Insightful and entertaining. If you've enjoyed Wilson's articles in the Guardian or his previous book, Inverting the Pyramid, you will like this.
It could though have been even better - some of the descriptions of key phases in matches (X slipped the ball to Y, who checked back and found Z on the right, etc) are hard to visualise, and the inclusion of some diagrammes would have assisted understanding. Wilson is famous for unravelling the mysteries of tactics, formations, etc (again, some diagrammes would enhance this aspect further) but is also good with character vignettes (e.g. on Alf Ramsey, Graham Taylor, Paul Gascoigne). I look forward to future books and hope he can build on his very considerable achievements thus far.
