This set is described as a chronological sports-pages account of the World Cup soccer tournaments through 2002. The last tournament was added after original publication, and perhaps this year's competition will be added to a later edition. The coverage is "British-centric," but the lively writing and clear, quick reading make it enjoyable to anyone with even a passing interest in "football." It's full of amusing and interesting anecdotes and historical facts. Audio production is outstanding, with each tournament marked by music suggestive of the host country. Another audiobook bonus is an extensive reminiscence by English soccer hero Sir Bobby Charlton. T.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
