Holiday Book Recommendations
The Holiday Season is upon us, and nothing makes a better gift for an American footy fan than an insightful and analytical book about the beautiful game.
The following ten football books are the official recommendations of TKR’s Editor, Kartik Krishnaiyer. Most of these works weave politics, societal issues and football together and serve as an education portrait of either a forgone era or the state of play in parts of the world American fans may not be familiar with.
