Has anyone read this book? I have just finished it for the second time and really recommend it. It explores social morales of Odessa, Texas and covers in depth the aura behind permian football. It is the mistifying way, that H. G. Bissingger goes into great painstaking detail to describe the 88 team, that really captures your imagination and attention and grapples it as the american people hold dear to football. Read this book! great literature value!
