Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Thoroughly enjoyable and insightful."
    Would you listen to The Artist: Being Iniesta again? Why?

    Yes, I would like to listen to this audiobook again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Learning how a professional football players should behave, to set an example to other kids.


    What about Joe McGann’s performance did you like?

    The performance was fine but (and I am nit picking here) I think it may have benefitted from a more local (or at least spanish) accent. That is me being a bit harsh though!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Andres Iniesta - the nice guy who won it all!


    Any additional comments?

    I did not know very much about the life of Andres Iniesta before I listened to this Audiobook but now I have read it I can appreciate far more what a great player he truly is. It is also nice to understand that in such an age, nice guys can still win in life!<br/>I would highly recommend this book to anybody who claims to be remotely interested in football.

    "A must read for an Iniesta fan; not otherwise."

    Great Narrator to the book! Keeps you interested in an otherwise not so interesting book.
