Five books about: the Super Bowl

From The Barnes & Noble Review -- one of five books about the Super Bowl:
The Catch: One Play, Two Dynasties, and the Game That Changed the NFL
by Gary Myers

The 1980s dynasty of the San Francisco 49ers was founded on one incredible catch (see the book cover at left) with 51 seconds left in a game against the Dallas Cowboys -- who experienced their own long reign of dominance put to a sudden end by the same play. Making this moment his keystone in a study of a changing game, Myers brings to light the long-term effects of the catch on players, teams, and the whole world of pro football.
Read about the other four books on the list.
