5.0 out of 5 stars Holiday book i could not put down, 2 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Bamboo Goalposts (Hardcover)
many football books about other countries just talk about how they have developed and grown and talk about their famous teams. This cannot be written about china as their football is not developed in such a way. The football history they have starts in the 3rd century with a game credited as the birth of football. fast forward 800 years and Rowan Simons could not find a place to play. This book is as much about a foreigner in china as it is football. This is the story of one mans mission to change a countries sporting psyche taking him from the tiananmen square protests to tv personality.
