More than just football,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ball is Round: A Global History of Football (Paperback)
You dont have to be a football fanatic to enjoy this book, as it can be read as a social and political history of the 20th century with football as the theme running through. It is interesting to follow football from its late 19th century upper class origins to the 'people's game' of today. This is a BIG book and demands an investment of time, but it is well written and easy to read.
