Sophie Gilbert’s brief review of Simon Doonan’s new book Soccer Style: The Magic and Madness. Gilbert explains that Doonan is clearly biased towards the flashy nature of these off-duty athletes, with the book serving as “less measured historical analysis than zingy reader’s guide.” However, Gilbert (through Doonan) offers some fun insights into how soccer stars have evolved into glamorous figures over the past few decades.
