How Soccer Explains The WorldI’m at the midway point through this book and it is just fantastic. I really wish I had more time to sit and read 50 pages at a time, but my reading schedule is usually in 10-15 minute stints. My awesome wife Kate [cozy blog] bought this and another book for me. I was immediately attracted to this subject matter since I played soccer since I was a 4-year-old. My final season was my 3rd year of college.

Franklin Foer takes the reader on a global journey to the darkest shadows cast by soccer stadiums. He gets up close and personal to some of the worlds most infamous and dangerous soccer hooligans, all while showing the impact that the sport of soccer has had on it’s local communities and globally. It has been fascinating.

The book is called: How Soccer Explains The World: An {Unlikely} Theory of Globalization by Franklin Foer [Amazon]
