How Soccer Explains The World -- Franklin Foer

Soccer does not explain the world. Neither does this book. But, that’s just marketing anyway. The real purpose of the book is hidden the prologue, “Someone needed to write a book on the subject that would require the (oh-so-arduous) task of traveling the world…”

The success of this book is as a travelogue. Foer travels the globe and we get to tag along.

It is written like a series of magazine articles, rather than as a cohesive book, making it really good beach reading.
