This is an excellent book about the NFL. Very illustrative descriptions of the football stories and full of wonderfull pictures. I think it's a must for the real football lovers, especially for those who want to learn details of the most exciting moments of the history of this game.

The errors in this book are plentiful but would probably not be noticed by a casual fan or one who isn't interested in pro football history. You want examples? The photo caption on page 256 states that Roger Staubach was tackled by Dick Witcher of the 49ers. Witcher was a wide receiver who never played defense. Page 212 contains a section about the "1969 AFC divisional playoff game". 1969 was the final year of the AFL, which to many fans (including me) was superior to the NFL. Page 166 is about Ernie Nevers in the 1929 Thanksgiving game between the Chicago Cardinals and Chicago Bears. The photo caption states "...the game between the New York Giants and Chicago Cardinals on Thanksgiving Day 1929 at the Polo Grounds." There are other errors but those are the most obvious.

Another problem with this book is the lack of page numbers on photo-only pages. The editor saw nothing amiss about pages which contain a photo caption but no page number?

The accompanying DVD is a disappointment. Anything narrated by Bob Costas is worth watching. What I didn't like about it is the heavy emphasis on games within the past 20 years or so. The book is much more balanced historically. Almost any other NFL films production is more historically worth watching than this one. I recommend instead "Full color football: The history of the American Football League". It is scheduled to be released on DVD this year and episodes are sometimes shown on the NFL Network.

This book and the DVD would probably be most appreciated by casual fans who want to learn some pro football history. For those of us old codgers (56 and counting) who have been interested in that history for many years, it is worth watching if you can discount the many errors.

Now that's a magnificent "coffee table" book with great pictures and interesting stories on some of the most memorable moments in NFL history. Every time I flip through its pages I am reminded of why I am a huge football fan. And being a Giants fan myself, nothing makes me prouder than seeing the "helmet catch" portrayed right on the front cover. What moment could be greater than that Super Bowl? Sorry Pats fans, I had to say this, but believe me when I say that this book will also bring back nice memories from the New England team as well.

And the 50-minute or so DVD featuring Bob Costas and actual videos of some of the stories featured in the book is a great addition.

I bought this for my 14 year old football fan, and he has greatly enjoyed it. The book is full of pictures and stories which he very much enjoyed. It's a hard covered book with a nice dust jacket, and well worth the price.

The book would have been great had it not had curse words in the book! I bought this book for my 8 year old son, who loves football! I would not have purchased this book had I known that prior to ordering it.

Another reviewer noted the mistakes that are contained within the pages of this book. I don't know what the deal is but literally every football book I have (and there are a LOT) have got silly mistakes in them. Are these things never proof-read? Well this book is no different. The first one I caught was on page 17 which erroneously claimed that Super Bowl 30 between Dallas and Pittsburgh was a battle "to become the first team to win 5 Super Bowls." My team, the 49ers already achieved that the year before; they were the first to win 5. You would think most people in the football world know that, actually.
Being a Niner fan, I am going to sound partial to them naturally when I say that I was baffled their '98 playoff win over Green Bay was not in the "fantastic finishes" section of the book. I say this because it really should have been...much more so than the "snowplow game" for example which did get included. I'd think anyone outside of New England would agree with that assessment. The book has superb pictures though and overall was fun to go through.
