Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School-The legendary soccer player and cultural icon takes readers on a tour of his life, from the streets of Chingford, England, to his role as star player on the world's most famous professional soccer team, with all the struggles and stadiums, and daring exploits, in between. As the inspiration for the hit movie Bend It Like Beckham, the subject of endless tabloid fodder, and the husband of a former Spice Girl, Beckham has captured the minds and hearts of not only the people of his native country, but of those around the world as well. Dozens of excellent-quality, black-and-white and color photos are included, about half of which have appeared elsewhere. This book is sure to be wildly popular with teens.

My review may be a little bit biased because I really like David Beckham, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I would have a liked a little bit more detail.
I read a recent review on here where someone said they were disappointed that Becks used Americanized language in the book. He should know that there was a UK and a US version of this book released, hence the use of 'soccer' instead of 'football', etc. The UK book is called 'David Beckham: My Side' and is written for the English audience. I also questioned how much of the book was penned by David or the co-author Tom Watt. I can't exactly see Becks sitting down to a computer and writing his memoirs. But who cares - it was written from his point of view and I really enjoyed being able to get inside his head.
I'd say the most interesting parts of the book were his rows with Alex Ferguson, leading to his eventual sale to Real Madrid and his feelings behind his sending off at the 1998 World Cup. I guess I wanted a book that would tell some behind-the-scenes type stuff and those were some of the highlights.
If you like David Beckham, I think you'd enjoy this book.

This book is a great book if you are a soccer fan. If your not it will still change the way you look at sports stars forever!
This book talks about David Beckham inside and out. It makes you realize how many people take the sport called soccer (football) so seriously and how that can affect a player. It makes you see David as a different person. You see past the reputation and greatness of this wonderful man. It makes you look at him as a person like you and me. He is very humble as he tells his story. You realize how much respect he has for other stars such has Michel Jordan, Ronaldo, Zidane and more.
He talks about his life in soccer and his life outside of soccer. Sometimes I got a little confused because he would go back and forth a little bit but it makes sense if you keep reading. He talks about all the important games and all the games that meant something to him personally. It is amazing how much he remembers from his career at Man U and Real Madrid. He mentions at least 4 games a chapter if not more. I loved that because I love soccer and hearing about what happened.
He talks about his childhood and how much he was committed to playing. The long nights with his dad in the park and then going to watch his dad play soccer with his friends and how he was so happy when he got to play with them, about how he always liked to play against the older kids for a challenge. How the Ridge Way Rovers, his childhood team and his dad and his coaches made him the player that he is today.
He talks about all his time with Man U. He talks about his time with the child development team, how he struggled to get a starting position in the first team when his friends were already starting regularly. How he scored his amazing goal from half field to make people start realizing him.

This book was very interesting when it comes to details and anecdotes. It had a lot of information about Becks and that was what made this book fun to read.
Despite how great the book is, it can be better. It can have more detail about a few things, such as Beck's role with his boss and less details on subjects such as lossing a match and how it felt.
But other than that, it is a great book and I recomment this to everyone who knows Dave and is a fan of his.

Are you looking for a great book to read? Then the book for you is Beckham Both Feet on the Ground. This is a fantastic autobiography by one of the greatest living soccer players of all time. You're probably thinking yuck soccer. That's boring. Well you couldn't be any more wrong. This book not only talks about his incredible soccer career, but he also talks about his fantastic stories of his childhood and his wonderful wife and children. This book goes through his whole life story from when he was a little boy in London to his new home in Real Madrid. He is said to be the next big soccer prodigy the world has ever seen. Is it true? He tells many stories of his glories victories to his upsetting losses. This book is an emotional roller coaster. From getting a red card in the world cup to winning the FA Primer league with his beloved club team Manchester United. This book is the number one international best seller. It was easy to understand. It was a lengthy book but don't be intimidated. It was so intriguing that you wont want to put it down. There are also a variety of pictures to help better understand what he is saying. To read more about the wonderful life of David Beckham pick this book up were ever books are sold.

I recently became a fan of David Beckham and reading this book really made me a bigger fan. I recommand this book to any David Beckham Fan. This book takes you to a journey from his childhood days, to meeting his wife Victoria (Posh Spice), his 98 World Cup experience, the birth of his two adorable sons, Brooklyn (4) and Romeo (1), his experince as a Man. U player and his reasons for leaving Man. U and joining Real Madrid. I really felt for his when he explained his experiences. I remember having tears when he talked about the birth of his son, Brooklyn.
The book also has some excellent pictures of him and his family. If your a huge David Beckham fan, than I higly recommand this book.
