His Brian Clough book is excellent also.
 
Simon Kuper's books are great also
Really good book. Mixture of football and economics.

Behind the Curtain-Jonathan Wilson.Great read for anyone with interest in football from Eastern Europe
This, along with Jimmy Burns La Roja, is on my to read list. His writing is brilliant. He comes across as intelligent and likeable. Inverting the Pyramid is one of my favourite football books.

A must read for any football fan as far as I'm concerned.
 
Nice one. Geting Inverting the pyramid for Christmas

reading Killing Pablo - from the author of Black Hawk Down and charts the rise and fall of El Patron. 

Very intriguing read about how America became embroiled in the hunt for the Cocaine Kingpin and how Pablo Escobar became so powerful that he eventually went from admiration from his people to being public enemy no.1

read it a few years back ,excellent book.he never really lost the support of the ordinary man in Medillian,the americans just pumped so much cash into the operation they couldnt fail.Check out the documentary as well.
Film coming out based on the book,should be brilliant .Christian Bale is linked to play the main CIA dude.

Would it be worth getting the new one or is it mostly all the same stuff?

Jonathan Wilson has a new book out about the history of the goalkeeper called "The Outsider". Should be a decent read.
