About the Book

“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.
