"Having been part of La Roja's inner circle since 2008, Hunter provides superb insight into how, in the words of Casillas, they have 'made something difficult appear normal.' Packed with interviews, above all else it serves as a stark reminder of how tough it'll be for the brilliant but ageing squad next year. ****" "Four Four Two""
"Graham Hunter s fine new book is full of details and memories best gathered by an embedded, Spanish-speaking reporter. What Hunter captures best is the camaraderie among this gifted bunch of players." "Independent""
"Graham Hunter's Spain is a typically boisterous, entertaining account of how the national team rose from the burden of heavy criticism to being the best in the world. Hunter's access - first revealed in his award-winning Barca - is astounding. This is a book that carries the atmosphere and secrets of the Spanish dressing-room to the wider world." "Herald""
"Hunter has rubbed shoulders with stars such as Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi, but has become closest with the Spanish players and he has used that unique access to tell the inside story of how Spain won the World Cup and last two Euros. A fascinating read." "Daily Record""
"Graham Hunter, who has been enthralled with Spanish football and culture since trucking 2,000 miles from Aberdeen to follow the 1982 World Cup in Spain, has followed up his award-winning book on the making of Barca s wonder team with a provocative account of what makes Spain s invincible team tick. Part of it stems from Aragones s charismatic leadership and the collegiate management style of his successor, Vicente del Bosque, but much, too, comes from the country s nurturing of its underage talent." "Irish News""

There could have been a real danger of the book becoming simply match report after match report, but the author uses the personal access that he has had to the team, the technical staff, administrators, etc., to really good effect. Throughout, the words of the people involved complement the on-going history, bringing it to life.
There is much here that those behind the England men's football team could learn from. However, beyond the detail, ultimately this is a fitting tribute to the success of Spain's national team in recent years, a tale well worth telling. The current national men's football team from Spain is sure to be remembered for a long time; already many rank them alongside the likes of Brazil's 1970 team, perhaps the best ever. I recommend that all football fans learn more about this team and the reasons for their success by reading this book.
I love reading about these players but thought Graham Hunter's Barça couldn't be matched. I was wrong. This is as good if not better. If the author reads this, well done on your work and I hope your inspired to produce more as I have thoroughly enjoyed them.
