Synopsis:  Football is big business.  With so much money on the line, companies are working overtime to protect players and enhance the game.  This title covers high-tech innovations that are current or forthcoming in the game of football, including sensors in helmets, a mini-chip you can swallow to check your internal body temperature, and improved astro-turf.

Review:  Sports are not my thing, but when I picked up this book, I couldn’t put it down.  The wide variety of information presented means it is a great browsing book, but it could also be used for book reports.  This book could lend itself to projects on sports injuries and concussions.  It has fairly small type, so the 48 pages have a lot of information and very informative illustrations. We have the complete series for different sports, and this is a go-to title for me when kids are interested in sports.
