A book about football and statistics may not sound like everyone's cup of tea, but I found this surprisingly readable and accessible. I have long held similar views to much of what is said and although I might quibble over a few details, I would agree with the general gist of the book. This book seems meticulously researched and although some other reviewers have said it appears somewhat slapdash on the Kindle, this seems to have been remedied as I found no such typos or layout problems. Perhaps for an updated edition, it might be an idea to include some charts, tables or diagrams for those who can't instantly recall how well England performed in every World Cup or Euro Championships. Recommended.
