Inverting the Pyramid: The History of Football Tac&hellip by Jonathan Wilson
This is a very good book about the evolution of football and its tactics. Very complete and easy to read. However the author has some personal biases that sometimes go against historical facts. I certainly appreciated reading about Eastern European teams and their often neglected contribution to the evolution of the beautiful game. But some other teams mentioned by the author, and some managers, do not deserve a place in the list of football wonders. 1954's Uruguay for example were clearly inferior to Hungary, yet they deserved a place too in this book, since they changed the way South American teams played. 1975's Dynamo Kiev were a fantastic team, but the inclusion of the very mediocre… Read more
Student Friendly Quantum Field Theory by Robert D. Klauber
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
This book is really what I wished I had read when I was a student: it is written with the student in mind. Calculations, even lengthy ones, are done step by step, ideas are clearly explained and repeated over and over, wholeness charts help readers link different concepts and have an overall view of the subject. I recommend this book to all theoretical physics students and to physicists of all research areas who want to learn the basics of Quantum Field Theory.

The same review can be found on amazon.it, where I purchased the book.
Probability: v. 95 (Graduate Texts in Mathematics) by Albert Shiryaev
5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 24 Mar 2014
This is by far the best book on probability I have ever read. A masterpiece. In an epoch in which most probability books are marred with useless pseudophilosophical discussions "bayesian v frequentist", this book explains clearly what probability is and unfolds the beauty of Kolmogorov's measure theory, the foundation of all probability approaches. Every single chapter is excellent. I have hardly encountered a book where the only criticism I have is "it does not cover all the aspects of the subject" (no book ever does, but this is really the only shortcoming of Shiryaev's book). Every scientist who wants to learn probability theory or who is involved in data-analysis should… Read more
