About the Author

After 200 appearances for Atletico, he was signed for a club-record £20 million by Liverpool in July 2007, and in his debut season in the Premier League became the first Liverpool player in 12 years to score 20 goals. He made his debut for Spain in 2003, has amassed over 50 caps to date, and has played in two European Championships and one World Cup.

Secondy, i would like to say that this book is really really awesome! Being a Torres fan for over 3 years, i really recommend this book to any football fans because it's really worth to read. What is really interesting is that, this book is not so boring. Meaning, interesting font sizez and colours are used unlike the normal ones found in books that make us sleepy. Torres's childhood pictures and pictures of him doing "normal" stuffs like cooking and driving is really funny. His words are clear and understandable. From his perspective, we know what he has gone through, from language and food. No matter how much he says he love Liverpool, one can feel that Torres still has a very special feeling for Athletico.
I would recommend this book as a gift for any Torres fan
It's fair to say this book was published in an attempt to attract all ages, however this is where it fails. A traditional autobiography may have been devoured by older Liverpool fans but it wouldn't appeal to the massive younger fanbase. With "el Nino - my story" Harper Sport have simply pitched it halfway & produced a relatively lightweight book chock-full of glossy photo's & could easily be read in less than a couple of hours. It's not to say it's not a decent enough read but it's very light on the ground & predictably LFC-friendly.
Even though the book has obviously been approved by LFC's Media Team, I felt I could read between the lines & determine that Fernando holds Luis Aragones in higher esteem than Rafa Benitez & that in all honesty he was more aware of Arsenal, Chelsea and dare I say it Manchester United than he was of Liverpool until he decided to make the jump to Britain & was quickly clued-up on the history of the most successful club in the country.
As above, this is a decent buy for adult Liverpool fans but I would have enjoyed it a whole lot more if I was still in my early teens with posters of Torres & Co adorning my bedroom walls
However after reading this astonishing book I have decided not to give up on my blossoming football career and get my self fit and back in action within the next 2 months!
My target is to get selected for the awesome Redbulls Team who play on a monday night at Goals, this book has given me all the encouragement and installed a winning mentality in me. Thanks Fernando, you are the greatest!
This is one of those books you can leave on the coffee table. So make sure to get the hardcover edition. Hundreds of illustrations in a thick 300 pages book through snapshots of Torres' life. Like a scrapbook replete with different little stories. But beware. Although it is very informative, this is not a full-fledged autobiography from year one and so on. If you're looking for a chronological life of Torres, turn to the excellent book Torres by Luca Caioli (Ian Cruise's Liverpool number 9 is a little too dry and boring for me).
Well worth the price. A beautiful gift for any fan of Fernando Torres.
