Get to know greatness

An in-depth look at one of the beautiful game's greatest stars, Messi.

This comprehensive biography covers Messi's life and career. Argentine journalist Leonardo Faccio describes how Messi, as a talented youth player in Buenos Aires, left his home for Spain in search of the medical help his family could not afford to treat his rare hormone deficiency. Small of stature, but possessing tremendous natural gifts, Messi developed into a star at Barcelona's famed Masia soccer school. In this book, Faccio has written not only a biography, but a meditation on athletic genius, drawing on interviews with Messi himself, as well as with everyone from his family, teammates and childhood friends. Paperback. 176 pages. Random House.
