If you're a Cristiano Ronaldo fan. This is a book to read, you might know a lot about him already but this book provides great details about him and his important achievements in life. It even contains a little of his dramatic moments in life. 5 stars. CR7 all day every day.!

I am a very big Real Madrid fan, and thought it would be great to read about our current best player. It was great to learn about the upbringing of Ronaldo and why he is the way he is. It has a very good breakdown of each of the clubs tenures and the top things that happened at each. Definitely a good read for any Real fan or Ronaldo fan!

This is a fun read because here in the U.S. we do not get a media insight of the biggest soccer players in the world. I found it so intriguing the details about relationships with coach and player, and player and the media. We also do not get an idea of where the player was developed and where they started their career. I wish there were more books like this. Understanding the psyche of one of the world's best is a fortune that I loved reading.

I loved this book. I am a huge CR7 fan and I think he is just amazing! I learned a lot of stuff that I didn't know before about him, even after reading his autobiography. I would recommend this book to everyone!

This was purchased for my 14 year old son. Ronaldo is his favorite soccer player, so it makes reading fun. He really enjoyed the book, he thought he knew all there was to know about Ronaldo, but learned some new facts after reading this book.

A very good look into the life of CR7, who he is, what shaped him and made him who he is today. Organization of the book could've been a little better as some of the chapters were a bit misaligned. But overall a good book.

He is a great soccer player. The effort that he puts into his soccer and the need to be the best. He is a great example of somebody that comes from a poor back ground and difficult childhood that you can do something with your life if the will is there.
Anybody that is a fan of RC7 must read this book.
