Reviews

A thoroughly researched dual biography by the great Jimmy Burns -- Simon Kuper, author of The Football Men
I am eating up this book. The verve with which Burns writes about the power politics and rich supporting characters like Florentino and Ferguson makes it a captivating read. -- Richard Fitzpatrick, author of El Clasico: Barcelona v Real Madrid, Football's Greatest Rivalry
Praise for La Roja: There is so much people don't know about Spain and Spanish football, and that is not a bad thing for as long as a complete writer like Jimmy Burns brings his unique vision to it. La Roja fills a hole in the knowledge of both Spain and Spanish football, as it goes beyond the football to explain a country, a society and its transformation through, thanks to and despite the beautiful game. -- Guillem Balague, author of Brave New World: Inside Pochettino's Spurs
Praise for Maradona: The Hand of God: Those who have an interest in the sociology of football, in modern Argentina and in the "story behind the headlines" will admire Burns' disturbing book which easily transcends the normal confines of sports journalism. * The Economist *
Praise for Barcelona: A People's Passion: Burns' strength lies not just in his compulsive, well-told story of the club's evolution, but his notable grasp of Catalan history. * Sunday Times *
