Sometimes it's ok to be different...
on 1 May 2017
Genuinely one of the greatest autobiographies you'll ever read. It is about 330 pages and I finished it in 4 sittings, I was that captivated by his story. It reads very easily and has a British-style language, using words like "blimey" and "bloody".
For those who think he is this big ego, you soon become to see that it's just a persona Zlatan developed, that he is indeed a nice guy that just has a fighting, free spirit.
What you take away from this story is you may have had a childhood lacking in physical items (foods, nice clothes, etc.) but a determination to find and follow your joys can lead to great things. Zlatan led his life his way, he was always true to himself, even in situations when most would have yielded and skulked out of the door with their head down and shoulders hunched. He went against the status quo because he had a belief in his own abilities.
That in itself is the overriding theme I took from this book. As he says - Listen; Don't Listen. Believe in yourself.
