Inverting the Pyramid: The History of Football Tactics: A History of Football Tactics

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless, 13 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is hands-down the best football-related book I have ever read. Wilson's work is - as always - articulate, considered and excellently researched. If you have any interest in the history of football (whether tactically or more generally) this book is indispensable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not fit for purpose, 13 July 2013
For something that is billed as an 'introduction' to postmodernism, this book fails in all areas. Christopher Butler - though undoubtedly very knowledgeable in many areas of literary theory - is a terrible choice as author for this book as he gives a totally biased and tendentious account of the philosophical movement.

If you are looking for a critique of postmodernism, this book is excellent (if a little catty in parts), but this series of books suggests an impartial introduction to a subject and, as such, this is not fit for purpose.

1.0 out of 5 stars Will break, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound quality on these were pretty good, however they broke after less than a month. Two friends of mine have had this model of headphone in the past and they, too, broke within the first few weeks of having them. It's a shame, because the sound quality was decent for the price.
