Just scanning this simple yet thorough book on football has made the game so much easier to understand. I ended up buying it so I could scribble in the margins and fold the pages. I highly recommend it.

I also got "Take Your Eye Off the Ball." It was too advanced for me. "Football for Dummies" is great for beginners like me yet even my husband learned a thing or two.
