    Is incredible better than fantastic? If yes, than this book is incredible, otherwise, if these words mean differente things, than I am pretty sure this book is both.
    Could not let it go until I finished it and the “wow” feeling is still hanging around my head.
    At first glance, it might seem that it’s just a book about analysing data, but as you step further and further, things just go on, becoming even more interesting as you turn the pages.
    Who’s the best coach in history? The country most passionate about football? How to score in a penalty shoot out…?
    All these questions are answered, or at least are presented in a way that it should give a wider view of things, and not only that, but through out the text are interesting facts intertwined with analyses and studies. And this done beautifully.
    I HIGHLY recommend it to people that love “soccer”. Give it a chance and you might feel marveled by it!

    Remarkably moving, much more enjoyable than I expected, February 23, 2013

    Soccernomics does two things very well. One is expose widely accepted beliefs in soccer culture. This is precisely what I expected from this book, and it’s worth buying just to be informed on that front.

    It also uses statistics to reveal the social unity that soccer fosters. I was very moved by the chapter that focuses on suicide and fandom (and club loyalty at large).

    Please do not be scared away by the word “statistics”. I hate math as much if not more than anyone. This book is extremely accessible to the average reader, but still deep enough to pique intellectual curiosity.

    In short, Soccernomics is an absolute must-read if you are a soccer fan, period.

    This review is from: Soccernomics (Kindle Edition)
    Fantastic analysis of a sport which I have loved and followed for more than 30 years. Most findings are straight out surprises while a few are hunches I had nursed all along, like inward curving corner kicks lead to more goals, albeit scrappier ones…. This book will certainly make you sit up and question everything you ever thought you knew about football.
