Introducing World Cup Moments

Post by anointed »

Hi, all. I trust everyone is doing great.

It's truly been a while though I've been popping in and out of the site.

Will like to introduce my book World Cup Moments to y'all.
It's just the Vol. 1 and still an ebook at the moment and is available
on Amazon.

Image


World Cup Moments is an eclectic and electric harvest of fascinating FIFA World
Cup stories, data, statistics, records, dramas, conspiracy theories, trivia, tales, comedies
and politics from the scenes and behind the scenes in lucid prose.


I most earnestly covet your patronage and, more importantly, reviews as
the Vol. 2 is in the works.

Amazon:


If you want to make purchase in Naija's famous currency:

More on the book in this synopsis:

Each chapter of World Cup Moments represents an Episode of the World Cup finals and each Episode has a sub-title. So, the 1930 World Cup is Episode 1, with the sub-title: …In the Beginning. For chapter 2, though, the 1934 and 1938 editions are chronicled together in a chapter. It is the only chapter that bucks the trend. So chapter 2 marries Episodes 2 and 3 and sub-titled …the Beginning of the Future and the Calm before the Storm of War.

World Cup Moments goes a long way to create an interaction with, not just the football, but the universal set of histories revolving around it. For example, Episodes 1 and 8 go back in time to track the history of organized football. Mention is made of the first international football fixture between England and Scotland in 1872. Likewise are citations of how The FA came to be, International Football Association Board’s inauguration, the writing of The Laws of the Game, hosting of Lipton Cup, formation of FIFA etc in Episode 1. World Cup Moments digs to the root of how nuances like catenaccio, total football et al came into being.

There are also snippets of how key inventions shaped each decade in aviation, information technology, telecommunications, healthcare and other key spheres, especially as these inventions played roles in the way the FIFA World Cup was hosted. There is politics vis-à-vis within FIFA and outside FIFA i.e international politics as they impacted on FIFA and football. Not least are the two World Wars. Major World Cup protagonists like Jules Rimet, Pele, Carlos Dittborn, Diego Maradona etc are enunciated. World Cup Moments will introduce millions of young football fans worldwide to happenstances like Maracanzo, Lula di Tardelli etc.

At the end of each Episode, there are tables showing all the World Cup matches of that edition, with data on the final scores, all scorers, venues, attendances and referees.
TOUCH NOT MY ANOINTED...
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding...hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe

THERE WAS A COUNTRY...

President Mohammadu Cellular,

Many thanks.

It is universal but I believe the younger generation who fell in love
with football in the wake of Kanu's arrival at Arsenal, Roman's purchase
of Chelsea etc should aspire to read it, to discover that football has come
a long way. In the same vein, the older generation needs to relive memories
that are in oblivion and even get to know stuff that were going on behind
the scenes back in the day.

The difficulties of statistical thinking describes a puzzling limitation of our mind: our excessive confidence in what we believe we know, and our apparent inability to acknowledge the full extent of our ignorance and the uncertainty of the world we live in.
