Recommends it for: The novice and the clueless
This is what happens when you're snowed into a hotel (and a very small radius of a few icy blocks) and from your balcony you can see the glowing BORDERS sign down the street.

The "For Dummies" series always entices me simply by how much they break subjects down. You can be straight up retarded and come away from one of these books knowing at least something.

This book is definitely good for beginners or for teaching someone soccer. I taught my brother how to play using this book...
