Very timely, since the Euro is currently in progress. And a must read if you are unfortunate enough to be an England fan ;o)
This book was captivating. I had never thought about a correlation of a national squad captain and the sign of the times. Colin does a great job and portraying each of the four captains, and showing how the character of the nation changed over time, and how each captain was an embodiment of those times.
At first glance, you see the four names and don’t see anything in common, and yet as you read the book, you see how true his theory is. Fascinating read.
