Customer Review

on 11 February 2013
A wonderful book, poignant and encapsulating in highlighting the passion and love people have for football across Africa in its rawest form. This amazing journey across continental Africa by Jessica Hilltout prior to the World Cup in South Africa in 2010 shares beautifully through magnificent photographic excellence the joy that, a simple hand made ball kicked with no shoes never mind boots, makes to millions across Africa, millions who were overlooked and forgotten during the African world cup where billions of dollars were spent on the privileged few. This book and these pictures are a pertinent, visual and splendidly colourful reminder of what 'real' football means to so many at a time where many of those so privileged enough to earn a living in some way through football have completely forgotten the true essence and love of football in its purest form. Anyone who still loves the beautiful game should buy this book immediately both as a wonderful reminder to themselves of the beauty football brings to so many lives in so many guises and if you are fortunate enough to have children show it to them, the younger the better! and then finally leave the book in a spot where every visitor you have has a chance to browse and be encapsulated!
