Andrea Pirlo: I think therefore I play Book

One of the finest footballers of his generation, Andrea Pirlo reinvented the deep-lying midfield position into something that resembles that of an NFL quarterback. Dictating the play and able to place a pass on a sixpence from 50 yards, Andrea Pirlo's autobiography, I Think Therefore I Play, offers fascinating insight into the life and career of one of the Beautiful Game's master craftsmen.Dead-eyed, calm, composed and majestic, Andrea Pirlo has played with - and been hailed a great by - some of the best footballers of the last 20 years, including (the real) Ronaldo, Andriy Shevchenko, Clarance Seedorf, Filippo Inzaghi, Kaka, Alessandro Nesta, Gennaro Gattuso and more. In the book, Pirlo lifts the lid on these fantastic footballing personalities - both on and off the pitch - giving readers a never-before-seen insight into the thoughts of Andrea Pirlo and the backroom goings-on of Serie A championship-winning sides (including AC Milan and Juventus) and the Italian national team, Gli Azzurri .Refreshing, classy and laugh-out-loud funny, I Think Therefore I Play is a must-read book for anyone with an interest in football, from those well-acquainted with Pirlo's mastery to those who have been freshly introduced to his effortless abilities at the World Cup in Brazil. It seems writing comes to him as effortlessly as his footballing abilities!Read More
