For soccer enthusiasts and sports fans in general, an in-depth look at the life of the beautiful game’s greatest star, Argentine footballer Lionel Messi. Whether you call it soccer, football, fútbol, or the “beautiful game," it is the most popular sport in the world, and Argentine footballer Lionel Messi stands as one of its finest players—not only of his time, but of all time.

Now, in this comprehensive biography, Messi fans can learn more about his life and career.

In this book, Faccio has written not only a biography of an enigmatic celebrity, but a meditation on athletic genius, drawing on interviews with Messi himself, as well as with everyone from his family, teammates, childhood friends—even his favorite butcher.

‘A fresh look at the beautiful game’ - NME Welcome back to the inimitable work of illustrator David Squires. Most football fans can only dream of pulling on the shirt of their favourite team and running out in front of thousands of adoring fans. Pitch invaders aside, few of us get to experience that adrenalin rush. Of those who do make it as a professional footballer, even fewer realise the giddy heights of success. In the Illustrated History of Football: Hall of Fame, cartoonist David Squires returns to celebrate those who straddle the game like giants; those talented, determined souls who were juggling tennis balls in the back streets before they could talk. There’s more than one way to attain football immortality though, and Squires also turns his comic eye to the mavericks, the pioneers, the forgotten legends and the anti-heroes. From Pele to Meazza, Maradona to Socrates, you will be taken on an unforgettable journey through the good, the bad and the Hagi.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"You have to fight to reach your dream. You have to sacrifice and work hard for it." - Lionel MessiIt does not seem logical that a five foot, seven inch young man from Argentina could somehow turn into the world ́s best soccer player. A person diagnosed with growth hormone deficiency and without the economic resources to pay for the expensive treatment to treat that condition would also not be an ideal candidate to inherit the title of "World ́s Best" from the likes of Diego Maradona, Ronaldo, or Pelé. But Lionel Messi defies logic and has regularly done so since he joined his first soccer team when he was only four years old. In this book, we will follow Lionel Messi from his humble beginnings in a small town in Argentina, all the way to his record fifth Ballon D ́or award. Though the temptation may be strong, we won ́t assume that Messi simply inherited a wealth of natural talent. Instead, we will retrace the path of the hard work and dedication that led him to become, hands down, the greatest player in the history of soccer. Get this book now and enjoy the amazing journey of Messi!
