Reviews

All the classic stories are here [as well as] lesser-known tidbits... Dempsey's prose is a nice mix of flavorful sports-reporting and poetic impressions... Enjoyable and informative.
Built on a vault of detail that will impress soccer aficionados, supplying choice cuts of thinking, anecdote and history that can be used to impress when waxing authoritatively on the game...[It's] free from sentimentality, and crafted with a sharp wit.--Alan Black
Succeeds wildly... Dempsey packs a surprising amount of history and information into the scant few pages allotted for each of the teams, a testament to his knowledge and tenacity... [R]eaders even remotely interested in soccer will have a difficult time putting it down.--Douglas Lord
