Brazil: A Century of World Cup Football is:

A critical analysis and comparison of the play of Brazil, Germany and Italy in the World Cup.
A comprehensive appraisal of football's two greatest players - Pele and Maradona - goal for goal; skill for skill; and championships won for championships won.
Relive the philosophy, decent conduct and tactics, and the beautiful football that made Pele, Brazil and soccer so popular all over the world.
When excerpts from the book were published in newspapers in Nigeria; Canada; Turkey; Ghana; Kenya; Cameroon; South Africa; and Egypt, there were reports of widespread joy and excitement amongst those who read.
That joy and excitement, which only the highest calibre of World Cup play can elicit - as it was in 1958, 1962, 1970, and 1994 - reverberate through every page of this book. This is what we expect from Brazil at South Africa 2010.
