    What a wonderful book about a wonderful person For me he is the greatest as not only is he the most gifted midfielder I have ever seen but a true, humble and professional gentleman The book just backs up all I have ever believed about him A real great, honest and nice person who has kept his feet on the ground despite all that he has won and the accolades he continues to get You get a true and honest account of the hardship and torment he went through when he had to leave his parents at the age of 12 Even the pictures show how much has gone into the book with not only the important professional moments like the World cup goal, the Stamford bridge goal, his team mates and the lovely gesture to his friend Dani Jarque but importantly of all his family and friends There is no trashing of anyone like some footballer stories but just an honest portrayal of a good man Anyone who loves the true art of football should read this book and this man acts not only as a model for anyone with talent looking to go into football but also a perfect example of how to conduct your life whether you have talent or not.

    ein tolles Buch von ber einen der besten Spieler.Dabei ist es keine gew hnliche und einschl fernde Biographie, sondern ein sehr pers nliches Buch welches einen berblick ber seine ganze Karriere, wichtige Erlebnisse und Personen gibt.Es ist nicht sehr schwer geschrieben, sch n in Erz hlform und immer wieder mit Wortmeldungen von Spielern, Trainern, Familie und Freunden Besondere Erinnerungen, die man aus Sicht des Fans Chelsea 2009, Finale, S dafrika noch in Erinnerung hat, werden so aus Sicht von Iniesta noch einmal erlebt.Eigentlich Pflichtlekt re f r jeden Barcelona Fan, aber ich denke auch f r jeden Fu ball Interessierten lesenswert.

  11. Spike Spike says:

    Ein sehr pers nliches und ehrliches Buch Die Kapitel sind teils recht lang, aber sie erz hlen nachvollziehbar und mit emotionalen Einblicken, wie aus einem kleinen, talentierten Junge ein Fussball Star wird Nicht wie vielleicht die klassische Biografie eine ultimative Lobhudelei auf den Portraitierten, sondern viel mehr eine Mischung aus der Beschreibung des selbst erlebten und den Zuschreibungen von ehemaligen und zeitgen ssischen Weggef hrten So ergibt sich ein sehr komplettes und komplexes Bild ber einen Menschen der nicht nur von Ruhm und Eitel Sonnenschein spricht, sondern vor allem auch der Kehrseite, den ngsten, Depressionen und Versagens ngsten Andres Iniesta schildern die ganz pers nlichen H rden, die ihm das Leben immer wieder gestellt hat, auf dem Weg zu der Person,die er heute ist Eine sehr pers nliche, ehrliche und sympathische Biografie ber einen, der bei allem Ruhm immer auf dem Boden geblieben ist Ein toller Mensch.

    This book is great but I have to say not easy reading You won t mind because you ll want every single morsel of information but it s definitely not straightforward reading It s a question of style but the substance is wonderful.

    Not a typical autobiography but like a documentary glimpses into life of The Great Andres The making of a footballer From his childhood to La Masia and into the best team in the world and his problems and then the famous World Cup Final goal against the Dutch And his love for Barca in the words of his loved ones
