For those with an interest in football and Arsenal in particular, this book will be revealing and very interesting regardless of how much you think you know about Henry's career already.
Henry is not a straightforward hero and Auclair examines his relationships with his father and the likes of Zidane and Raymond Dommenech to explain why.
Henry's lack of leadership during the South Africa World Cup campaign comes in for unsparing criticism, but the book ends on a high with his cameo for Arsenal in 2012. This book makes an excellent companion to Arsenal - The French Connection: How the Arsenal Became L'Arsenal which profiles Henry and the equally fascinating background stories of Arsenal's other French players.
Henry certainly had great footballing skills which were seen at their pinnacle when he was a member of the Arsenal football club, somehow everything before and after seemed like an also ran.
This is a book Arsenal fans will greatly enjoy, and also the general football supporter who enjoys his football biography with detail, thought and comment rather than a blow-by- blow account of every game and breakdown of the opposition through someone's illustrious career.
This book is written extremely well, is engrossing and I was surprised at how many names I recognised spanning Henry's time in football from childhood to his twilight years.
Hard to put down. I recommended this highly, even towards people who aren't necessarily Henry fans..
why 3 stars? Too much of details, it is at time difficult to keep the reading.
The insight about the 2010 france world cup, the history, politics, racism... is not a bad thing. If for frenchis, Titi was forgotten with that world cup, in england Thierry henry is still a great deal and this book tells us nothing about the real man!!

There is too much information about other French players, which takes away the attention of Henry. Very upset with this book.Published 10 months ago by kindle reader
