Andrés Iniesta is the Barcelona and Spain legend, rated by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Paul Scholes as one of the greatest footballers of all time. This is the thinking fan's footballer, with a thinking fan's football audiobook.
Andrés Iniesta was 12 years old when scouts invited him into Barcelona's famous La Masia academy. Shortly after he joined the club, Barca legend Pep Guardiola remarked of him, 'This lad is going to retire us all'.
Iniesta rapidly became a permanent fixture in the Barca midfield, propelling the club to a raft of trophies, including eight La Liga championships and four Champions League titles. With his country he has won the European Championship twice and scored the winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final.
Behind the wonderfully graceful passing and movement and the accolades and trophies he has garnered, there exists an intelligent and thoughtful man who, until now, has let his beautifully skillful feet do the talking. In The Artist: Being Iniesta, the Spanish maestro paints a vivid self-portrait in his own words but also in those of his coaches, teammates, opponents, friends and family. The result is intriguing.
