The Joy, Madness and Meaning of Soccer. Includes the World Cup 2010 review. John Doyle fell in love with the game as a child and never looked back. This is the enchanting and exhilarating story of his odyssey through the world of soccer so far. It begins with the first game John saw, in repressed 1960s-era Ireland and tours through soccer in the 21st century. 'The World is a Ball' is an insightful and thought-provoking vision of the beautiful game, which for some is more a religion than a sport: a sacred zone where colonized nations can triumph over their colonizers, the poor a rich in the pleasure of play, and for ninety minutes, anything seems possible.
