Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Hm, don't think I need to say much about it. Came actually expecting cheesy and cheap stuff, but had actually none of that. Guess the title is spot on for a lot of things, eh?

Soccernomics by Simon Kuper.
Some interesting stuff, but some of it was also complete nonsense that shows while you should quantify some things in sports, others really can't be.

Red: My autobiography by Gary Neville.
His time in Manchester United. Covers more than 20 years in the club. Pretty good, made me like United more. Doesn't pull punches.

This is the One: Sir Alex Ferguson: The Uncut Story of a Football Genius by Daniel Taylor.
The manager of United. For all the pomp in the title, it just covers like 3 seasons out of his 27. Pretty good material, but misleading in expectations.
Slow and steady wins the race.
