A coffee table fund raiser book for UNICEF about the beautiful game, soccer. Soccer luminaries from all corners of the globe tell stories of their relationship to soccer.

I think that this book was a good choice to read if you are into the sport and have a love for the sport like I do. The way the author used every player from different countries and told them to explain about there life's and how soccer helped them achieve there goals and dreams. Every player had a background story and would tell us about the good times and about the bad times each player had.

So many varied backgrounds of the world's best soccer players and their account of how they became so great in their sport.
