toss: A New Offensive Attack for High Scoring Football" by Jerry Vallotton, which is available only through his website now. Web searches will lead you to him easily. (Amazon sells the book, but it's currently out of print and several hundred dollars. It's much cheaper through the author.)
I do not particularly recommend this book.
