Ok, it borders on the condescending (as its title so subtly suggests) and you can tell it's mostly written by Holly Robinson Peete's "cowriter", and the references on almost every other page to Peete's husband, ex-quarterback Rodney Peete, get a little tiresome. But the book accomplished what it set out to, at least for me: a non-scary, non-threatening, yet moderately-paced walk through of the game. If you don't know anything about football and can get past some of the annoying personal referenc [...]

At times I wanted to be angry at the typical female stereotype this book is built on: While some women may be football fans, they simply don't grow up learning the intricacies of the game like men do, and many of them grow up learning next to nothing about the game. Overall, though, I found this a wonderfully accessible introduction to the intricacies of professional football.While I wanted to be offended at the assumption that women just don't know the details of football, I have to admit that [...]

A good primer for those who know nothing about football.Being a girl and a recent convert to actually attempting to UNDERSTAND one of America's favorite past times, I wanted a book that wouldn't boggle my brain, make my eyes go cross-eyed or leaving me scratching my head and feeling like, well, an idiot and the only person who can't understand the game of football.Chapter 1-5 outlines the offense and defensive teams and some technical elements--such as the regulations of the field, uniforms, sco [...]

This book changed my life! Three years ago, I said, verbatim - "I hate football and I will never like it. Mark my words." Now, I am a die-hard Cincinnati Bengals fan - I can't wait for the season to start, and I not only love watching the Bengals, I can sit down and watch almost any game of football, and not only understand, but enjoy it! Like many of us, I thought football was such a dumb, pointless game, but after reading this book, I see that it is (to paraphrase the author) "more like a ches [...]

Great resource for anyone new to the game. I learned so much info from this book, terminology, the psychology behind certain plays and decisions. For someone like me, who has tried to understand football for a few years, this book was a godsend. It breaks everything down, with many details, examples and metaphors to help you understand. Peete does all the legwork (including the history of ALL NFL teams) so you just get the nitty gritty. Her writing can be corny and at times, sexist. I do wish sh [...]

I'll start by saying that I grew up watching football with my Dad and brothers (my mom and sister just refused) so I could always, at least at a basic level, follow the game. Of course, I never played football, so I had a disadvantage in truly understanding the strategies that are utilized in this sport. That's why I purchased this book, to expand my understanding of the game of football.This book is a fabulous way to fill in the gaps when it comes to basic football knowledge. In fact, after rea [...]

Apparently I have made my disdain for football a little too clear, as my boss dropped this on my desk along with an order to watch the Patriots game this weekend.I'm two chapters in, and so far I've learned that the best way to become a football fan is to get bribed with ice cream by your father so you'll shut up during the game, and the best way to become a football expert is to marry a pro quarterback. Also, that Holly Robinson Peete needs a new ghostwriter, because neither of them are funny.I [...]

Unfortunately while checking this out the librarian was intrigued by the title, and I ended up pretending that I had a football fanatic boyfriend who roots for the Texans. "He's a lucky guy," the librarian (a Cowboys fan himself) said.Can't I want to learn more about the game for my own sake?A little too much of the author's personality shows through (I got tired of the requisite quarterback's wife jokes), but it's definitely informative for those who just want to throw themselves into the game.

This was actually pretty funny. It is great if you know absolutely nothing about football. If you do know alot about football then it is great because of the top 10 lists (top 10 running backs, Top 10 football movies etc)Also, I liked the breakdown of the divisions and some history of the teams.She has a really casual writing style, so it is an easy read.Again if you know the basics and wanted to learn more- this is not the book for you. Believe me, you will not be basing your fantasy football p [...]

Good explanation of NFL rules, and a nice mini-introduction to some of the plays. There is a lot of brief NFL history as well which didn't interest me as much. A good little primer though. SuperBowl 49 made way more sense than it would have had I not read this book. My husband (who is also new to football) genuinely asked me to get him a beer during said Super Bowl, and I responded appropriately!

If you have a significant other who loves football or are just a fan yourself this is a fun book to read. Not only does it give us the rules of football it gives us such guidelines as to what not to say to our partner during the big game and who has the best butt in the NFL (She did rank her husband's butt as #1 but can we really blame her). Peete brings a fun and educational insight to the game of football. A moust read for any women whos live is ruled by the NFL season!!!

I was hoping for more. I grew up watching football and know the basics of the game. I wanted to learn about specific defenses/offenses, at what time a running play should be called vs a passing play, and the specifics of those tricky rules such as when it is or isn't defensive pass interference. Unfortunately I didn't learn anything new but this did cover the basics well and I would recommend it for that purpose.

An introduction to American pro football, written for the complete novice.I read part of this book and ended up skimming the rest because I had to return it to the library. It's not the kind of book I was looking for -- the author has a pleasant, chatty style, talking both about the game and about her experiences as an NFL wife, but I'd have prefered more football and less author. But if a mix of facts and personality works for you, definitely check this book out.

So I got this book because my special friend is a football fanatic! I got tired of only being able to understand a touch down and field goal. He watches the games all the time whether I feel like tolerating it or not. In an effort to spend more time with him, I heard about this book and jumped on the opportunity. Seems easy to understand the way she breaks it down but then again, I haven't finished the book yetHopefully my knowledge of the game will increase and I'll impress my friend!

This book was not as funny as I expected it to be. It is a good resource for learning about the game of football, as played in the NFL. I knew most of the information in the first half of the book, but it did teach me more about the positions and some plays. And a lot about the history of the NFL and football as a whole.

Dog shit. It had one or two useful chapters and the rest was fluff. One chapter describes her TV room and American football watching routine. Another chapter is a transcribed conversation between her and some of her friends talking about their families and NFL husbands. You could get the same info in a fraction of the time basically anywhere else.

This is a bit outdated now in terms of some of the rules but gives an overview of the game of football in terms of rules, positions and strategy or ways to play the game. Not the best book I've ever read but has its usefulness.

This is a fabulous book for anyone wanting to really understand professional football, as explained by the wife of an NFL quarterback. I can't say enough about it; she covered every question I had come up with.

If you're an avid football fan and really understand the game (like I do), you'll probably find this book more irritating and redundant than entertaining.

I could not finish it for the same reasons stated by other reviewers. It really seemed to talk-down to women. I would rather read a "For Dummies' to learn the game.
