    1. Good bare bones history of the team. No frills, no extra details. It gives a rundown of all the major tournament games throughout the years and little pieces of background on certain players and coaches.

    2. Dalton PhillipsThe U.S. Women’s Soccer Team: An American Success StoryWritten by Clemente Angelo Lisi The author wrote the book to describe the journey of the Women’s National team. The journey of a team that no one really knew to a team that became the world’s greatest women’s soccer team. The author wants you to realize that no matter your age; if you put your mind to it, you can be as good as or better than someone who is what you are trying to become. Hard work and determinatio [...]

    3. I really liked this book a lot. It really showed how women's soccer started and it showed how they were as a team from 1990 to 2011. They started off as a very good team and stayed like that most of there journey. They did lose a couple of good players along the way but they got very good coaches who knew what positions to assign the players. I really liked how they told you about the stand out players careers and what their life was like now. I rated this book five stars and recommend it to soc [...]

    4. I won this through LT's Early Reviewer Program.If you know nothing about US Women's Soccer then it could be helpful, but really to me, who lived through it it was just boring. There was no theme through the book, no story to follow, nothing to hold the book together as a whole instead of separate chaptersI read the second edition of the book which goes through the horrendous end to the 2011 World Cup and awesomeness end to the 2012 London Olympics.Oh, and it got an extra star, 'cause, well it wa [...]

    5. I love our U.S. Women's National Soccer Team, and I think this book does a good job covering essentially the entire history of the program (it was clear and concise). However, I definitely would've liked to have read more athlete spotlights, including one on Carin Jennings-Gabarra, one of my all-time favorite players, who made huge contributions to the sport.

    6. Not so insightful recap of team history, with little original work. Not written all that well and not recommended.
