The essence of football, 14 Feb 2011
Simon Kuper manages to write a book that touches the true essence of football: a game that's much more than a game.
If you like football, not only as a game but as a social, economical, cultural and political aspect of modern day society, then this book is for you.
Wonderfully written, it's one of the best books about football ever.
