    One thought on “The Beautiful Game: Sixteen Girls and the Soccer Season That Changed Everything”

    1. I just finished this book. I had originally purchased it for my 10 year old soccer-playing daughter (NWO div.3--so this Santa Rosa story is literally in our backyard). She inhaled the book in a couple of days and I wanted to read it as well. First of all, it's a great story. Very inspirational for young athletes, coaches and parents. The story-telling however is lacking. I appreciate the author wanting to get the girls' (players')perspectivesever it is done in such a way that it is difficult to [...]

    2. The Beautiful Game by Jonathan Littman was a great book. This book is about pursuing your dreams and never giving up. A few girls did not make the soccer team they wanted because of their personal set backs. Including speed, height and aggressiveness. The girls worked very hard that year on getting better at those things and tried out for the same team the next year and made it. This shows that if you want something, you just have to work hard for it and you will get it. I recommend this book to [...]

    3. The book "The Beautiful Game" by Jonathan Littmanis is about a girls soccer team called "Thunder". They had a coach that expected very littlw of them. When a new coach (Emiria Salmann), that came from college she took over the team ans showed them what it took to win. They tranied very hard, some girls puckes after practices. Some of the girls stared not to like her. The team was made up of many diffrent girls that had multiple personalities and didnt agreed with Emiria's traing, but what they d [...]

    4. In his non- fiction book, "The Beautiful Soccer Game", Jonathan Littman describes that determination is a strong key point to being a soccer player. Emiria Salzman their first woman coach that brought them pain, sweat and tears. Never gave up on them or herself. Littman supports this work by rejoicing the discipline, thriving on the completion and making themselves Northern California State champions. Jonathan purpose is to tell the reader that even though the girls didn't have a great record an [...]

    5. Some of the books i read i does not compare to this one. it have a little of everything comedy sadness. this book i recomended for people that lioke books that contain sadness.i really enjoy this book

    6. Loved this book. It grabbed my attention early and never let go. An inspiring, but very human story of a rookie coach, the girls she coached, and the magical team that they created. The team that every coach really wants to create every year.I might start making my athletes read this book.

    7. One of my favorite "sports" books. Great for coaches and YA/MG female athletes. A re-read every soccer or season or two to get geared up for the season ahead.
