From the PublisherSan Francisco Book Review
This mini coffee table book is a must for any world soccer fan, young or old. . . . This book helps capture that excitement, celebration, and even despair of this great game. I could tell Gifford is a real fan, he really loves soccer, and his love of the game came out in the book. Geared toward the American soccer fan (everywhere else the game is called “football”), this book would make an ideal holiday gift.
There's plenty here to orient beginners (e.g., onfield formation diagrams) and enough in-depth coverage to more than satisfy longtime aficionados. "Fact File" and "Game Action" insets, profiles of key players, a generous helping of photos, stat boxes and diagrams make this the definitive book for soccer fans.
Bound (MSN Superfan)
[This] book is absolutely a love letter to soccer.
For fans, would-be fans, committed fans, fans who probably ought to get a life but probably won’t, fans who live for the thrill of the World Cup, fans who care only to support their local teams – for all these and more, Gifford’s book is both a fine introduction and an excellent reference.
