Title: The League: How Five Rivals Created the NFL and Launched a Sports Empire
Author: John Eisenberg
Thoughts: My job (sports) and one of my hobbies (reading) and one of my passions (history) combined here for a great listen! If you’re an NFL fan, I highly recommend this listen. The NFL at its beginning was not the behemoth we see today, and the fact that it became the dominant league in the United States becomes even more incredible when you learn just how tenuous the first few years—and decades—were for the league and its founders. This is definitely more of a listen for a niche audience, and if the nerdy beginnings of football aren’t your thing…you can probably skip this one.
