Book Description

This is the official autobiography of Brazil and Barcelona superstar Neymar. Neymar da Silva Santos Junior is one of the most iconic players in football, a superstar for Barcelona FC and the greatest name in modern-day Brazilian sport. His journey to the peak of world football has been extraordinary: from a childhood spent on the verge of poverty he was plucked from obscurity as an eleven year old by Santos FC, the club where Pelé made his name, and soon after making his first-team debut as a seventeen year old he rocketed to fame to become one of the brightest stars in world football. But Neymar would not have become the player that he has without his father, Neymar Sr, who has been a steady and influential guide in his life and career. And only with an understanding of his father’s past, and of the challenges that the Neymar family have faced and overcome, is it possible to truly understand the making of this extraordinary footballer. The role and the influence that father and son have each had on the other’s life, and how they have achieved such a successful balance between work and family life, is a beautiful and touching story. Neymar’s talent has always been astonishing. But it could have been lost had it not been carefully nurtured, developed and managed. This book reveals the making of one of the greatest and most iconic players on the planet as told by father and son, with exclusive insights into Neymar’s life and career, his achievements and his aspirations as he prepares to spearhead Brazil’s World Cup challenge in the summer of 2014.

5.0 out of 5 stars A touching and revealing insight 5 Jun. 2014
By Bundai
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely book, very different to most football autobiographies and biographies. Not only does it offer revealing insights into the skill development that made Neymar Jr the player that he is and recounts many of his finest moments, but it delves right to the heart of HOW he became the player and person that he is. Thanks to the care, attention and wisdom of his father, Neymar Sr, Neymar Jr has developed a fierce appetite for self-improvement while still passionately enjoying the game he fell in love with as a young child – while also keeping his feet rooted firmly to the ground. This is a wonderful rags to riches story which sees Neymar Jr fulfil the dreams of his father, who was himself a professional footballer but whose career did not scale the heights of his son’s, but without any sense that his father pushed him to do so. It is a wonderful and very touching account and I particularly enjoyed how father and son tell the story chapter by chapter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Neymar autobiography 19 Jun. 2014
By j_ellen
Format:Paperback
This Neymar autobiography a great insight into the making of this world-class player in the lead-up to the World Cup in Brazil. Told alternately by Neymar Jr and his father, Neymar Sr, we see how Neymar's talent was obvious from a young age and learn of the hard work he put in. He and his father have always made important decisions together about his development both as a player and a young man. Touching.

5.0 out of 5 stars TIMELY AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF NEYMAR! 28 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
It's not that explosive, and there's not much to reveal either. His is still a career in the making, whether he will attain the cult status enjoyed by the likes of his compatriot Pele and Maradona is yet to be seen. However, when he plays for country, he carries the expectation of over 200 million Brazilians on his slender shoulder. And when he plays for club Barcelona, the weight is not lighter either. Country or club, much is expected of him.

Dubbed the official autobiography, Neymar: My story - Conversations With My Father by Neymar da Silva Santos Junior and Neymar da Silva Santos Senior with Ivan Moré which was released recently to coincide with the World Cup 2014 is the English translation of the book which was published in Brazil in 2013. It is not a lengthy autobiography. Just 150 pages long, made all the more shorter by the book's division into thirty short chapters, alternating between Neymar Jr and Sr in a conversational tone. Very easy to read!

Two specifics that can be easily pointed out, and attributed to both Neymar Jr and Neymar Sr apiece might as well be the high-point of the autobiography. Neymar Sr revealed that he and his son travelled to Spain in 2006 for a probable move to Real Madrid. Neymar Jr became very homesick. "I just felt that the moment wasn't right....Our hearts decided it and I didn't even care how much money we were turning down." Neymar Jr also revealed that he turned down a move to Chelsea in 2010, despite a "huge transfer bid" from the then Premier League champions and says it was the right decision.

Short and engaging, the book offers insight not only into the life of Neymar Jr but also Neymar Sr, and the legion of fans will truly appreciate this timely autobiography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding Neymar as a player and person. 1 Jun. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great insight to Neymar himself. He talks about how he became the person who he is today with the help of his father. His dreams and ambitions, brilliant read for anyone who doesn't understand Neymar as a player you will get a great insight as to why he has a certain playing style. His father also involved with this book, explains how he helped Neymar stay grounded as a person during his progression to fame.

As I say, it is perfect for anyone who is interested in learning about Neymar or simply just his playing style.
