Product Description

Review

'His fans will find as much joy turning the page as they do watching him play football.' -- The League Magazine

'What shines through in the book is his love of family and dedication to the game of football and Manchester United.' -- Talksport --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

Cristiano Ronaldo is the world famous Manchester United and Portuguese International footballer, admired around the world for his unique style of play. Football fans recognise instantly how he dribbles the ball, but there’s a great deal about him that has never been made public before. Cristiano recognises that his youth does not yet give him the right to produce an autobiography, and Moments does not set out to be one. It is an invitation to the reader to share with him some of the most fantastic moments of his career so far, and get to know him a little better. As well as an array of sumptuous photographs Cristiano Ronaldo gives his thoughts about his life so far, both on and off the pitch. Moments relates the story of his love of football from early childhood in Madeira; the homesickness he suffered as a result of the move, aged 12, to a football academy in Lisbon; through to his time with Manchester United, the club which has really made him famous and turned him into a football idol at only 22 years of age. He speaks of his love of playing for his country and the love and support of his family, as well as the sad moments in his life such as the death of his father. The book also shows glimpses of him training and enjoying his leisure time, the charity work he involves himself in, as well as off-field activities in both his professional capacity and for pleasure. He hopes that through these stories, and beautiful photographs by Jorge Monteiro, you will get to know Cristiano Ronaldo a little better. As you finish reading the last line he also trusts you will have enjoyed the book with the same enthusiasm you would get from watching him play football.

Format: Paperback
A big paving slab of a book has arrived. It's called Cristiano Ronaldo, Moments...
With massive full colour photographs and texts. It has 174 pages and is an amazing walk back down (his favourite) memory lane, so not really an autobiography as such; at least it doesn't feel like that.
It's a big square shaped book, with photos of his charity work, childhood and modelling.
A show into how he feels about United, his national side Portugal and life in general.
Love it all ready!
If you are a fan you will love this book.
Thankyou for reading

Format: Paperback
Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world (along with Rooney, Kaka, Messi and Ronaldinho - in my opinion!). This book is not so much an autobiography, but more of a series of "Moments" of his life so far.

With great colourful pictures of the man himself, he takes you through his childhood, a brief time at Sporting Lisbon, right upto his transfer to Manchester United.

Ronny comes across as a very thoughtful, caring, and deep young man. One that has definitely got his head screwed on properly, unlike many other "super-star" footballers out there. The most interesing parts of the book are about his relationship with his father who tragically died a couple of years ago, and "that" moment in the 2006 World Cup with Rooney.

I still think the average English football fan has a negative impression of Ronaldo, but after reading this book, I am sure that would change to a far more positive one.

Overall, a quality book about a quality footballer!!

A great preview into one of the worlds best midfield players to date. From Madeira, he played with Nacional before going on a three day trial with Sporting Lisbon. Whilst in the summer of 2003 Sporting beat Man Utd 3-1 to which Sir Alex Ferguson was hugely impressed with the youngster & signed him in replacement to Beckham. Ronaldo was then handed the No.7 shirt famously worn by Beckham. Ever since then Ronaldo has played magnificently not only for Manchester United whereas he won players footballer of the year, but also young player of the season. In the world cup 2006, he played magnificently for international Portugal & has taken over captaincy from internationally retired Luis Figo.

The Portuguese version of this book is excellent too, it took slightly longer for it to be released in the Uk due to the translation. But overall an excellent book!!!

Yesterday I received "Moments", and I must say that it is a great book!!!

I guess the first thing you notice is that it's a big book with all the pages printed on high quality glossy paper, and it's full of fantastic photos.

Ronaldo himself has said that he is too young yet to write a real autobiography, and therefore "Moments" is not just the usual write-up of dates, facts and numbers that many footballers sell as books these days. Instead, he decided to share some of the events that happened in his life so far by writing short stories and adding numerous pictures.

From his early years playing for Sporting Lissabon to winning the Premier Leage with Manchester United, from childhood dreams to his father's death, from being named captain of the Portuguese National Team to everyday routine ... this book provides a very nice glimpse into the life and mind of one of the best footballers in the world today. He certainly seems to have his head (and heart) in the right place!

All of Cristianos fans will also love this book for the countless great (and previously unpublished) photos!!!

I recieved this, and within 2 days of reading it i had finished it.
in parts its very touching,
it even made me cry.

During the read of it, though, he does mention what time he gets to training in a morning, and after waiting around to see him on quite a few occasions, before the book was published, i can tell you, he isnt normally one of the first, he does get in early, ill give him that, but it seems early to normal people. lol. but he always says he late. so you can make up your own minds.

as for the pictures,
they are fantastic.!
i love them. there are some odd photos, such as him sitting down straight legged, and the camera being placed at the end of his feet, and the photo taken, so the base of his feet are shown on the photo. not exactly the most attractive feet ever, but lets face it, hes beautiful so who cares about his feet?

anyway,
its a good read,
and i recommed it!!
any cristiano ronaldo fan would enjoy it.

Moments is a brilliant book if you are interested in learning more about Cristiano Ronaldo and how his career reached it's current point.
There are insights into his personal life, as well as lots of information about how he sees football and the part it plays in his life, as well as some fabulous photos.
If you are a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo, or if you just want to learn more, then Moments is definitely a good book for you.
I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
