5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Satisfying 20 janvier 2000
Par G. Remelius - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The only thing I knew about football was from watching it on TV. I picked up enough information to enjoy the game, but occassionally I got perplexed by commentator remarks and wished I knew what they were talking about. So I bought the "Idiot's Guide to Football", learned a lot more, but still felt unfulfilled. Then I broke down and bought another book, the "Dummies" version, and got exactly what I wanted. This book covers much more detail and doesn't talk down to you. The Idiot's version, while trying to be humorous, succeeds only in insulting your intelligence. If one were to absorb all that is contained in "Football for Dummies", you may not get any calls for head coaching jobs, but you'll certainly better understand the jargon and the meaning behind a lot of the decisions that are made during and before a game. It even covers team motivation, player training and diet, fantasy leagues, the draft, game scheduling, high school and college football information, and a fairly large football- speak section that covers more ground that most other glossaries I've seen. This book contains everything you need know about football to understand and enjoy the game.

I used to HATE football, mostly because I just didn't understand what was so exciting about watching a bunch of guys chase an oblong-shaped ball and pile on top of each other every time the whistle blew. But, after a life of sitting through high school football games as a marching band member, after attending a Division I college where football was a big deal, and after having a boyfriend who lived and breathed the sport, I finally decided to learn about football and understand what the all hype was about.
I'd like to say that, after reading "Football for Dummies," I finally get it.
Football is one of those sports you have to understand in order to appreciate. This book is a great starting point for those who know absolutely nothing about the sport. Howie Long (the cute guy from the Radio Shack commercials) explains every aspect of the game clearly and with great enthusiasm. His passion for the sport comes right off the page, and you can't help but feeling the same. Howie touches ALL the bases...from the rules to terms, positions, plays, penalties, referee hand signals, the history of football, uniforms, coaches, even fantasy football. He leaves no stone unturned.
The book opened my eyes to America's most popular sport. Now when I watch a game, I actually ENJOY it. It managed to erase my prejudices against the sport and instill a new love for it. And believe me, that was no small task. This book demystifies a complex, yet fascinating, sport.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not bad, but pretty confusing 29 janvier 2000

I'm English, my girlfriend is American and mad about football. I know absolutely nothing about the football so I thought I better find out about it. The book started off very promisingly outlining the basics, what football is, what the field looks like and what the players wear. I found all this very helpful. Then it went onto rules and positions and I got a little lost. There was just too much information to take on and the layout of the book wasn't consistent in my mind, the information seemed to jump around a bit and you would read something then a little later you would read something else that made it make sense. Then there were the diagrams! Now I'm not stupid but I couldn't make out what they were trying to tell me, all these lines, circles, triangles and letters just confused me! The "Football Speak" section was very good though, just what you need if you want to understand what commentators are going on about. Overall a good book, I know more than I did, but it can get quite complicated

4.0 étoiles sur 5 EXCELLENT SOURCE OF INFO FOR THE NOVICE! 7 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur

I cover high school sports and received my first football assignment the past year. While I've always been a football fan as far back as I can remember, I've never played the game and could never understand the Xs and Os like those who play or played the game. My first game I covered, I was lost. I needed a source to go to that I wouldn't be embarrassed to ask what must seem the most obvious of questions, especially when it comes to things I'd need to use for scorekeeping, recognizing penalties, and the location and purpose of the players. This book was the answer. I feel much better versed in football, even though I thought I already understood the game sufficiently. This book is a credit to the "Dummies" series. Kudos to the "Dummies" for including Football in their many subjects.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Keep Chapters 1-12 next to the remote control.... 4 janvier 2007
Par bensmomma - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The first 220 of this book's 400 pages will save the bacon of any football newbie who wants to follow the game without embarassment: they describe the rules of the game, the various positions, various forms of offensive and defensive plays. Did you know the difference between a 4-3 and a 3-4 defense? If not, this book will tell you. Keep the book with you as you watch the game on TV and soon you too will know what penalty the ref is calling from his hand signals alone, and you will know why to expect a pass when the announcer says "they're lined up in I-formation." The circles and triangles and arrows of football diagrams may start to make sense.

But if you read that sentence and found yourself saying "geez lady any dummy knows those things already," then you are not the Dummy for whom the book is written. You know too much for the front half of this book. You might, however, be interested in Chapter 13 and on, which seem geared to a different audience altogether. They offer advice on how you as a player might train in the off-season, how the draft proceeds, etc. This seems more attuned to the interest of players and intense fans, who are probably not the right audience for this book.

Moroever, this part seems a little musty and out-of-date...for example, it suggests keeping fantasy football statistics manually, but does not seem aware of the possibility of following a fantasy team on-line.

In short, I'm happy to have this book, but the good stuff up front is padded with stuff not meant for newbie readers and stuff that was written in the last millenium and carelessly updated. Keep the first half only next to the remote control; you will be quite satisfied.
