5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the finest biographies, 4. April 1999
I have nothing but admiration for Jimmy Burns: the Financial Times correspondent, and his book on the Argentine legend. This book catalogs the journey of the Argentinian, who grew up in the slums around Buenos Aires and catapulted to the very pinnacle of the football world. But then he fell and is yet to rise from the ashes of shame and disrepute. What is certain is this: Maradona was one of the greatest. But his friends and the price of fame brought him down. One is left clutchng straws of disappointment and pain at the end of the book. But at heart he was a street urchin and did not have the grace of the great Brazilian: Pele. Apart from the story of Maradona, one gets a generous glimpse into the flagship of Catalan nationalism: Football Club Barcelona. Also the appeal of Boca Juniors to the economically poor Maradona. Boca es Gardel. Very good book, ranks on par with Crick's biography of George Orwell. footbarca@hotmail.com

4.0 von 5 Sternen the General, 17. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Coming from a nation, where fotball is 4th in the lader of national sport, one must not dwell in the politics of his personal life, being a sport fan one must acknowlege his skills, touch, but most important the way he could read the feild and most important the opposition. Formula 1 had Nelson, Tenis had Borg , Basketball had Jordan and fotball had Maradona. And to all those English Man, the hand of God inccident was true Professionalism at that moment, this is what i think went through his mind. If i get booked i'm done,but if i don't i'm a hero. So England for your own Fotball futur , do not dwell in the past, you lost a superior player that ripped the team in half with that magical second goal, that even your keeper could not stop.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is a must read for any soccer fan., 27. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Jimmy Burns has written a book that speaks to the trials and tribulations of being the world's best player in the world's most popular sport. The book traces Maradona's history as well as the man's impact on the game and the people for whom and with whom he played. Anyone who has had the chance to see the genius of Maradona on the field must take the opportunity to find out the social, cultural, psychological, physical, and mental context within which he played. Readers will gain greater insight into what it means to be an icon for the entire world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Maradona , without question the greatest yet seen, 10. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
People become attached to a player and don't want to admit that it is possible that someone greater must come along. When Pele played the game it was slower and there was nowhere near the sophistication in the defenses that you see today( look at France 98!). If you simply watch film of Pele and then watch film of Maradonna you will see who is the true God of soccer. This book captures the life of the Greatest soccer player the world has yet to see.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb, 15. Januar 1999
Von

(REAL NAME)   
For me this is the finest football biography that I have come across. Ok the competition may well be modest, but the depth of investigation ( into an alarmingly difficult and dangerous subject), the quality of the writing together with a nicely measured and balanced tone, make this extraordinary tale stand head and shoulders above the rest. Every sports fan must read this

5.0 von 5 Sternen Maradona is second best to Pele., 8. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
To those who think that Maradona was better than Pele are very wrong. Pele was a genius and nobody can surpass what he did, and has done, for the game of soccer; Maradona was the second best player ever and nobody can deny that but he is not even close to the legendery Edson Arantes do Nascimento--PELE. ========VIVA CHILE!!!!!!========

5.0 von 5 Sternen Maradona is the great football player., 13. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I'm boy of 23years old. Everybody says Pele is the king of the football but I haven't seen his any live game. I just read about him. For me Maradona is the KING of football.
