Down, set, huh? This football mom's book tackles the language of the gridiron! Alice Nicholas penned this book aimed specifically at women who want to become well-versed in the game of football. Nicholas, the wife of a former linebacker and the mother of three football-playing sons, felt helpless. Nicholas said, "As soon as our oldest child started playing in the fifth grade, I was totally lost, and I knew that if I was going to be able to communicate and encourage my sons, I had to understand the game of football. My goal with this book is to bridge the gender gap when it comes to football. I want women to be able to watch a game, understand it, enjoy it, know what position their child plays and what he is supposed to do."

Talk Football is the “go-to” football book for beginners. While written from a mother’s perspective, it has also been critiqued by professionals.  This purse-sized paperback includes ten brief chapters, a gridiron glossary and beautiful watercolor illustrations that explain the fundamentals of America’s game clearly and concisely.

Endorsed by wives and mothers of NFL players, chosen by coaches and booster clubs as school fundraisers, and used as classroom curriculum in SEC football classes for women, Talk Football has proven to bridge the gender gap and allow readers to understand and enjoy this popular sport.

Ladies, you know when a touchdown happens, but if you take your cue to clap and cheer from the spectators around you, then Alice Nicholas's book is for you. Talk Football is easy to understand and packed with crucial information in 10 brief chapters and a gridiron glossary. It's tiny enough to stuff in your purse and pull out for quick reference and also makes an attractive conversation piece on the coffee table. Talk Football begins with the history of the game, breaks down the numbers of the gridiron, deciphers the scoreboard, outlines the difference between the players and simply explains the basic X's and O's. Watercolor illustrations of the ref's play rulings and penalty gestures will never make you wonder in confusion again. --The Clarion Ledger by Billy Watkins
