by: Eduardo Galeano

Publisher: Nation Books (1995)

$16.99

Staff Pick by comrade: cp

The beautiful game deserves a beautiful book and this is it. In graceful prose, Galeano brilliantly conveys all that is wonderful about soccer; the joy and creativity, epic battles, and unsung heroes. His passion, wit and humor shine throughout and he never loses sight of the essential fact that, at its heart, soccer is a game to be played and enjoyed, not bought and consumed. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
