Zfarls and Sgibs have created a very detailed and complete guide for Madden 13 players.
Chris
As a fairly new madden player, who plays almost exclusively online ranked matches, I have found this guide to be very helpful in improving my game.
PJ
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.

ZFarls and SGibs are the co authors of this guide, and thats all you need to know! Known for their "5 steps for success" these guys know everything there is to know about Madden 13. You want full color pics of playbooks? its in there. You want ways to improve in madden almost instantly? you got it! Every team is profiled with ways to break down offense and defense, it even has a section titled, "why your not winning in Madden" lol...guess what? it helped me out big time.
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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a great concise guide that includes many advanced madden techniques. It has tons of full color screen caps of before and after the pre snap adjustments.
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.

Pros:
Full color
Great explanations
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

Cons:
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.

I received my PrimaMadden Official Madden13 Strategy Guide today and it is AWESOME..

Written by Sgibs and Zfarls, 2 proven Madden Pros & EASPORTS GAMECHANGERS, the guide is informative, detailed and easy to understand..

It breaks down the 5 SETS FOR SUCCESS for every team in great detail, contains game improvement tips, developer tips about Connected Careers, offense, defense and Ultimate Team, gameplay tips and more!!

It also breaks down the top 5 players for all positions & the top 5 teams to help you win..

Next is a section on fantasy football, then comes the TEAM STRATEGY section, which details team strategies on offense and defense for every team.

Also included is the PLAYBOOK GUIDE, breaking down playbooks and the 5 SETS FOR SUCCESS..

The final section includes a behind-the-scenes look at EA SPORTS Tournaments, the Madden Bowl, the Virgin Gaming EA Sports Challenge, Madden Community Days & more!

Overall this guide is very well written and will help anyone from a first time madden player to a seasoned veteran improve their Madden13 gameplay by leaps and bounds..

I highly recommend purchasing this guide and be sure to watch the authors internet madden show, THE WEEK IN MADDEN (TWIM) starting next week on their USTREAM CHANNEL, MaddenBible.

I just added this short youtube video of the authors TWIM Trailer 2012 Highlights.. Show is GREAT!!

I'm 47 years old and disabled. I love football so I bought Madden 13. When I went online, I got beat down pretty bad. I really don't have hours and hours to train and know all the ins and outs of the game. Then, I found this guide and within a few hours, my game improved! Basically, these guys put in the time so you don't have to! You can stay stride for stride with the elite with this guide and all of the strategies that the pro's of Madden use, explained and clearly taught in this guide. A MUST HAVE for any Madden gamer!Now I play with pride and confidence.

As a fairly new madden player, who plays almost exclusively online ranked matches, I have found this guide to be very helpful in improving my game. Would it be nice to have a most in depth section based on the connected career mode? Maybe. But this guide is ultimately meant to give you a base set of skills and plays to help you build off of. Obviously, to ascend to the rank of madden god you will have to learn concepts and strategies beyond the range of this guide. But on the whole it's a great start.

Bottom Line: If you are new to Madden and want to get better, this is a great place to start.

Pros
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!)

Cons
Great base for beginners, but may not be suited for more advanced players
