How Soccer Explains The World

I picked this book up last month.... has anyone else read it? It's a book about globalization from the point of view of soccer. It was really good read. Just thought I'd recommend a little literature around here.

I believe we discussed this book awhile back. Agree that it provides an interesting perspective of framing soccer as it influences, and is influenced by, society and the greater world. I particularly remember the chapter on the Nigerians and how it related to outsourcing; cheaper, more efficient, labour; how Nigerians became the "must have" foreigners for Eastern European teams.

Definitely thought provoking.
