What I think about this book is that it is hard to not want to keep reading more and more. This is a story on how Fernando Torres had transferred from Athletico Madrid but during then he had "You'll Never Walk Alone" printed on his captain armband and at that time he was excited for his move....And that is when Liverpool FC's saying was born.

Torres el Nino My Story
Torres el nino My Story is probably the best autobiography iv ever read. Torres writes about his life growing up in Madrid and how he wanted to become a goalkeeper but ended up injuring his finger and switched over to a striker. And that was the start of a legend.

I really connected with this autobiography because of how Torres had to play with the older kids when he was growing up and how he had to tryout with kids that where older than him. And I could connect with that...more

I thought that this book was one of the best autobiographies I have ever read as I never knew just how normal Fernando Torres's life was until I read this book.
It really gives you the feel that if you believe that you are good enough to play football for a living you can.
He tells you how his life from living in Spain to living in Liverpool has changed his life and how he met his girlfriend and the charity work he does
It was a shame to see him leave Anfield, but this gives excellent coverage of the transition from being a huge talent in Spain to a legend on Merseyside. Extremely easy to read and top notch photo collection to light the way.

I specially liked it because I Love Fernando Torres and he is my Idol.

Destiny seemed to have decided that if i ever left Atletico Madrid it would be for Liverpool.
Very good book, gave a fascinating summary of his football life up to the present.
