KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a book which can be recommended on one ground only, it's reasonable accuracy on the technical side of its football background. Beyond that point, it seems to us a book that glorifies one gesture of fair play over and above a history of pettiness, egotism and false pride. The story of a spoiled rich boy who is sent to a school to be ""toughened"": of how his football playing is his sole redeeming feature and of how he gets away with it, or almost. A bad lesson in team play, both from boy and coaching angle.
