    i think you have to be really into soccer to get much out of this book but i happen to be really into soccer surprisingly, the pieces by the super well known people i found less compelling, and i really liked several essays stories by folks i ve never heard of my main gripe with this anthology is that most of the articles are simply too short they end just as they are becoming interesting it makes for good quick reads here and there, but is somewhat unsatisfying eduardo galleano s piece in it is a perfect example it seems like it was pulled from a longer work of his and just chopped wrong i can t wait to his book, Soccer in Sun and Shadow though in any case, i m not a huge fan of the way it was edited, but found many of the pieces to be awesome.

    A truly global anthology of writing fiction, nonfiction, novel excerpts, poetry on soccer, from kicking a ball down a back alley in Bogota to celebrating a world cup victory.
