Fascinating in a Great Format

This is an excellent book all about the world according to football.

Everything in the book is connected to football in one way or another -

sometimes very loosely!

The format of this book is excellent with

small chunks of text broken up with pictures, speech bubbles and

diagrams. This makes the book look far more interesting & less

daunting for the more reluctant reader. This doesn't have to be read

from cover to cover but can be dipped in and out of.

This is a

surprisingly interesting book despite me not being particularly

interested in football. There are some very quirky facts in here. This

is certainly going to attract the attention of any reader, especially

those who would rather be out on the football pitch than reading a book.

An excellent series which is were set out & fascinating.

I was sent a free copy of this book from the publisher.
