AGAINST FOOTBALL One Fan's Reluctant Manifesto

by | Read by Peter Berkrot

Contemporary Culture • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

The author breaks down the reasons that the game he once truly loved watching is slipping away from him. Narrator Peter Berkrot shapes the book with an emotional tone that reflects the author's persuasive words. As Almond makes his best pitch to explain the problems in football--specifically, the promotion of violence and the long-term danger of traumatic brain injury--Berkrot conveys the author's dilemma between his passion for the gridiron and the need to have a national conversation about its issues. It's a tough sell, but through attentive narration Berkrot helps make Almond's case a worthy argument for serious fans to hear. M.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2015]
