This is such a fascinating book, I can't recommend it highly enough.

It's non-fiction, but it explains exactly why I find football so fascinating when I didn't realise why myself. It's all to do with mythology and emotion and heroes and morality. He covers all sports and it's helped explain why some people don't read fiction at all and that always used to puzzle me.

I hope it helps me write better too as he often talks about how he writes his articles and it's not so dissimilar from writing fiction.
