Overview: Messi: The Inside Story of the Boy Who Became a Legend


Messi: The Inside Story of the Boy Who Became a Legend is written by Luca Caioli. The book focuses on the trajectory of the star footballer's glorious journey so far, down the road of his life and career. Born in a small Argentinian province, to a factory worker and a part-time cleaner, Lionel, fondly known as Leo, showed precocious talent in soccer at a very tender age. From a local football club, the child protégé grew up to acquire international fame. Playing as a forward for FC Barcelona, and the national team of Argentina, the ace footballer was nominated for prestigious awards like FIFA World Player of the Year and Ballon d'Or by the age of twenty one.

Luca Caioli is a sport journalist from Italy who has written biographies of a number of football legends. The author has written the life stories of Torres, Roberto Mancini, Ronaldo and Neymar. Many of Luca Caioli's books are available for online purchase. Before you buy books from an online bookstore, consult Junglee.com to compare between various prices your chosen book is sold at, and choose the lowest possible price.

The life-story of this inimitable soccer star is encouraging, inspiring and spiritually invigorating. The 27-year-old is hailed as the sole footballer to have touched, or perhaps transcended, the milestones set by compatriot and living legend Diego Maradona. This belief of the football fraternity has been supported by Maradona himself. Messi, the book is pieced into thirty nine chapters. The book starts with the birth of Messi, and ends with the final showdown of the 2011 UEFA Champions League. Barcelona's win against Manchester United in that match was attributed to Messi magic to a great degree. Luca Caioli starts the book with a conversation with Messi's mother Celia. The proud mother reminisces about the birth of her third child, his growing years, his introduction to football, the burgeoning of his talent and his rise to prominence.

The journey of Messi's life has not always been smooth. At the age of eleven he was diagnosed with a hormonal deficiency. It was a challenge for the little boy as well as his family to overcome this obstacle and race ahead in life, which they successfully did. Published by Corinthian, the 288-page book has the ISBN 10 number 1906850399 and ISBN 13 number 9781906850395.
