This a good primer. Presents lots of basic information.

HOWEVER, it really does need more "X"s and "O"s when setting out the descriptions of the locations of the players, but especially when describing offensive and defensive formations. The "X"s and "O" would clarify the description.

wanted to keep up with the "boys" at the TV games, tired of just fixing treats for the games...never was a footbal fan but wanted to learn the ropes...F for F explains but doesn't "dumb it down" for us "simple little females".

Need a primer on football - or at least want to begin learning the game? This book does that, with all the definitions for the game that you need to know about. The author, Teresa Saucedo-Artino, wrote this book for all the females who have spouses, significant others, family members or friends, who are football fans, and they themselves know nothing about it. Saucedo-Artino is married with three boys of her own and her book is filled with information on the sport for beginners who need the basics.

The book is broken into 15 chapters that go into all the specifics of football: Talk the Talk, Walk the Walk; Game Overview; Warm It Up; Da Points; The Opportunities; The Keepers; Broken Rules and Punishments; It's Play Time; Let the Games Begin; The Herd (Types of Teams); The Flock (Offense); The Swarming Bees (Defense); Suicide Missions (Special Teams); The Flocking Volley (Offensive Strategies); and The Swarming Bee Militia (Defensive Strategies). The Appendix has a humorous illustrative view of all the major calls.

If you know nothing of the game, read this from first page to last, and you'll have an understanding of what the game is about, and what all the hand signals, calls, and plays. You'll understand the scoring system of the game and who are all the official in the game (referee, umpire, head linesman, field judge, side judge, line judge, and back judge). For those that know something about the game, then the offensive strategies and defensive strategies chapters are both good reads.

This was provided by the publisher, and any opinions are my own.

Excellent information! What annoys me is the "cutesy" language. I was expecting a straight-forward textbook like approach, which to a degree it is. Just stop with the dim-wit female asides.
