If you need help with something, you can email the guys and they will actually write you back. I was having problems with interceptions so I wrote stephen gibbons (SGibs) and he wrote me back and even threw a bonus video guide of a new offensive play to use. (which works great). Basically, if you need some help with Madden 13 get this guidebook. Even if your a pro at madden, this is a excellent book to have open next to you while on the gridiron....oh yeah one other thing....24 hours till opening day in the NFL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Guidance on who the best gems are in the game was also very helpful as I don't know a lot of these sleeper guys from team i don't know well.
Sections for each individual team
Best plays in each team's playbook
Best plays in general
5 sets for success and 3 headed monster are great concepts that can be used for years to come
Great advice on audible setups
Some good schemes at the end
Excellent, personal customer support as you can see from the replies to comments from the actual authors
CCM and skill upgrades are missing as pointed out in another review. I'd have like to have seen that too
User specific skill coaching isn't really addressed much... tell me how to user rush the passer, or user catch better this would be great
Overall I think the amazon price of ~$13 makes this a great purchase. This book delivers tips and strategies it would take a solid five years to learn on your own playing and researching on the internet in concise well written guide.
Bottom Line: If you are new to Madden and want to get better, this is a great place to start.
5 sets for success breakdown for each team, easy to work into your own scheme
Good price point, considering what others are charging for their guides
Top 5 sections are a concise and informative way of presenting game play tips
Complete tournament strategy several plays from the Panthers playbook (with play breakdowns) (GO PANTHERS!)
Great base for beginners, but may not be suited for more advanced players
