I started this book a few years ago, got distracted from it and then started reading a few pages at a time before bed. It turned out to be the perfect bed time reading, not because it was dry (because it's the opposite) but because it's engaging enough to keep me reading, but not so much that I don't have problems putting it down, like a novel. I don't know how much Marcotti had to do with this book, but Vialli's voice is one I really enjoy reading. I liked his opinions, interspersed with his personal experiences as both a player and a coach. It's one thing to read a book about soccer written by a fan or a journalist, it's another to read one by a former footballer who clearly has enough intelligence to get his ideas across, even with the help of a journalist. I especially liked that my book had a post-script, added after the '06 WC, which gave us some follow up. ( )
