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. `A revealing autobiography of a footballing genius' Sunday Times

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 *
