5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reading 5 Dec. 2011
By Christophoros - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book about the NFL. Very illustrative descriptions of the football stories and full of wonderfull pictures. I think it's a must for the real football lovers, especially for those who want to learn details of the most exciting moments of the history of this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great photos but marred by an abundance of errors 25 Jan. 2012
By Scott Blake - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The errors in this book are plentiful but would probably not be noticed by a casual fan or one who isn't interested in pro football history. You want examples? The photo caption on page 256 states that Roger Staubach was tackled by Dick Witcher of the 49ers. Witcher was a wide receiver who never played defense. Page 212 contains a section about the "1969 AFC divisional playoff game". 1969 was the final year of the AFL, which to many fans (including me) was superior to the NFL. Page 166 is about Ernie Nevers in the 1929 Thanksgiving game between the Chicago Cardinals and Chicago Bears. The photo caption states "...the game between the New York Giants and Chicago Cardinals on Thanksgiving Day 1929 at the Polo Grounds." There are other errors but those are the most obvious.

Another problem with this book is the lack of page numbers on photo-only pages. The editor saw nothing amiss about pages which contain a photo caption but no page number?

The accompanying DVD is a disappointment. Anything narrated by Bob Costas is worth watching. What I didn't like about it is the heavy emphasis on games within the past 20 years or so. The book is much more balanced historically. Almost any other NFL films production is more historically worth watching than this one. I recommend instead "Full color football: The history of the American Football League". It is scheduled to be released on DVD this year and episodes are sometimes shown on the NFL Network.

This book and the DVD would probably be most appreciated by casual fans who want to learn some pro football history. For those of us old codgers (56 and counting) who have been interested in that history for many years, it is worth watching if you can discount the many errors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Football Fans, Rejoice! 21 Mar. 2013
By H. D. Espinosa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Now that's a magnificent "coffee table" book with great pictures and interesting stories on some of the most memorable moments in NFL history. Every time I flip through its pages I am reminded of why I am a huge football fan. And being a Giants fan myself, nothing makes me prouder than seeing the "helmet catch" portrayed right on the front cover. What moment could be greater than that Super Bowl? Sorry Pats fans, I had to say this, but believe me when I say that this book will also bring back nice memories from the New England team as well.

And the 50-minute or so DVD featuring Bob Costas and actual videos of some of the stories featured in the book is a great addition.
