The Soccer Book illustrates every aspect of the sport in great detail, from the history of the game to how it's played — the rules, field of play, players, officials, clothing, and equipment. Eye-catching artwork and jargon-free text clearly explain every aspect of the game, such as the correct setup of a defensive wall and the often confusing permutations of the offside rule.

Players will learn core skills, with each technique presented in step-by-step detail. Profiles of international soccer stars provide insider tips, and practice drills are included so players can hone their techniques.

Coaches will find principles and drills for team play, from advanced tricks and skills, defensive strategies and set-piece play to team formations and playing styles. Plus The Soccer Book outlines coaching theory and practice, explains the psychology and management of coaching players, and details training routines and programs, match-preparation, and officiating. The final chapter covers soccer injuries and their prevention and treatment.

Whether you want to bend it like Beckham or dribble like Ronaldinho, this revised edition of The Soccer Book is the ultimate visual guide to soccer skills, rules, tactics, and coaching.
