it was amazing
Read in January, 2000

This is one of my top five books of all time. As an Italian American who has never been to Italy it was an eye opener. As a sports fan who knew nothing about soccer it gave me an understanding and an ability to enjoy the sport. And on top of all of that it is in its heart a Rocky-ish root for the underdog story.

It works as a travelog. It works as sports novel (except it is true).

Give it a try. I dare you to tell me you didn't enjoy it.
