Lionel Messi and the Art of Living [9781785314506]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Lionel Messi and the Art of Living is a bold and insightful examination of a world-famous sporting hero's career from an entirely new perspective, providing a context extending far beyond the football field. The idea that sports stars are role models is a cliche, but it is also true in a way that is rarely appreciated. Although the details of Messi's story are already well known, The Art of Living examines afresh and anew his highs and lows, his successes and failures, his ongoing evolution and his endless struggle to succeed. It encourages us to consider, to analyse and - above all - to think about Messi's career from a different viewpoint, understanding how his journey can be related to our own lives on a meaningful and impactful level. Containing exclusive, illuminating interviews with deep thinkers and high achievers from a number of different fields, this book delivers a fresh and inspiring approach to a global icon, ensuring that you will never look at Lionel Messi - or life - in the same way again.
AUTHOR: Andy West lives in Barcelona and reports on Spanish football for a number of international media outlets, including BBC Sport. He has been writing professionally about sport for 20 years, initially as head of media for Reading Football Club and later in a variety of freelance writing, broadcast and communications roles for the likes of Manchester City, The Football Association and Euroleague Basketball. Lionel Messi and the Art of Living is his first book.
