Yes.  It's awesome.

Covers the whole Nebraska offense from the Osborne days from an O-Line perspective.

I'll post the table of contents later today, unless I forget.

Is she in a book club?  Join it and see if they'll do The Assembly Line.

Probably a futile effort but, if you use a Kindle or ipad to read e-books, click on the link to request that the publisher make "The Assembly Line" available in electronic format.  Some publisher out there probably thinks there's a (very small) cult movement going on since I do that pretty much every time I'm on Amazon!!!

Milts book is great!  I am getting through it slowly and will reread it afterwords as well. Ranks right up there with many of the "offensive guru's" books.   ;)

I'm not sure on the legality of this, but since it's out of publication, and the author or the publisher are no longer receiving revenue from the purchase, could I scan it and re-print it and give it away?  Or maybe give it away as a gift with the purchase (at a discounted price) of one of my DVD's?

Let me know what you all think.
Thanks,
