Booklist Review: "From the How to Play Like a Pro series, this volume looks at the fundamentals of football: passing, rushing, receiving, blocking, defense, punting, and kicking. Starting off, the Football Pregame section features a diagram of the field and an introduction emphasizing that players, whether big or small, male or female, need to develop their skills, practice good sportsmanship, and make safety their top priority. A typical double-page spread presents a skill such as catching. One paragraph explains how to catch a football, while two captioned photos illustrate specific points and a sidebar offers an idea for a practice routine. A clear, colorful photo appears on nearly every page. Though most feature NFL players, some of the smaller pictures show younger players in action. The discussion concludes with a glossary and short lists of books, videos, and Internet sites. This slender book offers information and practical advice for readers who want to understand the game and how to play it better.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2009 Booklist"
