Ben Lyttleton is a football consultant and author.
His first book for children Football School: Where Football Explains The World, co-written with Alex Bellos, was nominated for the Blue Peter Book Award 2017. The book is aimed at 8-12 year olds. Ben knows far too much about national anthems, footballers salaries, and why rain makes Brazilians so skilful. He is obsessed with the most famous goat in Germany, Hennes VIII, who is the FC Cologne team mascot.
Ben also wrote Twelve Yards: The Art and Psychology of the Perfect Penalty. He works with football clubs and national teams to help improve their penalty performance. His new book, EDGE: What Business Can Learn From Football, will be published in September.
