Soccer has gotten a boost with the recent World Cup finals, and for those who want to brush up on the basics or learn about the sport's stars, this entry in the Greatest Sports Heroes series will help. One thing that will strike readers right away is how easy the book is to read. The dark typeface stands out crisply against a pure white background. The color photos, too, seem particularly crisp. The writing, however, tries to be a little too bright, with unnecessary exclamation points. The book begins with a simple explanation of the game and follows with several-page-long profiles of players including David Beckham, Freddy Adu, and Kristine Lilly. Particularly good are the lists of Web sites and organizations that will lead fans further into the sport. Ilene Cooper
