Publisher's Summary

For three extraordinary seasons at Bayern Munich, Marti Perarnau was given total access around the German super club - to its players, its backroom staff, its board members and, above all, its manager, Pep Guardiola. In the follow-up to his critically acclaimed account of Guardiola's first full season at Bayern, Pep Confidential, Perarnau now lifts the lid on the Catalan's whole tenure in Bavaria.

Pep Guardiola: The Evolution takes the listener on a journey through three action-packed seasons as Bayern smashed domestic records yet struggled to emulate that dominance in Europe, analysing Guardiola's management style through key moments on and off the field. Perarnau reveals how Guardiola improved as a manager at Bayern despite failing to land the ultimate prize in European football, examines his decision to leave Germany to take up the challenge at Manchester City and how his managerial style will continue to evolve in the Premier League.

This is more than the story of three seasons with one of the biggest clubs in the game. It is a portrait and analysis of a manager and the footballing philosophies that have beguiled the world.

Total story. Total football. Total Pep.

If you think you understand football, management, professional sports you'll be blown away regardless. This book beautiful illustrates what Guardiola and his team's are all about. You want a behind the scenes look, you've got it! You want a look into pre- intra- and/or post-match or training details, you've got it! You want tactics, strategy, systems used by Pep and his men, you're covered. All of this and much more written in a style that keeps you wanting more. I blew threw the book in 3 days thanks to the audible edition and am planning to re read the entire book in print and take notes. Phenomenal! Absolutely, fucking brilliant.

Great book, lots of tactics.

Excellent book that would've been even better with a little more volume in the narrator's voice. Pep Guardiola is a brilliant guy, Marti Perarnau got very close to all his work and reveals a great piece of Pep's life. Lots of tactics for football lovers and great stories of team management of Pep.

Fascinating

Great insight into guardiola's methodology. As good as pep confidential, although a lot less linear

Works well as an audiobook

Would recommend

Some very good ideas behind alot bullshit

The writers relationship with Pep is uncomfortable, as it speaks of Pep in a god like figure, when in reality he has coached great teams with unbelievable resources and top professional players who always want to win.

Some great ideas I have to admit, but again alot of fluff and the ideas amount to 2 or 3 chapters, after that it's a waste of time.

Dissapointing!!!!
