Reviews

A continuous feast... The best book ever about football - or anything! * Wall Street Journal *
A great book that makes football absolutely fascinating to fan and non-fan alike...a tale to gladden the envious heart of every weekend athlete... Plimpton has endless curiosity, unshakable enthusiasm and nerve, and a deep respect for the world he enters * New York Times *
The agility and imaginativeness of his prose transforms his account of this daydream into a classic of sports reporting * New Yorker *
Possibly the most arresting and delightful narrative in all of sports literature * Book Week *
With his gentle, ironic tone, and unwillingness to take himself too seriously, along with Roger Angell, John Updike and Norman Mailer he made writing about sports something that mattered. * Guardian *
