More than a club? More than a book about football

This is one of the best football books I've read. I've learned more about the culture and history of Spain from reading this than I have from reading history books about the country. Brilliant. I was engaged from start to finish

Loved this

This is a very readable book that covers a lot of ground in an immensely entertaining and personal way.

Brilliant book, almost ruined by a terrible read

This is a brilliant book, well researched and entertaining. Guillem Balague's knowledge and passion for the game is key to it's success, as well as the richness of the individual written about. But this is not a good reading, boring and very few pronunciations were correct

An incredible reading of an incredible book. Beautifully tragic and uplifting in equal measures. I was captivated from start to finish

I love the author, his work and the field in which he researches and writes. But this is a rehash of everything I've read before. He's done much better work than this but it's a good basic intro

Great listen

A light look at big data research, it's benefits and drawbacks, with some really interesting insights. Another reminder that correlation doesn't imply causation.

An epic triumph

This a far reaching, ambitious exploration of parents, children and all our searches for identity including the author, who is honest about his own journey. Brilliant and well worth the commitment of 40hrs listening.

A treat, every minute of it.

Beautifully and passionately read by one of Britain's greatest female voices. I can't think of a better narrator for such an important issue

Great introduction to the subject

If you are familiar with Brene Brown's work, then this is much of what you will have already read. Still good
