5.0 out of 5 stars An American Version of Fever Pitch March 24, 2014
By Robert
Verified Purchase
This short e-book by Kartik Krishnaiyer is a must-read for any American soccer fan, especially of the Premier League. Kartik brings a fan's perspective of the rise of a traditional English club, not an English power, but a club with a rich history. Walking through the especially recent history of Man City, he relates the American traditions of the club and how its fans have reacted to their recent success. Fans of any team can relate to the experiences of watching a favorite team from overseas and how that syncs with supporting a local club. I dare say this is an American Fever pitch; my only quibble is that he is an Man City fan and not an Arsenal fan, but even that is a friendly quibble. I highly recommend for any BPL and American soccer fan.

Full disclosure - I know Kartis and contribute on occasion to the website he references in the book. However, this is an honest review.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fun, If Non-Essential, Read May 9, 2015
Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Man City, you will enjoy this light read as the American author shares his tribulations as a fan of the sky blue, through the club's EPL title and beyond. Nothing revelatory...just fun.
