Editorial Reviews

Guelph Mercury / Waterloo Record - Brenda Hoerle
Got a soccer player or two in your house? This book by Sean D'Arcy, professional soccer freestyler and street soccer player, is certain to capture their attention. That's because D'Arcy details some fancy footwork that will give them a leg up on the field....Using detailed visuals and graphics, D'Arcy teaches moves such as Nutmegs, where you put the ball through another player's legs and then go past them; trick passes to get players out of tight situations and beat moves, which embrace style and creativity.
INFOLINK - Maxine Levitt
This compact, well-organized compendium of soccer tricks, written by a professional soccer freestylist, features persons of various ages, sexes, and ethnicities demonstrating various soccer tricks. It is divided into five sections: How to juggle, drills, flickups, catches, and juggling. Step-by-step directions are offered including tips and how to adjust for common problems. Since this book offers a very specialized skill, it would be most useful and fun in areas where soccer is very popular.
INFOLINK - Christie Peterson
This is a small book but full of great tips and illustrations to help the reader excel at soccer. The text is very encouraging and supportive.
