Awesome book! I especially like it because it is about soccer, my favorite sport. I found most of the "Ben's Top Ten Tips for Soccer Players" useful. I especially liked this book because in most soccer or sports books, if they are in the final game, it's always so tough but they ALWAYS win. Well in this book, Ben's team tried hard, and yes it was tough, but they lost the finals. So it gives the message that you won't always win even if you try hard. You just have to keep practicing more until you finally do. (as said by Loop, a character in this book.) I found that great, because sometimes you win, but sometimes you don't! You can't always win even if you try your hardest. What matters is that you tried your best, and I know everyone has heard this before, but it really is true, have fun. Must read this book! :)
