An American Soccer Dream walks through the trials and tribulations of retooling the United States National Soccer Program. Using many resources -- previously untapped talent pools, an array of underutilized ethnic soccer clubs, the power of technology and one of the best sports marketers - two friends - one a foot soldier in the national soccer federation and another a technology professional with a love of the game - work tirelessly to implement their vision. An American Soccer Dream chronicles the team's exploits, traveling the streets of America and beyond, detailing efforts to raise an organization to new heights, and winding their way throughout North and Central America before the team's journey ultimately concludes at the World Cup Finals in Brazil in the June of 2014. But as the players and coaches travel this road together -- something even more special is sparked -- a spirit and kinship of family which brings together this set of diverse human beings.

    Love the book, could not put it down. So interesting to learn about the different ways to build and construct a program ... and the manner in which the analogies were drawn to relate soccer to more mainstream American sports stars, teams and situations really helped a soccer novice like me relate better to the sport. Highly recommend.

    Someone should send a copy to Sunil Gulati. It provides good direction. If we spent more time players/talent/training and less begging for the World Cup and obsessing over coaching changes we'd be better off.

    Comprehensive book. Actually almost 2 books in one – first part the remaking of the USSF and the MNT, second part a sports book going through games and tournaments in detail. Lots of soccer tactics/historical references/modern-day analogies. Interest application of American sports approaches/strategies to game of soccer. I recommend.
