4.0 out of 5 stars Certain to Inform and entertain., 25 Oct 2009
This review is from: Inverting the Pyramid: The History of Football Tactics: A History of Football Tactics (Paperback)
I must admit having read the eventual winner of the 2008 William Hill Sporting book of the Year, Marcus Trescothick's 'Coming back to me,' and Wilson's 'Inverting the Pyramid,' there is no question the judges got it wrong. Perhaps it is the unhealthy culture that exists within society about other people's lives that makes Banger's book the winner but Wilson's journey is very informative and interesting.

It is perhaps more likely to be a book for anoraks and certainly doesn't flow like an autobiography. That isn't a criticism, it is purely because his style covers all and that includes protagonists most football lovers are unlikely to have heard of.

More in the style of Glanville and covers topics that most readers wouldn't normally seek out. Brilliant sourcing and an incredible read. It's a shame there aren't many other books akin to 'Pyramid.'
