Guest Review: Encyclopaedia of World Football By Tim Hill

Review: This is a compilation of people, clubs and countries involved in association football throughout the world. Published in 2010, and therefore somewhat outdated, it gives short biographies and histories of famous players, managers, clubs, countries and major competitions.

The book is very detailed and is illustrated throughout with excellent photographs. I found the chapters on clubs and countries particularly interesting, providing their histories and the honours won. As intimated above, the chapter on heroes of the modern game is now out of date.

As a weighty tome on the history of the beautiful game, this is a detailed and well-illustrated entry. It should appeal to all fans of the game, and is also a good introduction to readers new to the sport.
