Fascinating Book!!

The QB: The Making of Modern Quarterbacks by Bruce Feldman, was a great book.  Initially I thought this was a book about some of the current NFL quarterbacks.  However, while Feldman discusses many quarterbacks, the purpose of the book is to discover 'how a quarterback is created.' 

With that in mind, Feldman went on a discovery process to learn about the process.  He met with former NFL quarterback and ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer and began a process of intense learning.  He came away amazed at Dilfer's knowledge and ability to spot the good and not so good in quarterbacks.  Ultimately this was a book which revealed the process young athletes go through to become an elite quarterback.

Feldman learned about the Elite 11 Camp for the best of the best high school quarterbacks, the processes they go through, the personal coaches they utilize and how talent is defined.  

In the end, if you are into football, the behind the scenes aspect, I highly recommend The QB: The Making of Modern Quarterbacks.  This is really a fascinating look at what happens behind the scenes for the elite quarterbacks, and the people who train them and their programs as well.

I received a review copy of this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review.
