the world cup seems to be what everyone's talking about these days.
and thanks to this little book, i know why.
this is a highly-recommended read.
i ventured my way through it last summer, and it really does offer a fascinating explanation of the world & globalization.
soccer means a great deal more to the rest of the world than it does to most americans.
at parts, it is a wee bit slow-moving, but i promise, it is well worth it in the end.
so czech it out!
also: please note that i am writing this on my brand new macbook pro.
yes, it is beautiful.
