Given the excitement of his football career, this is a surprisingly dull book

Given the dynamic nature of the football career of Fran Tarkenton, this book is remarkably dull. At least if your interest is the inside nature of football as played by Tarkenton. In many ways, it is more a book about the role of religion in the life of Tarkenton than it is about football. There are no long descriptions of intense moments in a football game, in many ways it reads like a diary. Throughout the book, Tarkenton repeatedly states the depth of his religious faith, including praying for divine guidance at a critical point in a game.
There is an insert called "Tips on Quarterbacking", eight pages of photos with captions that are designed to help the budding quarterback play the game better. However, they are of limited value, it appears that the section was included more as a selling gimmick rather than a serious attempt to teach football.
