Description

"An eccentric, fascinating expos#65533; of a world most of us know nothing about." --The New York Times Book Review

"An insightful, entertaining, brainiac sports road trip." --The Wall Street Journal

"Foer's skills as a narrator are enviable. His characterizations... are comparable to those in Norman Mailer's journalism." --The Boston Globe

A groundbreaking work--named one of the five most influential sports books of the decade by Sports Illustrated--How Soccer Explains the World is a unique and brilliantly illuminating look at soccer, the world's most popular sport, as a lens through which to view the pressing issues of our age, from the clash of civilizations to the global economy.
