The man. The legend. The autobiography.

Even people who don't know football know Pele. The best of a generation of Brazilian players universally acknowledged as the most accomplished and attractive group of footballers ever to play the game, he won the World Cup three times and is Brazil's all-time record goalscorer.

But how did this man -- a sportsman, a mere footballer, like many others -- become a global icon? Was it just by being the best at what he did, or do people respond to some other quality? In this book, the world's greatest footballer gives us the full story of his incredible life and career. Told with his characteristic grace and modesty, but covering all aspects of his playing days and his subsequent careers as politician, international sporting ambassador and cultural icon, PELE: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY is an essential volume for all sports fans, and anyone who admires true rarity of spirit.

'An inspiring story... Pele's innate dignity and modesty shine through this book'
Sunday Telegraph

'
Pele has a mythical status in football and he adds to it in Pele: The Autobiography'
Sunday Times

'Pele's rise to football superstardom is described with grace and modesty and explains why he was beloved by the whole world'

'Of huge interest even to readers indifferent to its story of prowess trouncing prejudice... Every dressing-room, let alone every changing-room, should have one'
Independent
