Feeling ignored on Sunday afternoon and Monday night? Think your man communicates more with the quarterback than with you? Maybe you’re just ready to tackle the sport, after always hearing words like “offsides,” “touchback” and “scrimmage” thrown around during the game while never truly understanding what they mean. Even if you’re already a professional fan, this book is just for you! Welcome to The Chicks’ Guide to Football, a comprehensive manual to America’s most popular sport. Written by a woman, for women, this book is designed to take a complicated sport, throw away the macho, testosterone-ridden stereotype, and dissect the game so female fans can really understand it! No matter what level of fan-hood you are on -- beginner, intermediate or advanced -- you’ll learn about the history of the sport, team profiles, plays, procedure, rules and regulations. If knowledge is power, this book will provide enough technical know-how and football jargon for the reader to impress, and even test, the most devoted male fan. Many other surprises await you in “The Chicks’ Guide” – a great way to make game day fun for all!

About the Author:

Carol Stout, a devoted football fan, became interested in learning about the game while dating a staff member for a professional football team who was formerly a college quarterback. What began as a desire to simply be able to hold an intelligent conversation about the game with her boyfriend became a lifelong love of the sport itself. Stout is the author and publisher of a best-selling series of books including 101 Things for Kids to do in Las Vegas.

Stout is single and lives in Indianapolis when she isn't traveling around the world researching her next book.
