    Messi fans will enjoy it

    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.
