Bought this as a birthday present for my Husband. Is an avid football fan and even though Messi has never played for his team he rates him as a top class player. He loved this book and has been engrossed in it!

Luca Caioli has the contacts and the credentials to write a perceptive book on the greatest footballer of our time. By interviewing not just family and teachers but even childhood friends and neighbours we get insight into the youngster's passion for soccer. His growth problems and his early departure from Rosario, Argentina to Barcelona, Spain are well documented. From then on his rise to stardom is chronicled. Soon after this a negative theme in the book emerges and never goes away: comparing Messi to Maradonna. It is said that comparisons are odious and yet all of us like to indulge in them from time to time. The problem with Luca Caioli is that once he has started comparing the two he cannot stop. Repeatedly, ceaselessly, continuously the comparison is developed, chapter after chapter until it palls.
I must confess I have not read the 2013 update, but it would surprise me if it were very different.
