'A compendious but vividly entertaining history of the League.' -- Independent on Sunday
'Rock 'n' Roll Soccer is a compelling yomp through the tales that really made the NASL unique, from the 35-yard-line shootout tiebreaker to the Minnesota Kicks' legendary tailgates. There's been nothing like the NASL since, and Plenderleith captures it very well indeed.' * Inbedwithmaradona *
'A brilliant and necessary read.'
'Ian Plenderleith's rip-roaring Rock 'n' Roll Soccer is an account of the 1970s North American Soccer League which serves as a warning of what happens when football chooses to be simply a branch of a global entertainment industry and forgets where it came from on the way.' -- Mark Perryman * Beyond the Froth *
'This gem of a book is an excellent cultural document of sports and deserves to be read widely (and enjoyed) by even the most jaded of footy fans.' -- Cliff Shepard * Bertrams Magazine Review *
