Contrary to what many people think - Luis Suarez comes off as a person with a clean heart who faced a lot of hardships in his early years. Also, his love-story with his now wife Sofi and all the efforts he took to be close to her is all very endearing.

One thing stands out is his desire to win. He himself sums it up saying "Its not that I want to win,
I need to win". He is one person who always gives his 100% on the pitch no matter what - something we all can learn from him. And yes he does overs

I started liking Luis Suarez at one of the most controversial moments of his career - when he stopped a certain goal while playing for his country, Uruguay in the quarter finals of the world cup 2010.

It's obvious to his fans that he is an instinctive player. But it's nice to get inside the head of a footballer. It's always better to know the background of your favourite player. The book explains his upbringing in Uruguay, his struggles, his hunger to play and win, his relationship with his girlf

have just finished it and already regretting that there are no more pages to read about this amazing man. a man who has struggled all his life to arrive where he is today. for sure he didn't have an easy life and had to work hard. am so glad that I never judged him in any way and feel so lucky that for 2 and a half seasons he was our no. 7. such a humble and honest man whom unfortunately the English media always pointed it's finger towards him and made his life anything but easy while living in ...more

Sid Lowe involved in writing this I guess. Easy to read for non-native english speaker. The story is good, yeah just good.

I found Zlatan's is better than Suarez'. Because I Am Zlatan is very good, I believe it influenced the opening of this book. It's similar.

Suarez story is a love-driven one. Had it not for Sofi, perhaps Suarez will only play in Uruguay, unable to made a move to europe let alone winning it's biggest tournament, the UCL.

So light, I can even finish reading this in less than a wee

The book was a very interesting read into the minds of one of the world's best forwards detailing his story from small towns in Uruguay to the Camp Nou.

There are some very well written emotional chapters in this book about the tears after Crystal Palace, the bitings and then incident with Evra.

The real gems are the sections on his interactions with his managers (Martin Jol, Rodgers, van Basten), his teammates (Glen Johnson!) and one piece on EPL referees!

Honest and Engaging

It's more of a biography but Suarez writes his journey with honesty. Good book to communicate with the demons within us!

I have enjoyed reading sporting autobiographies and this one is no different. I always liked Suarez as a player. I gave his all as a Liverpool player and the fact that he loved the club comes out in this book.

He does not talk about why he left Liverpool, and I wish he could have stayed another year.

It was interesting but not the best autobiography I have read. I can't always identify with him, we are from way to different backgrounds. The fact that English is not his first language may not have

I must have wondered hundreds of times over the years - What must be going on inside his head? Fans and pundits have accepted that Every genius has a touch of madness, but this is a bit too much. Here is a world class player who is capable of terrorizing and destroying the best defense in the world - yet he will be remembered in the history as a racist who has bitten footballers on the field - THRICE!!! Through all the ups and downs, and amidst the trophies, awards and humiliating bans, you get ...more

Good book. Nice insight into his mind and how his upbringing and attitude towards life and football is. I've never read a football biography but this was definitely one which was interesting. Nice to see the whole competitive size and how it is to be an athlete. Of course he addresses his controversies and explains his mistakes but at the same time, nice to see who the real person behind the player is. Nice read and recommend it for those who are fan of Suarez or football. Definitely in my opini ...more

Overall this is a good read, not only as a Liverpool or Suarez fan but also as a football fan. The one thing that i like about Suarez is his strong will to do anything to achieve his goals. Of course during the process, he made mistakes and even let people down but to me, that’s natural.
We also make mistakes all the time and the important thing is how we get back on track to try to reach our goals. That’s how we survive and progress.

It's rare to find an autobiography that strikes the perfect balance between detailing one's story ab initio and getting too long-drawn and borderline boring.
Suárez does it perfectly, and his own, human side of things that global media freely makes mincemeat of, is on the platter.
A beautiful book on an interesting, quite inspiring life.
Gayathiri Rajendran
It was an excellent read overall. I never really had a strong opinion about Suárez and it was mostly what I saw in the media that influenced me a bit. A quite refreshing read coming from the man himself.

Not an Uruguayan, not a Liverpool or Ajax fan, but Suarez is one of the best of his time. Good story, a few aspects that I didn't know about him. Really enjoyed the book.

A good book , but not the best football book I have read. It lacked a bit of detail and depth.

This is an entertaining read that describes the dramatic journey of a brilliant player, from his time playing as a child in the callejón—a crime-ridden alley in a rough part of Montevideo—through to his transfer to Barcelona to play in front of 98,000 at the Camp Nou at the start of the 14/15 season. The book moves roughly chronologically through his time at Nacional, at Groningen and Ajax, and then at Liverpool, as well as the two world cup campaigns, and the victorious Copa América campaign.

I forgot how painful it was when Liverpool lost the league till at the very end. When I read those chapters it brought back the memory's . Suarez was no Stevie G , but he put in one heck of an effort during those short few years. Respect always to Luis, so long as he never plays in England for another team. YNWA

It is worth a read if you want to know what made one of the greatest footballers from Uruguay the way he is. If you are not an ardent football fan please STAY AWAY.

SPOILER ALERT:

Mostly through the book he tries to justify his shenanigans on the pitch by citing his sombre past which seemed to me as nothing more than a publicity stunt to clear his image.

I loved the way he tells the story of all the controversies through his own eyes. Makes you feel that every thing he did whether it was bite someone, dive or celebrate in front of the opponent, was justified and the most natural thing. Reading about his past and where he comes from, you can't not have respect for this guy.
Christopher Shulgan
Impressive for the extent that Suarez is self-aware. One takeaway is that Suarez and his wife have a beautiful love story, which is surprising considering most people will read this to learn more about "the biter." Not the best-written memoir, but it does give you a good sense of what propels Suarez.

4/5 stars. I'm a Liverpool fan, and I always liked Luis Suarez, controversies and all. Everything good and bad about him was borne of one fundamental thing: his burning passion when on the pitch. This book was an enjoyable read, as he relates the story of his rise from rags to riches, and his heart-warming desire to follow his young love anywhere in the world.

I just finished this book. The book is well written, direct & clear style.
I liked this book because Suarez lets us see him as a family man the real person behind the soccer jersey.
You will enjoy it. Barca fans, the books does not comprehend the FCB period, Suarez wrote this book during just until the transfer time from Liverpool to FCB.
Nice book, nice soccer stories.

book reveals a deeply complex footballer that often plays instinctively which is both a marvel as well as exasperation depending on which angel he allows his instincts to bring him too. What is undeniable is his never say die attitude
