Editorial Reviews


Author who questions 'Why is soccer not popular in the US' releases an updated book on his life that has been touched by soccer 

Author Patrick Carolus Melus recently released the revised version of his celebrated soccer commentary, Wake Up and Win, AmericaMelus hopes that his work will inspire Americans to embrace soccer and strive to excel in a sport that is often overlooked in the United States.

Wake Up and Win, America follows the real-life story of Steve and Carol Bloom, a married couple who traveled to Atlanta to watch the Olympic soccer matches in 1996. Their infectious love of the sport prompted discussions with fellow fans, soccer enthusiasts, and even coaches. These conversations dissect the state of American soccer and how the U.S. men's national soccer team can rise to a competitive level on the world stage.

Melus seamlessly blends fictional elements into the story to expand upon the core narrative of Steve and Carol's experiences. Through their eyes, readers can explore the sport and how it embodies values like hard work, resilience, and unity in diversity. As an immigrant, the author delves into the international community's relationship with soccer and how diversifying athletics adds a multicultural perspective to American society.

Wake Up and Win, America is perfect for soccer fans and those who wish to see America succeed in a broader range of international sporting activities. Unlike other books about soccer, Melus's book explores the human side of American soccer through the feelings, ideas, and comments of ordinary people. Wake Up and Win, America also contains teachable moments that prompt leaders in soccer to consider how the sport will evolve in the future.

Reviewers applaud Melus's "insightful revelations into the world of soccer in America," describing Wake Up and Win, America as a comprehensive work with the "potential to leave an indelible mark on soccer followings in the United States." By highlighting the tangible benefits of soccer, this book encourages readers to build new relationships, become healthier, and make a commitment to the ultimate team sport.

Patrick Carolus Melus is an author and lifelong fan of soccer. In his work, he draws upon his background in psychology and education to analyze various facets of the sport.
