Product description

Review

"A serious book, well written and virtually watertight in its research/assertions. There's a good reason why Beckham hasn't come out and publicly countered any of the sh*t chucked at him - he knows Wahl has got him good, from all angles ... He stared at the Galaxy's brightest star without blinking, and came away not dazzled but determined to tell the truth." -- bigsoccer.com, July 2009

"Wahl's rookie hardback offering is difficult to put down ... it repeatedly and subtly exposes the way people all over the globe too often place how things appear from the outside above how things actually are. I've never seen the application of that life strategy make anyone happy, but it sure does turn pages."
-- soccer365.com, July 2009

"Donovan is no fan - and has unleashed his simmering resentment in The Beckham Experiment, a book compiled by author Grant Wahl, excerpts of which are revealed in the latest issue of Sports Illustrated magazine."
-- The Sun, 2 July, 2009

David Beckham has been fiercely criticised by his LA Galaxy team-mate Landon Donovan, who has called into question the former England captain's commitment to the American club... Donovan's comments - part of a new book 'The Beckham Experiment' by Grant Wahl published in Sports Illustrated - come as Beckham received a warning from the president of the United States Soccer Federation, Sunil Gulati, to expect a hostile reception from fans when he returns to Galaxy. -- The Guardian, 2 July, 2009

The Beckham Experiment is a story of worlds colliding, bringing together the planet's most famous athlete with teammates who earned as little as $12,900 a year. But that inequity was only the start of a downward spiral that, on the eve of Beckham's return, has turned into a soccer fiasco.
-- Sports Illustrated, July 6, 2009
