Giving insight into the life and career of the 2013 FIFA World Footballer of the Year, Cristiano Ronaldo, this book delves into his childhood on the small island of Madeira; joining Sporting Clube in the Portuguese capital Lisbon; and lighting up the European stage, with starring roles for Manchester United and Real Madrid. A player known for outstanding skill, devastating pace, fantastic ball control, and incredible power shooting with either foot, few contemporaries can match his talents. Written in a lively, buzzing style and filled with fun features, fantastic photographs, and enlightening quotes, this book celebrates the Portuguese maestro's early life—he was named in honor of former President Ronald Reagan—and his career on and off the pitch. All in all this is a highly entertaining insight into a pro soccer legend.
