"An eccentric, fascinating exposé 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.
