Reviews (Excerpts)

- "This book has everything anyone could possibly need to know about the world's greatest game. Messi, Ronaldo, Pele, Maradona, Cruyff, Brazilian Ronaldo, Berlusconi, Manchester United's insane hooligan firms, kidnappings, murders, and an insight into the top European football leagues." - Raphael Louvre

- "This book is a fantastic introductory into the sport of soccer. By the conclusion of the book, I honestly felt like giving it a closer look. Note that this book covers more of the behind the scenes aspect rather than technical aspects of the game. So, if you’re trying to understand the rules of the game, or how to play soccer, this probably won’t answer those questions. But, it will be complementary to any “how to” book that you find on this particular subject.
Very well-written and very informative. I highly recommend this book."
- Jada A. Washington

- "I'm new to soccer, learnt a fair few things about it! Would recommend for anyone trying to get into the world game, enjoyable read! " - Anthony Hilbert

- "A good guide book, written well with anecdotes, history, commentary, and funny quotes. Most guide books (sports, history, whatever) can become dry in parts to the neutral reader, but this was an entertaining breakdown of a sport taking the world by storm. " - Seth Colter

- "As a football fan from a young age highly recommend soccer obsession to any fan of the world game! 5 stars!" - Ben (Amazon)
