And yet there are areas where he only skims the surface - his drug addiction, his womanizing. Maradona wants this autobiography to be first and foremost about his love affair with soccer, and his trials and tribulations in navigating the politics of the game. I'm not too sure if this paints a complete picture of the man.
What I do admire about Maradona in this book is his numerous recollections of the little guys - those otherwise unsung individuals who at various points in his life had touched him and made a difference. Despite being the most sought after player during his heydays, and among the richest and most powerful footballer in the world, Maradona has vivid details of his encounters and speaks of them with the highest regard.
Perhaps in typical fashion, Maradona sets out to defy convention - don't try to put him in a box. You just cannot define the man with a single label. It is as Maradona says at the end "I'm me, Maradona. I am El Diego'
