4.0 out of 5 stars Great read but I just wish it was up to date. 15 July 2011
Format:Paperback
Very informative book. From his humble background in Rosario to his dizzy heights in Spain. It reads well and gives all the details you could want. I just wish there was one written to cover this last two years so that the author could stop the constant debate about who was better, Messi or Maradonna. As we all know that comparison, thanks to the last two seasons, is like comparing Barcelona FC with the Cricketers Arms. Messi has proved himself to be the best footballer who has ever lived and not by a short distance either. Come on Luca, write another and this time lets have more about how he fared this last few years.

5.0 out of 5 stars What can one say? 16 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent book on a great player. Considering his growth problems when he was young it is surprising that he made it at all, and the backing that FCB gave him paid out for the club and him. A well-written book with a lot of detail.
