Good Book on the History of Football

Hello again Historum. It has been awhile. Unfortunately work has been hell and other issues have been coming up.

But, one of my New Years resolutions is to start reading a new history book. I'm interested in learning more about the history of football....American football that is (gridiron). I'm looking for a comprehensive history and I would suspect any comprehensive history would touch on the origins and would have a lot of cross-over with association football (and rugby). Any good recommendations?
