Editorial Reviews

Review

'Why England Lose is an Arsene Wenger of a book - more thoughtful than most of its rivals and, by football standards, positively intellectual.' The Times 'It is rare, even after the great leaps football literature has taken in the past two decades, to find a book that takes the breath away, but Why England Lose does. Every page engages, entertains and challenges the lazy assumptions that still dominate football, not merely in its punditry, but all too often in the way that clubs are run.' FourFourTwo

Format: Kindle Edition
The book is an interesting read.

The number of typos in this book is quite unacceptable. There are even glaring mistakes in the chapter titles! No English-speaking person could have proof-read this book. Frankly, this is not good enough. The eBook should come straight from the publisher's electronic text. It should not be OCR'd / scanned from printed copy.

I have not read Moneyball, but by the number of references to it, it looks like it covers many of the same themes and/or simply applies them to football.

There are quite a large number of typographical errors in the e-book, which I guess is a problem with the scanning/letter recognition software used. Is there any way of reporting these so that they can be corrected?

Are you a fan of football? Or any other sport? Do you want to look for some interesting links between sports, economics, mathematics, statistics and game theory? Then go for this book. Although I haven't read it completely, I already know that this purchase was a master mind's choice! It's really worth it and you will definitely love it!
