Italia 90 was, in a sense, the first and the last World Cup. It was also the best and worst World Cup. It was football stood at a junction. It was the World Cup of Gazza's tears and Nessun Dorma, a grand spectacle of colour and drama that made football suddenly fashionable again - at least among the wider English public (and salivating television executives). Yet it was also a World Cup low on goals and high on fouls which led to the re-writing of football's rulebook.

Review:
Praise for World in Motion:

"The book is full of countless nuggets."
- buzz.ie

"Hart's biography of this pivotal tournament is both gripping and articulate. It takes the reader on a journey through each team's experience of Italia '90, as told by the people who were there. Make sure World in Motion is on your reading list this summer."
- Gentleman Ultra

"The result is an absolutely gripping and brilliantly articulated journey through each team's experience of Italia '90. It's the definitive biography of the tournament."
- Outside Write

"Many of the anecdotes are illuminating and entertaining and that is where the book's heart actually lies."
-The Football Book Reviews

"It's an eye-opener to be reminded of how very different things were. It feels like yesterday, but it feels like another universe as well. This book does a glorious job of taking us back there, and I enjoyed every page of it." --- Pete Davies, Author of All Played Out
