What I Can Tell You: My son or husband barely get to help out on a review so I am always excited when they can help me.

Even for a non football lover like me this book was extremely entertaining.

The boys liked the "color photos, the extra big pages, the awesome stats and the interesting, fun categories."

Their favorites where:
10 Colorful Personalities (there are some characters in Football).
Top 10 Memorable Hairstyles (what were you thinking Tim Tebow?)
Top 10 Wacky Weather Games (NY Giants at St. Louis should have been called the mud bowl)

What I liked was that the stats aren't super long. I wasn't bored reading this book and this comes from someone who literally repeals Football. I didn't mind reading about Buddy Young who at only 5'4" was a running back and impossible for defenders to catch. I would have enjoyed watching that.

This is a great gift for young and old football fans although it is meant for the 9-12 age group.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy for the purpose of this review.  There was no monetary compensation.
