Kuper knows his stuff. 4 décembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Apart from a very informal writing style and a few errors like calling 1994 Brazilian presidential candidate LULU instead of LULA (Lula btw is the next President of Brazil), this book is just a jewel.
He shows well how culture and society mingle with sport, in this case, soccer. He was spot on repeatedly, such as:
--Holland Vs. Germany rivalry. I've asked Dutchmen about whether those comments regarding the war are true and they said yes.
--Brazil vs. Argentina: he said an American journalist never saw home court advantage such as the rabid fans in the Nunez venue in the Brazil match. True again. When these two play in either country home court advantage blows away anything US sports fans are used to.
And on he goes. If you are a diehard soccer fan as I am, you will love this book!

Well In There! 16 octobre 2002
Par A. Ross - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Young journalist Kuper travelled around the world like a madman to gather the stories of soccer's relationship to politics and culture collected in the book's twenty chapters. The result is a book that will delight anyone with an interest in the world's most popular sport, and will intrigue those interested in the world beyond their boundries. The book's sole flaw is a certain choppiness, which is partially due to the haphazard nature of his travels, and partly due to Kuper's perhaps overambitious goal of examining how soccer "affects the life of a country" and "how the life of a country affects its football." Concentrating on one or the other would have given the book the focus it lacks-but that doesn't detract from its power.
Kuper uses soccer as a lens to look at the most central issues of the modern world race (South Africa), religion (Ireland and Scotland), culture (Brazil), totalitarianism (Argentina & East Germany), corruption (Ukraine), poverty (Africa), and especially nationalism (Holland, Slovakia, Catalonia, Serbia).E ven those who dismiss sport as an "opiate of the massess" and don't care for soccer will be forced to acknowledge the sport's popularity and centrality, especially in less-developed nations. Each chapter is a stand-alone piece, with lengths varrying from 5-25 pages or so, perfect for reading on the bus or just before bed. The only other cavaet on the book is that it does often seem rather dated, and one keeps wishing it was a bit fresher. Still, this is a great bit of journalism and one every soccer fan should read.

the best soccer-football reporting book so far. 30 décembre 1997
Par Stephen L. Dahlgren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
this is the book that you have been waiting to read. this is the book that you wanted all those times that you went to the bookstore and found one sad "soccer skills for 10-year-olds" book hidden amongst a mass of other sport books. it has won all the prizes and is written by simon kuper, who grew up in holland and knows the game. he uses great wit, his knowledge, and passion for the game that we love. he writes about matches he has seen in africa, clubs he has visited in the former soviet union, fans he has met along the way. you walk away after reading this thinking, "someone understands."

The best football book written in the past 10 years 23 avril 2002
Par Winston - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is written in a style that will appeal to the lazy sunday reader in search for a funny read about football and politics, or the serious academic seeking answers to how a nation's culture manifests itself in the football style it adopts.
Kuper's book is simply outstanding. In it, we find out why the Dutch hate the Germans, the secret behind the success of Dynamo Kyev, and why anyone trying to map a post-war history of English culture must explain Gazza's tears. No serious football aficionado should be without this book.
