I haven't read this book, but I got it from someone to release it as a BookCrossing book, so I can't tell you anything about the contents of the book.

Hello finder! If you read this, you have found a travelling book.
Congratulations!
You can read this book, make a note of how you liked the book (it's free and you can stay anonymous if you like) and release it 'in the wild' or pass it on to someone else.
If you want to follow the book on its 'world tour' you'd better register as a new bookcrosser. You could mention my name (Korenwolf) as Referring Member. I would like that very much.

There's an explanation in Dutch at http://www.bookcrossing.nl/ and there's also a Dutch forum http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/15

Have fun reading and bookcrossing!

Thanks Mum for sending me this for the European Cup. I've actually already got it, though not read it yet, so will look out for a good place to release it.

Ok, never mind my previous entry - I read this copy and sent the one I already had out to fly as well.

Great book! I haven't felt so Dutch in years, what a great way to take me home.

Winner artfully links the unique Dutch way (and mainly Ajax - my team!) of playing football to the Dutch culture, and shows how our brilliance and sometime destructiveness on the pitch is in effect an extension of our national personality. It's fun, insightful and immensely readable; the only jarring aspect was that some little snippets seemed to be repeated rather a lot, causing numerous deja-vu moments that interrupted the flow.
