Read the stories of the greatest players on the field today: * David Beckham is a celebrity who continues to catch the world's attention on and off the pitch * Ronaldinho was named FIFA World Player in 2004 and 2005 and FIFPro World Player in 2005 * Pavel Nedved, the great Czech midfielder, is now winning games for Juventus in Italy * Wayne Rooney, working-class Liverpool teen, is well on his way to superstardom * Thierry Henry came from a Parisian ghetto to become one of the fastest strikers to ever play the game * Djibril Cisse, known for his speed, acceleration and distinctive hairstyles, is making a comeback from an injury that almost cost him his leg * Zinedine Zidane, the French midfielder, scored the winning goal in the 1998 World Cup * Francesco Totti is the Italian star forward whose great talent is often overshadowed by his turbulent personality * Frank Lampard, who came from a great soccer family, was voted England's 2004/2005 Player of the Year * And many more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good This book is a good source of knowledge about the players. It tells you about the players and their claims to fame, but some things just really don't matter, but then again what else would you say? Anyways, this book will tell you what national and club team they play for and when they started playing and an overview of their career-and a bit more.
