EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT! Soccology, the invaluable guide for the modern footballer that contains lessons from the beautiful game in how to be the best versions of ourselves– is now set to be available as audiobook via Audible: December 13th.

Don’t have time to sit down and pick up a book? Don’t worry, we’ve got you this Christmas! Take a break from the stress of shopping, decorating and waiting around for delayed trains by tuning into Soccology, from the comfort of your own devices.

Kevin George, author of Soccology, spent eight years as a professional footballer, including for clubs such as West Ham United and Charlton Athletic FC. After retiring as a professional footballer, Kevin used his experience and insight to develop Soccology, a human performance programme that has been widely endorsed by key footballing and sports figures around the world.

Kevin regularly works with prisons and schools on conflict resolution and the Soccology programme has been delivered across all Premier League football clubs. He is a passionate advocate for how understanding human behaviour can have a significant impact on decision making both on and off the pitch.

“Kevin has used his experiences as a young professional football player to challenge traditional practices and views for the betterment of the young people he works with, encouraging them to take control of their own lives to make the best of life’s opportunities.” – Martyn Heather, Head of Education at the Premier League

Ashley Hickson-Lovence reads from his debut novel THE 392

Set entirely on a London bus travelling from Hoxton to Highbury and taking place over just 36 minutes, the events of The 392 unfold through a cast of charismatic characters coming from very different worlds, but tied together through a shared suspicion as the threat of terrorism looms. On the 392 are all the familiar faces you might expect to see on any bus ride through inner-city London in the grips of gentrification: delinquent school kids, the high-flyers, the weird, the wonderful and the homeless. The 392 is primarily about uncovering the passengers’ hidden stories; agendas and ambitions. Switching between the different perspectives powerfully places the reader in the shoes of each character as they observe and make their way to work, school or court. Ultimately The 392 is a novel about people, places and perceptions.
