THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD CUP 2010 EDITION

by | Read by Bob Wilson

Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

While the history of soccer's World Cup is summarized chronologically, the players’ stories are not as detailed. Instead, the book focuses on the criticism of referees throughout its examination of the games. Narrator Bob Wilson, a former player, knows the sport and keeps to a steady pace; his clear British accent never wanders into overt excitement or derision. Musical interludes serve as breaks, and an interview with former player Sir Bobby Charlton is included at the end. Soccer fans and World Cup buffs, rejoice. Novices, though, might want to watch a few matches before delving into this history. M.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2010]
