Join in the fun as Paula Duffy, lifelong sports enthusiast and founder of Incidental Contact, a sports learning site for women, entertains you with the basic rules of the game, information on the players and what they do, and common terms used by announcers, as well as how to use what you've learned to get and keep a guy's attention as you "Talk Sports".
A firm believer that a little sports knowledge can go a long way, Duffy says, "Sports talk is the most easily learned and best way to break the ice in any context...at home, in business, or at play. I am here to debunk the myth that men don't like to talk. Men do like to talk...sports."
So ladies, your fumbling days are over. It's time to move out of the stands and onto the playing field, to grab that tight end you want to meet, or the boyfriend or husband you want to know better.
Be sure to download the Powder Room Power Card cheat sheet, for when there's a break in the action.

Well, its a lighthearted happy book. But, if you already know theres 4 downs, 10 yds to 4 downs, field goal, touchdown, referees wear black & white striped shirts & blow a whistle, a wide receiver catches passes (not runs it), punting, you don't need this book.
Really really basic!
Would be helpful only if you are from another country than USA (or planet).
The book does not go into player positions, or any even simple strategies. I was looking to understand why players line up like they do (ie: offensive & defensive plays), because I cannot tell a shotgun lineup from a blitz lineup.
I found a better book for learning football is "Football for Dummies".
Insert witty remark here...
I felt like I was being taught how to tie my shoes.
This book was just took basic for those who have heard of the game of football.
No. The performance was like listening to clipped or snippits crudely assembled into a "how to" book or a DIY picture book. It just wasn't great.
If you've never seen a game of football or have never even heard of the game of football--in other words, you've lived your life buried under a rock that is locked in a closet, then this is your go-to book on the basics of football.
