The Anatomy of Football is about football development from its origins through a timeline to its present state. Given such backgrounds, the society from which it germinated and got nurtured is portrayed well in the picture in a way that makes the book relevant even to readers who do not take the game seriously.

You can trust the author to include all interests and take along sports lovers in general, as the philosophies and mindsets describe will be similar and equally interesting for other disciplines and in life in general.

To guide the reader's perspective, the glance of the laws governing the game, a look the perception of football in general leads the line of thought into how decision-making processes begin with sprouting sparkle and desire to do well, and in a certain way.

The subject at always at the heart of the author is the science of football and what part it plays. There is a look at the role of technology as well as dissection of each component of the game.

Examples of known facts and footballing greats of the past and present makes it even more exciting. There are points and opinions to look at from different leagues around the world.

What makes the book more enjoyable is the easy to read language and everyday concept used to illustrate the points

being made, and of course as said before, that the principles given can be applied in real life situations outside football or sports in general.

You can bet on the entertainment value, as the follower of e-Diski Blog, and so much food for thought as you will be challenged to think in other terms on almost anything in life after reading the book.

With the technical sporting ideas and concepts, it is surprisingly easy to the mind that one does not feel they are reading a coaching manual, but then, coaches and those in positions of power, will feel much equipped to face their challenges in the game with much gusto.

Looking at all the aspects of how to communicate, how to control the situation under different circumstances as well as building one's success, ardent fans and supporters will begin to appreciate their club coaches' decisions, or criticise from an educated view point.

The whole appreciation of sports in general is taken to another level and as you will realise, even an approach to one's lifestyle can benefit positively just by following the ideas being put across.

The Anatomy of Football was written in a mentality changing attitude that will make good coaches very good, average ones good and poor ones average. It will not surprising that a single simple concept will actually turn a poor one into a world beater, trust me.

It is easier to note the level of the author's understanding of the game, having worked with toddlers, amateurs and professionals for a long time, and went on to work with those who work with national teams.

Last but not least, he draws out an ideal situation of a team, worst case scenarios and the dos and don'ts of the modern game. That aspects also covers the most interesting part of how professional clubs run their affairs, from the English Premiership, Serie A, Bundesliga to La Liga.

The book is available as a hard-copy from Amazon (The Anatomy of Football) for $7, who will print on demand and ship at a cost. Specials are available from time to time from the dealership prices as well as on shipping costs. It can be purchased as an electronic copy on Kindle.
