A passage into the beautiful game with Middle Eastern accent!
Every person on this planet is ultimately required to learn about life from another human being, and somebody inspires us all in this life time one way or the other.
The first few years of our being is all about learning the basics and our habits and behavior become more sophisticated and refined, as we grow older.
This continuous learning process is an inevitable part of our existence and it's through the same system that our character and quality is shaped indiscriminately.
Most people look up to their parents or siblings for inspiration, but not me!
Being the only child of workaholic parents, I had to look for this motivation elsewhere.
I found mine in a different kind of family.
I discovered my inspiration in football!
From playing plastic balls in narrow alleys of my old neighborhood in Tehran, to reporting the game from behind the media desks of the world cup, it all has been one enormous occurrence that I will gladly share with you here.
Hope you enjoy these epigrammatic, yet, avid accounts as much as I have.
"Some people believe that football is a matter of life and death. I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you that it is much, much more important than that." - Bill Shankly
***No sport has experienced such a tremendous growth in popularity in the U.S. in the past few years as soccer. Soccer is now played everywhere around the globe.
This book has been written to present the experience of a man over the years.
The knowledge gained has been and will continue to be tested as new ideas emerge and changes occur.
Nader is the maker of his own fortune.
Soccer is an intriguing game.
There is nothing like an exciting run, a great feint, an accurate pass, a good shot, a brilliant save or a dazzling goal...
The goal of this book is to provide you with verbal and visual imagery to recall and adopt.
I strongly believe that the author has scored on all accounts.
