About the Author

GRANT WAHL is one of the world's leading soccer journalists. He joined Sports Illustrated in November 1996 as a reporter and was promoted to his current position of senior writer in October 2000. He is also a contributor to Fox Sports television, where he does insider segments, essays, and longform video stories. Wahl's last book, The Beckham Experiment, was the first soccer book to make the New York Times Best-Seller List.


"Marrying first-rate reportage with stylish writing, Grant Wahl demonstrates why he's considered the dean of U.S. soccer writing--a master of modern soccer, so to speak. This book has the weight and depth to appeal to hardcores, and the smart analysis to captivate the casual fan. Soccer's answer to Men at Work."

"Grant Wahl is a master of modern soccer writing and this book is a Rosetta stone for anyone who wants to fully understand the contemporary game. It's a user's manual to how the game is (or ought to be) played, coached, managed, and watched. Everyone interested in soccer--fans, youth coaches, even top professionals--will gain fascinating insights from some of the game's finest craftsmen, one of whom is Wahl himself."
--STEVE RUSHIN, AUTHOR OF STING-RAY AFTERNOONS AND COLUMNIST FOR SPORTS ILLUSTRATED "I started it taking off at LAX and finished it landing at JFK. It's an incredible peek behind the curtain into the way players, coaches, and technical directors see themselves and their jobs. These entertaining and candid profiles help explain some of the complexities and mysteries of the beautiful game and the people who inhabit it."
--ALEXI LALAS "Reading Grant Wahl on soccer is always a pleasure. Hardly anyone else gets so much ac cess to players, thinks so hard about what he hears, and tells it so well. No hype here--just insights into top-class professionals, by a top-class professional."
