A Beautiful Game: The World’s Greatest Players and How Soccer Changed Their Lives

From Tom Watt, author of My Side, the best-selling autobiography of David Beckham, comes A Beautiful Game. Combining stunning photographs with the world’s greatest players sharing their personal stories of how soccer transformed their lives, this inspiring book is an intoxicating celebration of the “beautiful game.” Available in time for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The game is the big star The bigger picture this book paints of how the game affects lives, all over the world, in profound ways is what is most impressive. The photographs are moving and interweave brilliantly with the short biographies of world famous professionals. Stories from tiny countries to the worlds super powers help you get a sense of what this game represents globally. I suppose it could be any sport, soccer happens to be the most popular game all over the world for good reason: it’s simplicity plus it is a universal language. It has a massive impact on lives.My son loves this book and loves to learn about some of his favorite players. The stories are short and you don’t need to read it from front to back. Easy to pick up and flip through for a few moments, gives the reader a real sense of some far away land. It truly is a moving book for anyone, not just a soccer fan

Excellent book for a young soccer fan I bought this for my son’s birthday (15). I got a brief chance to look through it before and was impressed with the whole thing. I do plan to go back and read it all. He loves it and has commented a few times how much he likes it and thanked me more than once! He said he has read it through 3 times. He loves the game and this was just a great way to get more info on players he loves and some he doesn’t. You won’t be disappointed whether for you or as a gift.
