Nick Hornby has been a soccer fan since the moment he was conceived. Fever Pitch is his tribute to a lifelong obsession. Part autobiography, part comedy, part incisive analysis of insanity, Hornby's award-winning memoir captures the fever pitch of fandom—its agony and ecstasy, its community, its defining role in thousands of young men's coming of age stories.

5.0 Fever Pitch
I wish I could give this book more than five stars. Hornby is an incredible writer and he explains his obsession and many of what I'd call the 'fringe aspects' of the game and the culture so eloquently.
