Excellent condition book – David Beckham: Both Feet On The Ground Autobiography$3.86
Even people who don’t know football know Pele? The best of a generation of Brazilian players universally acknowledged as the most accomplished and attractive group of footballers ever to play the game, he won the World Cup three times and is Brazil’s all-time record goalscorer. But how did this man — a sportsman, a mere footballer, like many others — become a global icon? Was it just by being the best at what he did, or do people respond to some other quality? The world’s greatest footballer now gives us the full story of his incredible life and career.
Told with his characteristic grace and modesty, but covering all aspects of his playing days and his subsequent careers as politician, international sporting ambassador and cultural icon, PELE: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY is an essential volume for all sports fans, and anyone who admires true rarity of spirit.$7.72$7.72
Gently used book, the Ball is Round.
There may be no cultural practice more global than soccer. Rites of birth and marriage are infinitely diverse, but the rules of soccer are universal. No world religion can match its geographical scope. The single greatest simultaneous human collective experience is the World Cup final.
In this extraordinary tour de force, David Goldblatt tells the full story of soccer’s rise from chaotic folk ritual to the world’s most popular sport-now poised to fully establish itself in the USA. Already celebrated internationally, The Ball Is Round illuminates soccer’s role in the political and social histories of modern societies, but never loses sight of the beauty, joy, and excitement of the game itself.$12.87
