Kirschbaum provides a welcome sketch of Klinsmann, a thoughtful man of the world who has for years lived in California and who cannot be pigeonholed as merely a European trying to remake American soccer in the Old World image.
Book description from amazon.com:
A GAME-CHANGING AND FASCINATING BOOK ON HOW TO USE WISDOM FROM AROUND THE WORLD TO CREATE A WORLD-CLASS SOCCER TEAM, ABOUT ONE OF THE SPORT’S MOST ICONIC AND EFFECTIVE COACHES Jurgen Klinsmann, head coach of the U.S. men’s national soccer team, has become a household name after the United States’ unprecedentedly strong run at the 2014 World Cup. Klinsmann’s reputation is that of a maverick, of an unconventional leader who isn’t afraid to challenge traditional notions of coaching, and who will breathe new life into foundering programs through sometimes unpopular -but resoundingly successful -new tactics.In Soccer Without Borders, journalist Erik Kirschbaum lays out Klinsmann’s vision for making the U.S. men’s soccer team a dominant world power for the first time in its history. Featuring fascinating insights gleaned from Klinsmann’s decades of dedicated study – both as a professional striker and as coach of the German national team – this book is an immersive and unparalleled road map for how to build a winning team in the most competitive professional sport on the globe, as well as an infectious tribute to “the beautiful game” by one of its most adroit students.
