Average book

The narrator does a good job and the stories are well taken however I just felt that it is a bounch of anecdotes compiled, but nothing out of what you can find by googling the name of the player. I was expecting something more personal since Alberto (author) has been in this soccer world that much, I was expecting stories that the player could actually told him, perhaps he wants to talk of a lot of players that he talk to little of each.

Well researched and great choices.

Overall fantastic book and I would say I agree with 95% of the choices made. I just don't understand why Keylor Navas is in.
