Great info for everyone

Wow, there is a lot more history there than I thought! I learned loads of new facts about the NFL that are really interesting. I must admit that the sport is fairly new to me so I didn’t have the best knowledge but I really enjoyed the nice and easy to follow way this was presented.

Excellent History and Explanations

I loved learning all the history of football in this book from the origin to rule changes to records and really cool facts that I never knew before. It explained the main terminology and player positions in a way that kids can understand who are just getting interested in the sport. I would recommend this to any parents of aspiring football fans and to anyone who needs the basic knowledge of the game.

Not just for children!

I loved this book and I’m a 36 year old adult! As a fan of all sports but noticeably NOT American Football, this book was perfect to dip my feet into the game. I really enjoyed the easy-to-digest team facts and history and how to understand the game.
I’ll be honest, still probably prefer soccer, but I really am looking forward to watching my first NFL game after this! :)

Helped my son

I have an 8 year old son and this has really helped him generally understand the game. He is about to start flag fottball and I wanted him to at least kind of understand the game before his first practice. Highly recommend!

Must listen for young sports fans!

We had so much fun listing to this on our long drive to Florida and the time flew by. The narrator has a great voice for the material, and it covers everything you would ever want to know about football, including the history, coaches, players, and championships. We all learned a ton, and our favorite part by far was the section on the underdogs. Who doesn't love motivational story?!

Not so clueless anymore!

As an ex-pat NFL is not something I have ever been familiar with. This book has been the perfect listen to get my knowledge up to scratch! I never knew there was such fascinating history for the sport. The fun facts sprinkled throughout the book make it easy to listen to and enjoyable for both kiddos and adults alike! I love the chapter on the best players of all time which has really opened my eyes to the greatness of NFL. Great narration too!

Outstanding audiobook - super recommended!

This was a fantastic audiobook for the kids, but truth be told it’s even great for parents to listen in on too because it’s just packed with amazing content.

I love the organization of the book, about the history, the players, records, and inspiration.

If your kids are interested in football or sports, this is a great audible for them!!

the only book you need for a history of the NFL

The book isn't just great for kids but for people who are essentially clueless about American football.
I used to work as a security guard for the football games at the university I attended as an undergraduate. And even then I didn't care about the sport or how it went even while my enthusiastic coworkers tried to explain it to me.

I really became interested in American football when I watched a series on Netflix about Colin Kaepernick's time in high school called "Colin in Black and White." I looked him up and I could see his love for the sport, how fun it was for him and that's when I really started to do a little bit of research on the sport. But not in a book, Just random YouTube videos.

I am not American, So I grew up around football, which is known as soccer, in the United States. So I really only had an interest in soccer and track and field as sports because those are the most popular sports in the country where I grew up. The more I learn about American football, the more I recognize it as an intellectual sport. Not as a dumb jock sport, like I used to think . I think after listening to this book; I might actually sit down and watch the Super Bowl, which is something that I've always heard about, but have never actually sat down and watched.

I've heard about Jim Brown but I didn't know how good of a football player he was until listening to this book, That he was the greatest running back the sport has ever seen. So I'm very grateful for this lesson, so I don't walk around taking that dude for granted. Listening to this book really gives you insight into the sport that you cannot find in YouTube videos to be honest.

So I recommend this read for both children and for people that are completely new and/or clueless to the sport of American football.
