Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Many explanations [of England's poor form] can be found in the book Soccernomics in a segment entitled “Why England Loses.” (This is well worth a read for any English football fan; essentially, you overvalue your football heritage and undervalue the benefits of innovation.)”
—Stephen J. Dubner, co-author Freakonomics on the Freakonomics blog

“Fascinating.”
—VanityFair.com

“The authors take what ‘everybody' knows about success and failure in soccer and subject it to rigorous empirical analysis embedded in good stories that carry the narrative along…Highly recommended. All readers.”
Choice

Soccernomics [is] a sharply written and provocative examination of the world's game seen through the prism of economics and statistical data. It demolishes almost everything that most soccer fans believe about the game and how professional soccer teams should operate.”
—Globe & Mail (Canada)

"Oh, Rooney's the best. [My son] Ben thinks that England might be in the top four, but that's it. He knows the starting line up of every European team. We're reading this very interesting book about football together, you know Soccernomics."
—Lorrie Moore, author of A Gate at the Stairs and Birds of America



“Since the publication of the first edition of Soccernomics there have been several attempts to copy its content. Yet few authors in the world of soccer writing can tell a human story like Simon Kuper, and even fewer academics can write an understandable narrative with numbers like Stefan Szymanski. Together the two men raise the bar again, bringing new insights to an already great body of work that is accessible and interesting to the quant and casual reader alike… I highly recommend you pick it up for yourself, even if you have already read the first edition. You will not be disappointed.”
—Zach Slaton, Forbes (online)

“[Q]uite an entertaining read.”
—Simply Futbol

“[W]onderful book.”
—Pro Soccer Talk (NBC Sports blog)

Soccernomics… remains essential reading for anyone seeking an analytical take on the game.”
—Keeping Score (TIME Soccer Blog)

Soccernomics is the most intelligent book ever written about soccer.”
San Francisco Chronicle


“With Soccernomics, the FT's indispensable Simon Kuper and top-flight sports economist Stefan Szymanski bring scrupulous economic analysis and statistical rigor to a sport long dependent on hoary – and, it seems, unfounded – assumptions…Gripping and essential.”
—Slate.com, Best Books of 2009

“[The book] is a sporting tale in the Freakonomics mode of inquiry, using statistics to come up with fascinating conclusions.”
Independent (UK), Best Books of 2009

“[Szymanski and Kuper] entertainingly demolish soccer shibboleths…Well argued and clear headed.”
Financial Times, Best Books of 2009

“Using data analysis, history and psychology, [Soccernomics] punctures dozens of clichés about what it takes to win, and who makes money in soccer – and in sports in general.”
—Associated Press

“[Kuper and Szymanksi] do for soccer what Moneyball did for baseball—put the game under an analytical microscope using statistics, economics, psychology and intuition to try to transform a dogmatic sport.”
New York Times

“[A] must read for any fan of the business of soccer…”
—Footiebusiness.com

Présentation de l'éditeur

At last, football has its answer to Freakonomics, The Tipping Point and The Undercover Economist.

Why do England lose?�?
“Why do Germany & Brazil Win?�?
“How have Spain conquered the World?�?
"Penalties - what are they good for?"
“What is the price on achieving success and the true cost of failure?�?

These are questions every football fan has asked. Soccernomics (previously published as Why England Lose) answers them. Written with an economist's brain and a football writer's skill, it applies high-powered analytical tools to everyday football topics.

Soccernomics isn't in the first place about money. It's about looking at data in new ways. It's about revealing counterintuitive truths about football. It explains all manner of things about the game which newspapers just can't see. It all adds up to a new way of looking at football, beyond clichés about "The Magic of the FA Cup", "England's Shock Defeat" and "Newcastle's New South American Star".

No training in economics is needed to read Soccernomics but the reader will come out of it with a better understanding not just of football, but of how economists think and what they know.
