Nothing can truly prepare you for I Am Zlatan. The arrogance and bravado which flood the pages could, from a less enigmatic person, seem over the top and perhaps false. However this is Zlatan who is infamously reknowned for such things and therefore they are the moments which truly raise the book to the level of brilliance which match his play on the pitch. We hear of his struggles in youth football where his dark features set him apart from the rest of his Swedish team mates and his clashes with the biggest names in football management. Every page glitters with his personality making this one of the most fun football autobiographies of many years. Thoroughy recommended

Extraordinary * Daily Mail *

Terrific . . . Far more insightful than your typical memoir, Ibra'sbook tells his story of growing up as the son of immigrants in Sweden and pulls no punches when it comes to his opinions ofsome of the biggest names in the game * Sports Illustrated *

It is so good. It is so bloody good . . . a futureclassic that will change Sweden . . . a masterpiece * Aftonbladet *
Good God, this is dynamite! * Sportbladet *

“the sports biography of the year!”

Massively egotistical and controversial, but comes across as highly likeable in this book.
Starting at his troubled childhood, all the way through to his big money move to PSG, I simply couldn't put this book... More
