Wonderful Review of Basics

I had a cursory knowledge of football and this book started from the very beginning and explained all the essentials. Reinforced what I already knew and explaining some areas that I didn't quite understand. Author also recommended what to read next.

Enjoyable

This book was very enjoyable. Mr. Hicks did an excellent job in reading the book and keeping my attention. I do wish that he had gone a bit more in-depth into each of the positions and their function. Otherwise, I think that the book met and delivered upon the stated objectives.
