5.0 étoiles sur 5 #1 book for learning football from SCRATCH. Howie breaks it down like a pro! 29 mars 2012
Par D. C. Obraztsov - Publié sur
I am actually a die-hard football fan, and was trying to find a great way to teach my best friend football, who wanted to impress a potential love interest who was football-obsessed himself. Since it was the off-season, I wanted to find other ways to teach just besides footage. So I did a LOT of research of all the best learning football books out there. And I will tell you this: YOU NEED A BOOK. There is no website on the internet that is even close to being as detailed in effective as breaking down the game as this book is.

This book is way better than its competitor, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Football (2nd Edition). I think the author organizes the book is a more reader-friendly way, and just has a knack of explaining things better. In The Complete Idiot's Guide, things are a bit more confusing and it does not go into as much detail. Plus, the author of this book is awesome - Howie Long!

This book covers NFL, college football, and even some high school. It's pretty thorough. Not only does it talk about the basics of football and how each position is successfully played, it gives you a history of football and introduces you to some of the most famous players ever (great way to not look like a dummy!) You'll learn all about the different officials, how managers, coaches, and other important people play their role, college/youth/high school football, a chapter specifically dedicated to the NFL, fantasy leagues, the mental aspects of the game, and conditioning and dieting. The last two chapters are about the ten best players in history (according to Long) and the the best ten teams. There's also a chapter about the most heated college football rivalries as well, if that interests you.

This is basically the bible of football. And you know how these lines of books have some snippets in the corner of a lot of pages, with some kind of story or useful tip, but its usually pretty boring? Not here! Howie Long, eight-time Pro Bowl Defensive End, has some very, very interesting stories to share and gives a lot of insightful information into the world of football. He weaves his own experiences throughout the book, but doesn't overdo it. He doesn't pretend to be a quarterback expert, but is very confident when it comes time to discuss defensive ends.

The book also has a long "football speak" section at the back, which is a very useful and nifty reference. This book is great because of the depth it goes into. No shortcuts or cheating here. At times it is information overload and you may need to take time and step back to absorb it all. It's not really a book for dummies. You have to really try to understand. The very basic fundamentals of football are easy enough to grasp, but learning about all of the different plays and line-ups and strategies is a whole different story. However, the book does an amazing job of incorporating graphs into the book to make it much easier to learn. But but don't be frustrated if it's not as simple as you'd thought it would be!

This book is definitely priceless if you are trying to learn football from scratch. There is no internet website that even pales in comparison. Get this book if you are serious about learning some football!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 If you know nothing-DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK 29 juin 2012
Par yunique - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Don't get me wrong... I love football. I bought this book because I want to know MORE about the game. Perhaps the reason I hated this book is because I bought it on my Kindle. Flipping around is difficult on a Kindle. If you read from page one on, you will see that Howie doesn't start from the basics, meaning the positions of the players. He explains the game referencing players positions. If you don't know the positions, it's impossible to follow. It's not that entertaining either. It's a bit dry. Don't waste your money. Try Football 101 if you want to start from the basics, it costs 99 cents. From there move up to this book but I must warn you, Dummies need to steer clear of this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent Introduction 30 avril 2012
Par Edward J. Barton - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Those of you who know me may wonder why, after spending so much time around the sport, why I woud ever read this book. Well, it's always good to be a Dummy. Football for Dummies is a fairly decent book - covering everything from what is the NFL to what is a 4-3 Under defense. It is probably a bit much for the complete novice to the game - especially the meaty portions of the Offense and Defense sections. However, someone with a rudimentary knowledge of the game, who may have watched a few on TV or in person, or a parent who has a kid just starting to play will find the content useful.

Even for someone around the game for the better part of 30 years, the book provided interesting insights from Howie Long on what plays are susceptable to a Cover 4 defense and some of the variations on the 4-3 front and their strengths and weaknesses. As with most Dummies books, the style is light and easy to digest, and you certainly will learn something.

So, it may have been a bit rudimentary for the experienced viewer, coach, player or fan, but it is a pretty useful book nevertheless.

Purchased this book as a woman who wanted to learn more about football so I could better understand and enjoy what I am watching. I was not disappointed! Great, straightforward explanation. I appreciated that the information was given in a manner that allowed me to determine the depth to which I wanted to delve. Though I am certainly no expert, I definitely getting
More out of watching the game.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book 14 juin 2013
Par Jess Castillo - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Though I found this to be very detailed, It presented the game in a uniformed manner and slowly progressed one through the basics of the game and gave you extensive information. It also allowed you to take what you wanted in information as you needed but was organized so that you could go back and get additional information in the future.

Football was almost banned in 1906 after a dozen and a half deaths (and many more serious injuries in the preceding season), but President Theodore Roosevelt saved the game by convincing college representatives to initiate stricter rules to make the game less brutal and dangerous. &quote;
