Overview

Lionel Messi is the greatest player of his generation – perhaps of all time. The talisman of a Barcelona team that has dominated Spanish and European football, and the winner of the FIFA Ballon d’Or an unprecedented four times in a row, he is fast, elusive and mesmerising.

Luca Caioli draws on numerous exclusive testimonies to tell Messi’s story, including his parents and extended family, his coaches, those who have played alongside him and even Messi himself.

Messi is a revealing portrait of football’s most exciting star, updated to include the electrifying 2012/13 season in which the humble young sportsman rewrote the record books to the delight of fans across the globe.

This book was quite informative and thoroughly researched. It's a fabulous inside look at Leo Messi's meteoric career rise to the top of the football world. There are very interesting interviews with coaches--such as FC Barcelona's former coach Frank Rijkaard--as well as with some of Messi's friends, family, and teammates. Though of course much has happened to Leo in the two years since this book was published (the 2010 World Cup, the 2010 Ballon d'Or, his incredible 2010/11 season) it is a great review of his accomplishments to that date, covering Leo's career up to Barca's treble and the 2009 Ballon d'Or and Player of the Year awards. I highly recommend it to any Messi fan.
