Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Klopp: Bring the Noise by Raphael Honigstein, read by Adam James.

'I like the total intensification, when there are crashes and bangs everywhere, pure adrenaline and no one being able to breathe.'

Jürgen Klopp's super-sized personality and all-or-nothing style of football and management made him the perfect choice to pump up the volume at Anfield. The appointment sparked hysteria in the city, with fans and club officials delighted to get the coach they'd long admired from afar and eager to see the impact he would have on the club and the Premier League.

With exclusive access to Klopp's friends, family, colleagues and players, Raphael Honigstein goes behind-the-scenes at Liverpool, Mainz and Dortmund to tell the definitive story of Klopp's career, transformative footballing genius and how he is bringing the noise to Anfield.

Klopp's the manager to turn players into winners, to get that little bit more from them and transform teams like mid-table Borussia Dortmund into title winners and one of Europe's most acclaimed sides in just two seasons.

He's authentic, approachable and funny, charming media and fans alike. He's also merciless and exceptionally driven, his quick temper bubbling away barely under the surface.

Expectations have been high and even when results haven't gone their way, Liverpool's exciting football and Klopp's pitch-side passion have enthralled, culminating in a triumphant return to Champions League football.

Klopp follows his story from its Black Forest beginnings, as a player with 'fifth division skills and a first division brain', his accidental fall into management and the success at Mainz and Dortmund which paved the way to Anfield.

Great book poor narration

Interesting book on one of the most remarkable individuals from world football but the narration sounds over eager with tell tale signs that the person doesn’t follow football.

Rafa could’ve done a reading on his iPhone and it would be ten times better.

What a pity.

Deep understanding into a great man's way of life

Great book and it gives a deep understanding into a great man's way of life

As LFC fan now it is much clearer how and why Jurgen Klopp acts as he does and what values he stands for. I am deeply greatful for having him as LFC manager.

Good

The narrator’s pronunciation of German was poor, though the rest was fine. Otherwise a good introduction to Klopp.

excellent book

Great insight into the force of nature that is Klopp. Only one word of warning for him. He needs the Plan B. Chasing a game at any level needs the option of the big man up front and packing the box looking for knock downs. No defence likes an aerial bombardment. Added to the pressure and possession his teams create it completes the toolbox of how to break down defences. It's why his cup final record is not great. However, you can see clearly why players want to play for him and why LFC is the perfect club for him.

A bit slow to start with.. but great after!

Great book to listen to, the start was slow and I guess it’s because I don’t know much about his early career. However, once it got going to showed great insight to Kloppo’s mentality and aspirations. Recommended!

Thrilling

The author decided not to focus on making us appreciate the development and consistency of Klopp's personality and coaching by mixing up the timelines.

Good listen

I struggle with biographies that are not in chronological order, so this was quite tough. Narrator is ok (not sure of the pronunciation of some English words by an English narrator though!)

If you like Klopp then its worth a read
