Product description

Review

"Another landmark work from Mike Calvin, who has taken us beyond the surface of football to show its true workings. Ground-breaking reportage with a heart and a conscience. A service to the game." (Paul Hayward Telegraph)

"Extraordinary writing, a vital subject, a brilliant read" (Jonathan Northcroft Sunday Times)

"If you’re in any way interested in what lies beneath the water of the Premier League Iceberg, read Mike Calvin’s latest book No Hunger in Paradise" (Owen Gibson Guardian)

"A fascinating insight which gets to the heart of the matter – and problems – chasing every kid’s dream. A compelling read for anyone who likes football and the stories surrounding the stars of tomorrow. I couldn't put it down." (John Cross Daily Mirror)

"Another exceptional piece of work" (Jason Burt Telegraph)

"Highly recommended reading. An excellent and important book . . . No Hunger in Paradise explores the world of youth football and, if the stories within do one thing, they press the claim for serious discussion about how the English game treats the thousands of children who come into contact with the sharper end of youth football – and their families who often get reeled in to a cut-throat environment without really understanding what is going on" (Amy Lawrence)

"Eye-opening and compelling" (Iain Macintosh)

"Terrifying" (Richard Williams Guardian)

"No Hunger in Paradise is somehow both heart-breaking and uplifting. Just brilliant!" (Waterstones Sport)

"No Hunger in Paradise is humbling, educational, worrying and a great read. Can't recommend it highly enough. One of the best sports books I've ever read." (Barry Glendenning Guardian)

Book Description

Award-winning author of The Nowhere Men and Living on the Volcano, Michael Calvin is back with his new book that tells the inside story of becoming a professional footballer.
