Review
Gr 3-6 –In a book designed to improve the skills of intermediate players, Saunders spends very little time describing the playing field or the rules of the game. Rather, the emphasis is on differentiating between types of soccer skills, such as perfecting a “chip pass” or a “driven pass.” The author delineates ways to turn or change the direction of the ball, demonstrating with both text and colorful step-by-step photographs how to execute an inside or outside hook on the ball, make a stop turn, or make one of Johan Cruyff’s signature turns. A few thumbnail tip boxes point out facts about influential players or teams. In a field glutted with books, this title stands out as worth considering for experienced players.–Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA --Blair Christolon (Reviewed July 1, 2006) (School Library Journal, vol 52, issue 7, p123)
