Well written, researched, passionate, self effacing, and contextual.,
This review is from: Tor!: The Story of German Football (Paperback)
Many books try to place sport in a wider context, Barca a peoples passion has limited success, Viva la vuelta promises it and fails. This book stands head and shoulders above all other sporting books I've read.
It will make you crave to watch the Bundesliga, or at least manage in it. A superb map showing the location of the major teams that feature in the story is a joy too.
