Offensive Playbook
by Dwight Dee Hawkes
I highly recommend this book for both offensive and defensive coaches. Dee Hawkes has persuaded many coaches of note to talk about the things they have always kept a closely guarded secret: the ins-and-outs of their favorite offensive plays. Detailed descriptions and diagrams accompany each play.  Fans of the game will find this book interesting and educational as they seek to understand more about offensive play and techniques. At least an intermediary knowledge of football is suggested for non-coaches.
