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".

This book made me so angry. I was only hoping to learn about various penalties and make sure some assumptions I made were correct. This woman only explains the game in the context of using sports knowledge to become appealing to guys. It's insulting. She makes the assumption that the reader is an imbecile. Did you really need to clarify that the team with he most points at the end of the game wins? At one point she tells the reader to "suck it up" and learn the stuff she is telling you, and then she proceeds to define the phrase "suck it up."
