The Language of the Game
by Laurent Dubois. Read by Chris MacDonnell
How to Understand Soccer

Just in time for the 2018 World Cup, The Language of the Game is a lively and lyrical guide to appreciating the drama of soccer

Soccer is not only the world’s most popular sport; it’s also one of the most widely shared forms of global culture. The Language of the Game is a passionate and engaging introduction to soccer’s history, tactics, and human drama. Profiling soccer’s full cast of characters–goalies and position players, referees and managers, commentators and fans–historian and soccer scholar Laurent Dubois describes how the game’s low scores, relentless motion, and spectacular individual performances combine to turn each match into a unique and unpredictable story. He also shows how soccer’s global reach makes it an unparalleled theater for nationalism, international conflict, and human interconnectedness.

Filled with perceptive insights and stories both legendary and little known, The Language of the Game is a rewarding read for anyone seeking to understand soccer better.
