Review

"Hunter examines Barca's rise from every angle and manages, ultimately, to strike a delicate balance between wise football writing and perceptive portraiture that makes for a compelling read." ESPN"<br \><br \>"Entertaining, informative and beautifully written, "Barca: The Making of the Greatest Team in the World," is the next best thing to watching Barcelona play. Years from now, this book will be revered as the definitive biography of the most remarkable era in the history of FC Barcelona." Ian McGarry, writer and broadcaster"<br \><br \>"Superbly-written analysis & celebration of Pep, Messi, Xavi etc. Brilliant book." "Daily Telegraph""<br \><br \>"Graham Hunter takes you on an unforgettable journey . . . into the famous footbaling cathedral of Camp Nou and into the Catalan club's boardroom. He delves deeper than any journalist has ever managed into every nook and cranny of the much-vaunted youth system. You will love it. Hunter's gargantuan effort is quite possibly the best book ever written on FC Barcelona and quite comfortably slots into the top 10 of my all-time sports books." "Irish News""<br \><br \>'We'll be talking about this Barcelona team decades from now, and thankfully we'll still have Graham Hunter's magisterial book explaining how it came about. Just as Barca didn't happen by accident, neither does Hunter's acutely observed account. An instant classic.' "Sports Illustrated""<br \><br \>"No one knows Barcelona like Graham Hunter. This is a penetrating, convincing and fascinating account of the construction of one of the best teams we have seen, full of insight and analysis." "Guardian"" --Guardian

"I doubt whether there will ever be a more definitive book about the making of the greatest football team our generation. Pep Guardiola once said to his team that Andres Iniesta would retire them all. Graham Hunter has retired all of us who aspire to write about this team." "Mail on Sunday"" --Rob Draper, Mail on Sunday

"From detailing the out of control influence of Ronaldinho and Deco to confirming Guardiola's genius, it's written with stacks of insight. *****" "Four Four Two" "Full of behind-the-scenes insight into the individuals and the ethos behind Barca s rise to dominance. Utterly astounding." "Scottish Daily Mail" "Fittingly, the making of the greatest team in the world is a subject from which has emerged one of the finest books written on football." "Scotsman"


--Scotsman
