I am a fan of the league, and of sports non-fiction, but this book did not impress too much. It had all the information I expected, but fell short of being a good read. For casual US soccer fans wondering about MLS, I be much more likely to recommend Grant Wahl's "Beckham Experiment", which gives you all the background on MLS you really need, plus offers great insight into how the league operates, and includes profiles of Landon Donovan, Alexi Lalas, Ruud Gullit, Bruce Arena, and many every-day players from the 2007/8 Galaxy team.
Beau is a great chronicler of soccer in the United States and his work on Twitter (@duresport,) on his website sportsmyriad.com, and on ESPNW is worth following. I await the (inevitable?) follow-up on the history of women's pro soccer leagues in the USA.
