I was very sceptical when I first looked at this book, but having read Victoria Beckham's biography I thought it only right to read this.
Although I am a woman I am also an avid follower of Manchester United and David Beckham's career there. This book follows him from day 1 within United and his career changes and progressions.
I half expected the whole thing to be about his football careerbut was pleasantly surprised to find he also told of his rise to fame behind the scene's.
The emotional grip he has you under when you read his side of everything that has happened to him as a footballer, a husband and a father is unbelieveable. He tells us of the heart ache of being told his family is not his priority when his youngest, Brooklyn, is taken ill and what he and Victoria had to go through when they recieved kidnap threats.
I would suggest that anyone read this book, whether you are a football fan or not. However what I will say is that there is a lot of reference to his football career that gets dragged out a bit but it always seems to be there for a reason (eventually).
Well worth the read.
