'This is an operatically emotional book, and also an exceptionally vivid one' - Martin Amis, The Guardian 

Diego Maradona: hero or villain? One of the world's greatest footballers tells his story in his own words.

One thing is certain: he was the greatest footballer of his generation - and perhaps of all time. A poor boy from a Buenos Aires shanty-town, his genius with a ball took him to the heights of European and world football, and his struggle with the pressures of life inside and outside the game pulled him right back down again.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is an operatically emotional book, and also an exceptionally vivid one" Martin Amis, Guardian "A revealing autobiography of a footballing genius" Sunday Times Sports Book of the Week "El Diego illustrates the man's simple, unadulterated love for the game, for the pure unsullied act of taking a football and making it dance to his exuberant tunes. It's a love story, without a happy ending, stopping when he walks off the pitch for the last time" Scotsman "It is the autobiography of a footballer, not a celebrity who played football - Maradona's is a turbulent love story about his passion for the game" The Times "Let's say it now, the real reason you want to read a book written by Diego Maradona is to see whether a genius who could skip past every assailant on the planet (except the ones with a wrap of coke) can actually hold a pen, let alone string a sentence together. Thankfully he can." Arena
