Gunter  Gebauer - Life in 90 Minutes


The new book by Germany's most famous sports philosopher

Why is it that in soccer you are not allowed to use your hands but instead have to communicate with the weaker part of your body, your feet? How do the best teams come to this natural way of understanding? Why can even the tiniest mistake turn a game? And if you look at the crowds, how come that total strangers end up in each other's arms in joy at their team's victory?

The famous sports philosopher Gunter Gebauer loves this sport and he has developed a philosophy of soccer that gives not a better understanding of the game, but a different one.
