The American Fan's World Cup Handbook is a must-have for any American sports fan who plans on watching the 2010 FIFA World Cup, but doesn't usually watch any other soccer. This handbook has all the information you need to become a true soccer fan. Included is a section about the many differences between soccer and the major American sports, and a section that will help you understand soccer's unique lingo. The handbook will walk you through the maze that is the World Cup, first detailing how the field of 32 is determined from 204 entrants, and then how the tournament progresses once the field of 32 is set. The handbook also includes space to record your predictions so you can test your judgement against your friends and the tournament results.
