In 22 short essays, Punti explores the beauty, the hunger, the genius and the obsession of Messi - he takes us from the near-mythical scenery of a South American footballing youth, where the world is "an infinite football pitch", to the glory and the struggle of a life on the international stage.

"Jordi Puntí’s stunning tribute will captivate football aficionados as well as fans of fine writing"

If you don’t know who Lionel Messi is you won’t enjoy this book much. If you do, you probably will. But if you know who Messi is and you’ve got at least a 2:1 in English, comp. lit. or similar, you are going to absolutely love it. This is definitely one for the football aficionado as well as for fans of fine writing.
