For beginners, it should be noted, that this book is more than just a puff piece about the fabulous Lionel Messi, and it does jump around a lot with many of the other Barca team members,even if it leaves out many of the best Italian and other great players of the teams also then playing and challenging Barca.
In short, it assumes that the reader is already somewhat familiar with the previous several decades of the European football scene, and shouldn't get confused. In addition, the author writes with great and delicious excitement, and it is so fascinating to read, and full of excitement too, that I recommend it to anyone interested in sports of any kind, if not already a soccer fanatic.
The juxtaposition of FCB's darkest days to its' brightest are riveting reading for the casual or even non-fan of the sport or this team. As with most great stories it is about the people involved and these people are fascinating. The times when the club appeared to be hitting on all cylinders,had behind the scenes activities working against the club are fascinating. Sadly the positive to negative shift for a FCB great, Ronaldinho are illuminating as to what really matters.
FC Barcelona's expression of Mes Que Un Club - More than a Club is shown to be more than a marketing slogan. The club didn't do everything right to be certain but even their missteps show valuable lessons in how to stay true to your heart. The ebb and flow of this great team's most recent decade really can show others how to focus on the important matters.
Graham Hunter specifically detailed every necessary character, every math, every policy the managers made. I have been addicted reading this book and have been unable to get rid of it. I'm a Barca fan since 2007, they are really good.
Just last night, having read three chapters in this book, i intuitively watched the Champions league 2011, in which Barca 3:1 Manchester United, I cant remember how many times I have watch the recording video, but that one was the most impressive one, having what Graham Hunter written in his book, and you watch the game, it's completely different.
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO BARCA FANS AND FOOTBALL PROFESSIONALS.
