This is a brilliant encyclopaedia with a vibrantly fresh format featuring facts right from the birth of football to football terminology to current day football, including FIFA. The layout and the visuals and illustrations are vivid and bright which makes the book appealing. The cover is attractive and appealing. As the book has been published in late 2017, the facts are also up to date and relevant. This book is recommended! It has become one of my firm favourites.

This is a beautifully illustrated book all about football - certainly a good time with the World Cup on to take a deeper dive into the world of football. This book covers all aspects including the history of the game, rules, different countries and my son's favourite part, "how to" on passing, striking and saving goals. 

The photos are up to date and current and it's a book both my children have dipped in and out of and read different pages each time. 

I would recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn more about football and is a very useful reference guide for any parents or carers who need to brush up on their football knowledge!

I loved this hardback edition, and the size of the book really appealed to me as I love encyclopaedia's of any kind. I found I did know quite a lot of the facts already that were in this book, but I do read a lot and pick up lots of different facts from everywhere. it was great to have a whole book of football knowledge in one place though, and I have flicked though and read certain parts again since reading it all the way through. The size of the book, the layout, and design are all fantastic, and really appeal to the viewer. Overall I would definitely recommend this this book, and my younger brother is now reading it.

Excellent book with a cool lenticular cover. The book charts the history of football from ancient times to the modern game including all the latest rules and technology used. My son isn't a massive football fan but there was plenty to keep him gripped at the height of World Cup fever. There are loads of stats and info is well presented and easy to read plus the photography is very good. This book won't date quickly like many other football books.
The index is full of mistakes though!

This book had really good facts and gave me lots of information that I did not know before.  It tells you about men and women's football.  It looks nice and has lots of pictures which makes it a good book to look at and read it just when you feel like it.  Very good for any football fans.
