's review

it was ok

The idea behind this book was good.

It, unfortunately, fell short, far too often. While a few essays were entertaining, some were listless (and in some cases not much about football at all). I also disliked the English-world bias of this. I would have preferred to hear essays from a local author rather than a British expat.

That being said, I enjoyed some of this and I would like this to become a fined-tuned, more meticulous fixture prior to every World Cup complete with local writers and insights. It's a book that's on the right track, at least.
