Editorial Reviews

Review

“These books address a largely unfilled niche: short, highly readable biographies of contemporary soccer stars. The texts are printed over and around voluminous, richly printed photographs and include many pages of scoring statistics and league standings, awards, even a QR code to direct readers to a video of Zlatan’s 40-yard bicycle-kick goal in a 2012 match against England. Frequent references to great players of the past—Maradona, Pelé, Cruyff, Eusebio—lend the books a welcome historical context.... These entries are excellent….”
School Library Journal

“The U.S. book—with profiles of coaches from Thomas Cahill to Jurgen Klinsmann and players from Joe Gaetjens to Landon Donovan—serves as a fine source for anyone of any age on American soccer history. (All of the books are also stat resources.)
Although meant for young readers, there’s nothing childish about the presentation in "Legends Series." The graphics—such as the Gold Cup opponents map in U.S. Men’s Team—are colorful yet clear and informative. They're simply beautiful books that tell fascinating stories.”
SoccerAmerica Youth Soccer Insider

“High quality and high attention to even the smallest of details. Clever use of formatting and photographs hook the reader immediately! I can't wait to get these on the shelves of my library - they are going to just fly right off.”
—Gayle Byrne, Children’s Librarian, Killingworth Library

"These books are a terrific soccer resource for kids! They combine the best of world soccer along with history, geography and a glimpse at what it’s like growing up as a young soccer player in another country. Soccer is truly a global language and these books help American kids speak it fluently. What a great opportunity for young soccer players to learn about their heroes and the legendary clubs of the world. These books are engaging and fun!"
—Lynn Berling-Manuel, American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO)

"Readers will be captivated by the stunning photography."
—Michael Terborg, Librarian, Prince George's County Public Schools

This is a great book to purchase if you are a true fan of FCBarcelona. It contains very useful in information that every fan should know about the Club. I read it to my kids as a bed time story on the weekends and they love it. I really recommend this book to anyone who is looking to learn more about the Club.

I bought this book for my 14 year old grandson. He is new to soccer, and has a real Passion for the sport. He takes private coaching, and reads everything he can get his hands about the sports history and players. He is thrilled. Thank you.
