Not a great read
on 8 September 2013
I'm a female footie fan but never saw Pele play. Still, I've read a few footballer autobiographies and thought I'd give this one a go....and boy was it hard going. The writing style is very dull and there's an awful lot of match descriptions. I know it's unavoidable but that kind of thing has never interested me as much as watching a live match.
So, after reading the first 90 or so pages, I ended up reading every other page and very much speed reading and just picking out things that caught my eye.
I've still not seen Pele play but I now know that he's got an eye for the ladies and is absolutely rubbish with money.
