Are you looking for a gift idea for your favorite sports fan? There are a number of popular sports books that just might be exactly what that favorite football fan of yours would love to read.

Here are a few of our Super Bowl favorites:

“America’s Game: The Epic Story of How Pro Football Captured a Nation” by Michael MacCambridge

This is as thorough and definitive a re-telling of NFL history from the post-World War II era to the near-present as there is. The tale kicks off with the Rams’ move west to L.A. from Cleveland, delves into the AFL-NFL merger that ultimately launched the league into the sports stratosphere and ends around the time of Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” during halftime of Super Bowl XXXVIII. — Jim Reineking, NFL/breaking news editor

“Blood, Sweat and Chalk: The Ultimate Football Playbook” by Tim Layden

Gives a quick breakdown of history and invention of many of the formations and schemes we see in modern football with interviews from the people who were closest to the innovation and evolution. — Lorenzo Reyes, NFL reporter

“The Courting of Marcus Dupree” by Willie Morris

On its face, this is a story about high school football and college recruiting through the lens of Philadelphia, Mississippi, running back Marcus Dupree, one of the nation’s top prospects, and how football captivates the whole of the South. Morris uses the attention cast on Dupree and his hometown, where three civil rights activists were murdered in 1964, to assess the changing racial landscape of Mississippi from the 1960s to the 1980s. It’s about football and also very much not. — Paul Myerberg, college football reporter

“The GM: A Football Life, a Final Season, and a Last Laugh” by Tom Callahan

I’m a sucker for a good behind-the-scenes book, and this one certainly fits the bill. Callahan gets great access with former New York Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi over the course of a season to give readers a glimpse of what life is like as an NFL GM. (On a personal note: This was also one of the books that nudged me toward sports writing and away from a possible career in politics, for which I am eternally grateful.) — Tom Schad, sports reporter

“When Pride Still Mattered,” by David Maraniss

Vince Lombardi was a mythic figure to my friends and me when we were young. While certainly not a work of hero worshipping, this told the story of how he became the coach and man he was, how he was away from football and how he handled victories and defeats in sports and his personal life. — Tom O’Toole, football editor

Here are a few other football-themed sports books to consider:

“A Race Like No Other” by Liz Robbins
“Drunk on Sports” by Tim Cowlishaw
“Inside Edge” by Christine Brennan
“More Than Just a Game: Football v Aparthied” by Chuck Korr and Marvin Close
“Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer” by Warren St. John
“The Boys in the Boat” by Daniel James Brown
