In England, where he spent ten seasons leading his storied club Manchester United and his nation to soccer glory, he is so wildly popular that his countrymen voted him the face they'd most want to see imprinted on their money. (Winston Churchill finished second.) In Japan, where he is worshiped as much for his headline-making fashion trends as for his ability to bend a ...more

David Beckham: Both feet on the ground: An Autobiography by David Beckham, year 2003, pages 386.

I personally think the book could be intended for anybody really. In this book there is really no true problem but he does talk about his hardships growing up and even in his professional career and how he was able to overcome those hard times. The setting of the book takes place in Chingford, London as he was growing up but goes from Manchester, Madrid, L.A. and many more places that had an impact on

This autobiography about David Beckham shares a lot of his interesting and shocking opinions on his life being a world class and legendary soccer player. His writing really opens up and expands his life from just being a soccer player and includes a lot of stories that share the importance of his family. The book starts off when he was only a couple years old and ends when he is in his thirties. His autobiography in my opinion really explains a well rounded and developed story on his life that ...more

After his 41 million transfer to Manchester United Beckham now played for over a decade and making many relentless goals and making so many records. Starting to lead his team at the age of 18 many people doubted him, not realizing that he was start in a few years and leading and winning 10 titles for his team and over a dozen championships.

“David Beckham, both feet on the ground”gave me the view of his life that i didn't already know it just feels good now knowing his story. David Beckham was a

The autobiography Beckham: Both Feet on the Ground is a very good autobiography of one of my favorite soccer players. I liked this book because it describes how he got himself from a poor boy, to the captain of England's national team. Also, I like how in depth he went in his journey through the Manchester United youth academy and to the professional team. This book helped me learn even more about my favorite soccer player, and made me like him even more. This book also motivates me because it ...more

This autobiography is about one of my favorite soccer players.I really like this book because it started from when he was a normal soccer player in his city but it wasn't just a little part in the book that he talked about his childhood and he described it well.I also like the parts when he would put parts about cup games and said the scores with a little description.Lastly, I would recommend the book to people interested in sports to see it doesn't just happen be a pro athlete.

The life of David Beckham is anything but boring. This book explains his life and his love for the game of soccer. As a little boy everyone knew he had talent and this book is from his point of veiw about his clubs and his team mates. I am not much of a reader but I do love soccer so this book made me like to read a litte and it made me think of myself as a player when I read about David when he was my age. I wish there were more books out there for me to read. Great book.

When I found this at The Caring Place, I had to buy it. I wasn't sure what to expect - ridiculously talented and good-looking futbol star or normal guy. I was happy to find him a down to earth, family man that, while mad about soccer and being the best he can be, a kind of shy and family oriented man. I found the book honest and, as a soccer player & fan, fun. I recommend it to those that are die hard soccer fans and have a soft spot for Beckham.

“away from fast food - for three weeks already. And I was starting to miss the occasional burger and fries. I assumed there'd be a few of the other lads feeling the same way. I talked to Sven, who thought it wouldn't do any harm, and then had a word with the England chefs. On the Wednesday night we all trooped down to dinner. The doors of the dining room were shut and there were two giant golden arches stuck up on them. We all went inside and there was a McDonald's takeaway mountain waiting for us: more burgers, cheeseburgers and chips than you've ever seen piled up in one room in your life. It was a complete surprise to all the players. We just devoured everything: it was like watching kids going mad in a candy store. And it worked. We did it again before we played Denmark. Maybe fast food was what was missing from our preparations for facing Brazil.” 3 likes
