Miracle of Castel di Sangro

Got this from my book-a-day calendar. Anyone read this? Is it good?

Journalist Joe McGinniss goes to Italy to follow a scrappy soccer team from the downtrodden village of Castel di Sangro as it beats all odds and rises to the top of Italy’s soccer heap. With what the Dallas Morning News calls “the stuff of Italian opera—passion, buffoonery, courage, treachery, and tragedy,” McGinniss recounts the minor-league team’s journey with humor and poignancy. You don’t need to be a soccer nut—or even a sports fan—to find this underdog story hilarious and uplifting.
