5.0 out of 5 stars
A great story that goes way beyond football, 18 May 2006
Ask any casual football fan about New York Cosmos and they won't get much further than Pele. This book is a fantastic soap opera of sporting shenanigans and political intrigue; anyone with the merest passing interest will find themselves enthralled. It said in one of the papers that Pele wanted too much money to get involved in the project (there's also a film of the same name which I haven't seen). More fool him for writing himself out of this fascinating piece of sporting history.
