Five books: the Super Bowl

From The Barnes & Noble Review -- one of five books about the Super Bowl:
The Billion-Dollar Game
by Allen St. John

Allen St. John went backstage and spent twelve months living inside the intense, unique world of Super Bowl preparations: the highly complex orchestration of television coverage; the hosting-committee logistics worthy of a military campaign; ticket distribution; stadium construction; and, oh yes, the celebrities. St. John digs into it all, and in the process suggests that the business of the big game contains as many fascinations as the contest on the gridiron itself.
Read about another book on the list.
