I have never been a fan of soccer. I had watched some of the World Cup in 2002, and followed Italy all the way to the Championship in 2006. When 2010 World Cup rolled around, I realized I was actually looking forward to it. So I decided to pick a team in 2011 in the Serie A Italian league, and follow them thru the year. I also bought this book to help me learn about the history of Italian soccer, and to help me select my team. (Juventus).The book was unbelievably captivating. I learned so much about the game in general and particularly about the Italian game. The research was impressive, and the stories often fascinating. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about Italian Calcio, and about the sometimes dark history of the game.

It's hard to explain how good this book is. When I was searching for a soccer book, I wanted one that was not only stats and the usual stuff, I wanted one that was written in a fun way and had stuff in it that I had never heard off. This book fits the bill. If you like Soccer and want to read about Italy's soccer traditions, scandal, Money, media, World Cup and a lot lot more, this book will be a hit with you. This book is totally amazing! Buy it!

This is the most comprehensive history of Italian football spanning from the very beginnings until today I have seen so far. It incorporates even the 2006 scandals and Worldcup 2006. Excellent read.
In case you are a Tifoso of Italian football this is a must for your library.It rate it even higher than Birgit Schönau: Calcio: Die Italiener und ihr Fußball (The Italiens and their football) written in German.
