This book is keeps it simple, it gives a brief decription of the forming of the World Cup. Then goes on and tells you all the results from qualifing rounds to the final. It also gives a description on the the host country(s) and each round in the finals. If you want a written history of the world cup then you probably can get better, but if you want one with every score of every game then this is perfect. In my humble opion a must have for any World Cup and Football fan.

First time I found a book that included how the teams qualified for all the World Cups, with all the results given.
I just hope that they will update it. I would like to buy the next updated editions as well.
My husband is keeping it by his side table and returning to it over and over again.... It will be dog eared soon!!!!

Essentially this book has one key strength; it contains the scores of every match in World Cup history, including qualifiers. That is it and that information is freely available on Wikipedia and the RSSSF online.

Otherwise it is weak in comparison with a raft of better histories available. The match reports are short, providing limited details while the statistical information is sadly lacking and doesn't even tell you the minute in which the goals were scored.

A key weakness is the way that the match reports are ordered. He works in rounds rather than taking each group in sequence. Therefore he'll start off with the first round of group matches, then the second and then the third. By the time you have got to the third it is easy to forget the previous results in the group, meaning that much of the drama of the tournament is sorely missing.

The prose itself is lively enough, so the reports read well but are lacking in the little details which would have been beneficial.

In summary there are much better alternatives available.
