Barca: A People’s Passion – Reviews

“Burns’ examination of the club’s fates and fortunes always goes well beyond the game itself … Burns is a brilliant journalist … Unmissable” Total Football

“Anyone who really wants to know Barcelona should read Burns. A cracker – part sports book, part travelogue” Daily Mirror

“Burns’ strength lies not just in his compulsive, well-told story of the club’s evolution, but his notable grasp of Catalan history…Examines the political subtext of what goes on within and around the football club itself…Brings the characters to vigorous life,” 
Sunday Times

“FC Catalonia could scarcely have wished for a more thorough but sympathetic chronicler,”
Ian Hamilton, Sunday Telegraph

Daily Telegraph

“Through interviews with players, managers and fans, Burns produces an exhaustive account of FC Barcelona and the unique passion it inspires among its fanatical support.” 
Heat magazine

“Anyone who really wants to know Barcelona should read Burns. A cracker, part sports book, part travelogue, the boy done good.” 
Daily Mirror

“A masterpiece. Meticulously researched…It deals with complex issues while all the time keeping an eye on the ball. A huge feat has been accomplished.” 
Emma Lindsay, BBC Choice

“Best sports book of the year.” 
Andersontown News, Belfast

“From its foundation, Barca has been, in an endlessly repeated slogan ‘more than a club’, and this excellent book has to be more than a football history.”
