Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This fabulous book is "everything you ever wanted to know about soccer" in illustrated form. Young and old soccer fans alike will find the myriad of photos, both contemporary and historical, a treat. Every facet of the sport, beginning with a history, is dealt with, and includes rules, skills, players, equipment, the field, as well as famous players and teams, and so on. The layout is visually appealing. However, some text is so finely printed that it is a challenge to read. Overall, the book is a veritable encyclopedia of soccer which will thrill any serious player or fan. An index is included. 2000, Dorling Kindersley Publishing, Ages 5 to adult, $15.95. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger
School Library Journal
Gr 3-7-From its origins to the latest World Cup finals, Hornby covers the history of the sport. Brief discussions of such topics as shoes, uniforms, equipment, and the evolution of the rules are also included. Like other "Eyewitness" titles, the pages are jam-packed with trivia illustrated by numerous full-color photographs of players and memorabilia that will please fans. However, despite a picture of Mia Hamm on the cover, only men are discussed in the sections on famous teams and players and a mere five paragraphs in the entire book reference women. While Gary Lineker's Soccer (2000) or The Young Soccer Player (1994, both DK) focus on the skills and basic rules, Hornby vividly captures the legacy of the sport. His book may not be used as frequently as those describing soccer skills and drills, but it will find a place for those wanting to trace the history of the sport.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
