If you love futbol (soccer) and find the Netherlands interesting, as I do, this rates 4 stars. Deduct a star for each of those interests you don't share with me. At it's best this book describes the Dutch philosophy of total football and it's beauty and finds paralells with the Dutch social philosophy. At it's worst, it gets a little repetitive in going over certain moments over and over again. Winner's research was exhaustive and reveals a lot about the Dutch character, although I recommend a grain of salt with his most emphatic conclusion.
