It was a World Cup like no other. And author Steve Kaffen (Russia 1994-96) should know,this being his seventh.

The grand display of exciting matches and outstanding performances, day after day, captivated the world and brought to the sport a new generation of enthusiasts.

It was also a World Cup of camaraderie for the fans in Qatar and those who gathered at homes and in venues all over the world to share the soccer experience. The author takes the reader to the event as a fan, attending matches with some of the best teams, taking in the 24-hour energy, and exploring Qatar’s rich history. Some 400 original photos complement the extensive narrative and stories from the author’s seven World Cups, so called “Cup Tales.” Come along for the action, the camaraderie, the joy, and the fun!
