" 80 years of World Cup games crammed into 100 pages. Too many scores and winners and not enough personal stories for me to connect with this book well. " said.

" Good overall review of the World Cup and history of the sport. " said.

" Very plodding. Lots of facts. Easy read for kids maybe that is why they love them, but I doubt this series (if this book is any indication) will foster a love of reading. " said.

" Learned some new and fascinating things about the World Cup (that I didn't know much about to begin with). Bader highlights historical context as well as famous players and shares a bit about football (yes, I think we should get right with the world and call it football). Another well-rounded nonfiction book in this What is/what are? series. " said.

"In just over one hundred pages, this provides an efficient introduction to the World Cup soccer competition that is held every four years. Some of the most dramatic competitions and rivalries are highlighted, FIFA’s role as a governing body is explained, past and recent controversies FIFA has faced are included, and major soccer personalities are introduced, such as Pele who gets a whole chapter. Numerous black and white sketches appear throughout and sixteen pages of photos showing World Cup events from 1930 to 2014 are grouped in the center. End pages contain a chart of winners and host countries, timelines of the World Cup and world events, and a short bibliography." said.
