Everything you wanted to know about soccer but was afraid to ask...
Fascinating book of both the history and rules of football, or soccer as it is known in the states. Sophia Grace untangles the mysteries to the uninitiated with neat explanations and beautiful pictures. Short, concise, and to the point, the author examines the roots with juicy tidbits of information to peak anybody's curiosity. She delves into the how's and why's of the game, describes FIFA, which this reader had just a basic notion about. Finally, she explains who is playing and how the whole women's division has developed to become a recognized sport. Interesting, informative, and a real help for those who need to know more, this is a great book to use as an introduction to learn about a sport.
