Raphael Honigstein charts the return of German football from the international wilderness of the late 1990s to Mario Götze's moment of genius in the 2014 World Cup final and asks how did this come about? How did German football reinvent itself away from its efficient, but unappealing and defensively minded past to the free-flowing, attack-minded football that was on display in 2014? The answer takes him from California to Stuttgart, from Munich to the Maracaná, via Dortmund and Amsterdam. Packed with exclusive interviews with the key protagonists, Honigstein's book lifts the lid on the secrets of German football's success.
