Recommended for: sports lovers (particularly football/soccer)

I'm not in any way familiar enough with football (soccer) to get full enjoyment out of this book. However, despite this lack of background (which did get QUITE frustrating at parts), the book was enjoyable and had tons of laugh-out-loud moments. I found myself stopping people in the room to read sections aloud to them as well.

Like Hornby's other books, he has a knack for human insight and is a gifted storyteller, finding the things nearly all of us have in common (even if you're not well versed in football).

It's a shame the Jimmy Fallon movie had so little to do with the book of its namesake.
