The World Is A Ball, by John Doyle

Here is a book I wish our local library would pick up. Doyle is a terrific writer -- his dispatches from the previous World Cup were among the best in the broadsheets -- and everything I've heard about this book suggests it is in league with Hornby's Fever Pitch. If that is the case, I would create a space for it in the shelves and lay down my money. Alas, I am not enough of a soccer fan to make the purchase in blind faith.
